Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you - I am especially busy right now with upcoming show deadlines and some custom orders. St. Louis has a nice metals community going on in the bi-state area…we started a metals guild a few years back (The Society for Midwest Metalsmiths - consider joining) which has been a good way to meet others in the field in addition to bringing in artists and hosting sales and shows. Craft Alliance has been growing their metals department with good instructors, and the area has Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, Maryville University St. Louis, and Fontbonne offering metalsmithing courses. How's the metals climate in KC?

Your welcome, I really enjoy your work. I have actually made some more rubber band pieces since, you reminded me that I should upload those photos! Right now I'm exploring some new things, but I may go back to the rubber bands at some point.

Special Note--I want this to be a way to share how we are all trying to figure out the paths to what’s next and where to go, not answers or things to do, but…See More
