The long and short of it is that, now that I'm a teacher, I have no time to
sit at the bench and make jewelry. And when I do have time, it seems like I'm
involved in something else. Anyways, the nice part is I'm just beginning to
teach jewelry-making to *my* students, and it's nice because it was in high
school when I myself began making jewelry. Maybe I'll plant a few seeds and
some of my kids will become silversmiths.
I'm 37 years old, and a male (feel I have to explain my gender - it's kind of
a hermaphroditic name...). Did anyone see The Ice Storm? Well, I grew up in
New Canaan. But my parents didn't go to key parties. They had eleven
children, so their hands were kinda full. If you come visit, I'll take you on
a movie tour! One of my students was even an extra!
Oh yeah, I also write. If anyone gets the Crafts Report in their school or
studio, look on page six (?) of the April issue - I wrote an article on
recycling. It's online, too, at least for the month... www.craftsreport.com.
The article is titled "Confessions of a Serial Recycler".
This is my second year of teaching in public schools (a year of private before
that...). Last summer, I enjoyed my first "free" summer by driving around the
country and sightseeing for five weeks. It was so much fun I'm going to do it
again. If anyone wants to invite me for a visit, well, heck, just let me
know! I also bicycled across the United States once, in 1990.
So, that's me life, or at least some of it.
