Growing up, I loved the visits to my grandfather's workshop in England. He was a silversmith and his name was Ronald E. Couch. Using hammers and fire which are all the things kids love (!), he made beautiful items of silver and made a living for himself pursuing his art. See the photos below of a few of his creations!
Now, in 2016, just short of my 50th birthday, I'm going to follow in his footsteps and begin my journey of being a silversmith in America. Yeah!
