In 2014 I bought my first torch; hoping to learn the technique of metal brazing. I've been soldering electronics since I was young, so the transition to precious metal made sense. But, as I came to find out metallurgy is one part art and two parts science. Over the years the quality of my work has increase as I've practiced the craft and deepened my understanding of material science. I predominately work with gold, silver, copper and the alloys derived from these metals.
