Howdy y'all, it looks like I have died and found heaven!
« on: March 10, 2018, 03:22:19 PM »

My name is Amyayanita , it means LittleOtter and I work with silver so that is how I got the name. I love color and have always been a rockhound since I could walk and pick up the pesky things much to my mothers chrigrin. My artistic style took me on a different path from rocks and jewelry in my earlier years. I did ceramics, painting, (on large scales) welding/blacksmith work and carpentry work all in between working in offices with stuffy lawyers and financial specialists. Now I am retired in a wheelchair most of the time and loving learning the trade that I have always wanted to do all along.
I tripped upon this site by reading about stabilizing Turquoise and opals. Just one old thread and I found out so much!  Happy, happy, days! I can now see so many more pieces coming together and I have not even cut into my stones yet! making beads from stone and settings for stone is in my wheelhouse so I know I have found a great place to learn and maybe help others with some tips and tricks that I may know.  To tell the truth I may not know all that much. 
Thanks for the add and I do hope I can contribute to this forum. 
All the best. Otter

What a refreshing greeting!  Glad you found us, I had a similar Eureka moment.  I think you will find lots of like minded and very knowledgeable folks on this forum whose passion lies herein but whose paycheck may be drawn from elsewhere.
