I'm also a published author, and my credits include contributing to the Warman's Jewelry books written by Christie Romero, "William Spratling and the Mexican Silver Renaissance: Maestros de Plata" edited by Penny Morrill, and I co-founded Modern Silver online magazine (along with Marbeth Schon) and contributed many articles over it's decade in operation.
