About this pro

Here's my LinkIn profile link. https://www.linkedin.com/in/rbjewelz-burch-aa33a253

I enjoy watching the student learn to make jewelry. I see their enthusiasum go to work processing and thinking about what they are going to make. Then, that creative process begins in them as the student picks the first bead to plan their piece. Then, the actual journey begins as their jewelry piece comes to live and they see it for themselves. I personally know that feeling.
