JEWELRY, ROCKS AND MINERALS, FOSSILS, & FINE ART
The business name, MUSE, means 'the spirit of inspiration.'
Welcome to my website. I hope you enjoy your visit and that you are able to find something inspiring or worthwhile. I am an artist, author, and research scientist living and working in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. My original jewelry and artworks can be purchased at MUSE gallery, in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. For an incomplete list of research and educational publications, see the Curriculum Vitae page on this website.
I've been making silver and gold handcrafted jewelry for about 20 years. I passed the point of having made 10,000 pieces of hand-made jewelry about 4 years ago, and then permanently stopped keeping track. (beyond that, I think it is probably adequate to just say 'a lot.' Below are some examples of my work. More pieces are shown in a gallery on my facebook page.
I'm a guy trying to contribute to the world he lives in in the best ways he can. I'd like to enjoy the journey along the way, inspire others to be the best that they can be, and learn as much as possible while I'm at it.
I believe in the power of science and education to create a better world, both for people alive today, and for generations to come. I believe that the contemplation and practice of simple compassion can help bring an end to conflict and help to end suffering in the world. I believe that it is what you do that matters, not what you think.
And, I believe this is enough to keep me happily busy.
