exciting news!!!

I've been home a week and here I am talking about more travels!!

Recently, I've been awarded the Ramona Solberg travel grant by the Seattle Metal's Guild. It is a great honor for me and I will be traveling to Cairo, Egypt in May to work and study with the famous goldsmiths of Khan el Khalili. I am sooooo excited to return to Cairo after 10 years and wander the streets, eat the food and study the culture of goldsmithing. It will be interesting to compare and contrast what I've learned, over the years, in India to Egypt. It's going to be a great adventure and I can't wait!!
