  1. JEN LANE Some of us have our life changed by small degrees and others suddenly, for me dec 27th 2007,it was the end of a 30+ years occupation as a chef and kitchen manager but I was lucky as a teen to learn smithing from one of the few Iroquois silversmiths still working with the knowledge passed down generation to generation. The Navaho were not the only native tribe to use smithing but the Iroquois learned a few tricks from the French. I even still have a necklace passed down at least 150 or more years each generation added to it, . One of the first things I learned is, if you want to learn how to make jewelry first you have to learn to make your tools. Well Now that I am in need of a new occupation that will allow for a few restrictions, I will be making jewelry, So I am making my tools. While I am making my tools, I will be making some to sell, So that I can buy a few things I can't make. I may like the old fashion way. But my restrictions require a few modern tools
