Chad Parker, Jeweler

Chad has lived in Colorado for more than 50 years.  He attended CSU, became a teacher, and met his wife in Colorado. During his almost three decades of teaching, students helped him discover his appreciation of art. His love of minerals, gemstones, and geology led him to silversmithing. He finds inspiration in many places:  nature, architecture, science fiction, and humor. Eventually, he found a way to incorporate his love of teaching and art. by teaching silversmithing to others. He does this both in person and online through YouTube and now through an Ebook about jewelry design and instruction available through the Blue Moose Art GalleryWebsite.
