After a long career in public education teaching language arts at both the high school and college level, Carolyn K. Plummer found time after retirement to study and practice silver smithing and related activities.
“I suppose it goes back to growing up in a rural environment in Montana, and having a family that collected rocks and fossils.My husband has said that I never saw I rock I didn’t like.”
Formal coursework in jewelry making includes two semesters at Metropolitan State College, and a variety of workshops in the Denver area and Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Carolyn’s jewelry has been available at a boutique featuring Western couture, Red Rocks Golf Club’s Holiday Boutique, and most recently at Evergreen Fine Arts Gallery. “As I continue to explore jewelry making, the biggest struggle is to stay focused as new ideas come to my attention,” says Carolyn.“But maybe I’m a living testimonial to a belief in life-long learning, and that’s what I hope to impart to others.”
