Adam’s early metalsmithing interests and development started while taking welding and blacksmithing courses in Vancouver and Nelson BC where he focused on making small metal sculptures and home decor. In 2005 he traveled to Mexico and apprenticed under master silversmiths Antonio and Enrique Lopez. They are a father and son team with a long history of teaching and jewellery making in San Miguel de Allende. 2006 Adam returned to San Miguel de Allende and was accepted into Billy Kings, Sterling Quest School of Silver Jewelry Design And Creation.
Several years later Adam returned to Sterling Quest to continue his jewellery studies and learn advanced techniques. He studied and worked in studio 7 days a week experimenting with combining his silversmithing skills with his new love of flameworking glass. Adam has made handcrafted metal and glass jewelry in Mexico, Brazil, Vancouver and Edmonton.
