- Jim Hayes was introduced to silversmithing while in high school. He loved it, but life being what it is, it was many years later that he had the opportunity to get back to it. He took some basic silversmithing classes and did a bit of lapidary work. Jim started selling his work professionally at the Portland Saturday Market approximately 30 years ago in Portland, Oregon. He worked there five years before expanding to shops and galleries coast to coast. Six years ago, he started cutting, shaping and polishing stones again. He travels around Oregon to rock shows and to visit other rockhounds and miners. He’s always looking for that special material to make that special piece. He lives in the foothills of the Coast Range in Oregon.
