Metalsmith Benchtalk is hosted by Jay Whaley owner of Whaley Studios and co-hosted and technically produced by Aly Kendrick. Whaley Studios is all things jewelry and the art of metalsmithing. This is and has been a passion of Jay's for some time- he served as the head jewelery instructor at the University of California, San Diego, Crafts Center for over two decades and is also the owner/operator of Whaley Studios in the Hillcrest District of San Diego, and the inventor of many fine jewelry making tools. During our program, our intention is to feature artists in the craft and discuss, educate, problem solve and entertain callers while we consider topics of interest in the metalsmithing and jewelry making trades.

About Chris: Chris began his goldsmithing career in 2000 and has studied under some of the most influential and highly respected art jewelry metalsmiths in the US. Mastery of several torches, alloying high-karat golds, fusing dissimilar metals, understanding metallurgy and chemistry, and exploring hand-applied textures and patinas have lead to the creation of Urban-Armour. Chris discovered the ancient Japanese technique, Zougan, to be a perfect process for applying fine gold and silver to iron and other non-precious metals on his jewelry. The work now includes a palette of 7 distinct gold alloys fused to highly hand-textured iron at temperatures approaching 2000 degrees F Urban-Armour jewelry begs to be worn to understand its ?indestructible substance and beauty.?
