Ron lived in India and Thailand. Having access to some excellent rough stones, he turned them into jewelry and began his venture as a jewelry Artist. Ron has 2 Bachelor of Arts Degrees; Asian Studies and Languages of India. He is inspired by his desire to see something of beauty from the somewhat plain stones he used to create his jewelry. Ron choose Two Rivers Art Gallery because he felt that he could make his hobby a profession due to their many sales. Ron knows the Klamath language, taught it for 4 years through the tribes. He wants to put more of his native culture into his work as he continually develops unique characteristics into his artistic jewelry.
