Larry Holley -
working for 35 years as a corporate pilot Larry retired and moved to
North-East Mississippi. With time on his hands he asked his wife,
Brenda, what she thought would be a good Hobby. With only a couple of
seconds reflection she responded "Silver Jewelry, you would be a great
Silversmith". Larry took her direction and began teaching himself
the basic of Jewelry making. He was soon selling a few pieces and his
skills grew. He attended the Wm. B. Holland School of Labidary Arts in
Young Harris, Georgia. He continued his education this year with a
course in advanced Silversmith Skills.
Larry's work varies from Traditional to Abstract but is
always unusual and one of a kind. The passion he has for his work is
evidenced in his results and demeanor. His pieces are totally hand
crafted and he uses many exotic stones from around the world. Click
