Jake Brunner is 24 years old, and two years ago he started teaching himself to be a silversmith. One of the things he's discovered is that when you are self-taught, you come up with some pretty unique solutions because you have to figure things out! He's enjoying the independence, the creativity, and the self-expression of the work. We really dig his website and his vision. Learn more about Jake at his website, Leaf and Badger (www.leafandbadger.com).
