paulrobertsAn Episcopal priest, Father Paul has served parishes and dioceses in Georgia, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Texas for over 50 years but since his retirement 20 years ago, he has made his home in Dahlonega. Since then he has been busy creating handmade jewelry and teaching his crafts at William Holland School of Lapidary Arts in Young Harris. Paul is a member of the “Chestatee Artists” and the Tri-State Gem and Mineral Club and has had his pieces displayed at various area shows and in galleries such as Soque Artworks in Clarkesville and the Bleu Gallery in Dahlonega.

Paul proclaims simply, “I love rocks!” and has been a collector since he was a kid. Now he slices, trims, grinds, sands, and polishes stones to create designer freeform cabochons. Often he I combines a variety of materials into composite or intarsia pieces before setting them in silver or gold. He enjoys wire-wrap and chain-making, and occasionally ventures into the fascinating art of scrimshaw (carving and staining fossil ivory and bone). It is always an adventure to discover earth’s hidden beauty in so many different forms!
