The People's Academy Copper Designs
T. Michael Thomas is a coppersmith, metalsmith and designer. His creativity led him to design extraordinary copper jewelry made from recycled copper that is not only unique but sustainable. He is the founder and director of The People's Academy, Inc. He is not only a designer and smith of copper, but he imparts his knowledge to all those who are willing to learn from him. The school he has begun gives new hope in lives of inner city youth (no upper limit on age!) and allows them to get off a path leading nowhere, to a path that brings purpose and prosperity.
Be sure to come see his designs on our runway - they will create an indelible image in your mind.
