Career Day – Western Silversmith Scott Hardy

For many artists, the dream is to turn their creativity into a full-time job. It can be a difficult thing to do but with the right kind of dedication (and desperation), our Career Day guest this week was able get there.

Scott Hardy is a Western silversmith (which, as we learned, is different than a regular silversmith) based near Longview, AB. Scott has spent the last 40+ years drawing from his ranching roots to rise to the top of his craft. He’s also a font of knowledge on the history of cowboying in Southern Alberta.

Anyone who likes local history, or who has ever wondered about how to turn art into a career should enjoy listening to Scott speak. Hit the Spotify link below for the interview and check out Scott’s website and Instagram.
