I am graduating from school with a 4 year degree in Metalsmithing
and Jewelry Design from the University of Kansas and I want to work
as an apprentice jeweler for some years in order to learn more about
jewelry making, which is what I like. Eventually I would like to have
my own business but for that I understand that there is still a lot
to learn, not just on techniques but on craft and finishing, and
other important things that you only learn when you are working in
the field. However I have been having problems finding a job, I have
looked on job search engines but all the bench jewelers positions
require experience, and I can’t find anyone who wants to hire an
apprentice jeweler, and I don’t really know where to search.
Does anyone know of someone who wants to hire or somewhere were I
Right now I am in Kansas but I don’t have any problems relocating.
any suggestions? comments? help?
