I started as a self taught stone cutter in the lapidary arts and soon had too many stones to know what to do with. I took a local class in metals through our local parks and recreation department and eventually got a job as an apprentice at a jewelry shop. Now I am a jeweler and come here for more knowledge to better the art.


Good for you Jennifer. That is awesome to cut your own stones and mount them on gold or silver. Good luck to you. This is a great place to learn.
