I am pleased to announce that fellow orchid member Belle Brooke
Designs won this years Halstead Bead Inc, National Business Grant
Competition. I am extremely proud of all the hard work Brooke puts
into designing, fabricating, and building her business (being her
bench monkey I am aware of this). Check out
www.halsteadbead.com/grant to see Brooke and the other finalists.
Internships at Belle Brooke Designs (located in downtown Los Angeles)
are available for basic shop duties, if interested please contact me
for further offline
Thank you to Hanuman, Charles, Ton and everyone else on Orchid for
providing and supporting this amazing resource to the jewelry
industry. Much bench time is spent discussing topics on Orchid
(including shop goblins to blame when things go missing).
