Enamelists Needed


#1

I am in the Southern California area, and am interested in finding an
enamelist to do glass enamel on a small line of patterned ring bands.
I am making samples now, and need someone to help me for these, and
hopefully handle a small production run. Does anyone know of a
company or individual who does this sort of thing? Any Recommendation
highly welcomed - regardless of location! Thanks for all help! Lissa

a Jeweler’s Directory…there are about 25 companies listed under

Hi Lissa!

I am an apprentice to Fredricka Kulicke. She is a goldsmith and also
does beautiful enameling. She may be interested in enameling your
line of patterned ring bands. I believe she would need a little more
detail about your line - what type of metal, etc. Also if you could
provide pictures that would be a great help. Is there a web address
where we may look? Fredricka’s web site is undergoing lots of changes
right now. The last time I checked, she did not have any of her
enameling on the site, but feel free to look at her work (with also a
link to her school site and her email) at fredrickakulicke.com . You
can email me off-line at @Claire_Oelkers .

I must say, before I go, that I am ever so grateful for Orchid and
all of you Orchidians, and of course many thanks to Hanuman, who will
soon be receiving a donation from me in appreciation for all his
efforts.

Thanks to all,
Claire
