[FL] Need for instructors

Hello Orchid members,

This May 16th thru the 20th another group I belong to “Aspiring
metalsmiths” are having a gathering to learn some new skill sets. I
thought I had instructors lined up and committed. But alas some
commitments fell trough. So with your help here I thought I would be
able to solicit some instructors or at least get some names of
instructors willing to (for a fee of course) teach. This Gathering
will take place in Saint Petersburg, FL. We will have the use of the
jewelry facilities at the Morean Arts Center on Central Ave. The
skills of those attending are of a vary wide range as well as the
interests of what it is we would like to improve upon or learn as
new! Some of the requests have been for fold forming, the use of the
hydraulic press, micro folding, torch enameling, flush setting and
advanced stone setting and clasps or hollow forms.

You may contact me off forum at beans2you at localnet dot com.

Thank you
Robin Bean

I just finished day 5 at Jewelry Studies International in Austin, Tx!
What awonderful experience. Ronda Coryell and Vasken Tanielian are
excellent instructors and they went above and beyond teaching the
class. The class was rings in Argentium. It was my first time working
with Argentium and I love it!! I will definitely take more classes
with Ronda and Vasken.


I could probably arrange to be back from my spring trip by then, and
I could do some workshops.

I challenge the experienced and develop the novices, so there is no
need to worry about the range of skill sets.


Mary Thank you for passing along your experiences with these
instructors for me to check out!!

Hello fellow Orchid followers,

I want to thank all those that responded to my request for
instructors. It was overwhelming the talents that were offered. I

year. Again a big THANK YOU to you all!!!
