I have recently written that I am to be going to the Fredricka
Kulicke School in Parsippany, NJ in June. If there is anyone on the
list who might also be there in June or who would like to share their
experience with this particular school, I would love to hear from
I am getting a bit of the jitters. I am mainly interested in
(fascinated by) granulation and cannot wait to explore. All the work
I have been able to find so far has been beautiful…however, all
pieces seem to be in the thousands of dollars. I am operating now
around the 150 to 225 dollar area for a nice necklace, so fine
jewelry in this range is kinda like looking to travel to Mars. I am a
bit scared. I am spending all my savings to go to school and buy
equipment. going into uncharted territory and feeling like, if I
don’t end up catching on, I will have no funds to continue at all.
I would love to look at some historical books on the ancient
techniques before I go. I am kind of what you call driven…and
pretty revved up.
I have a good amount of faith in myself that it will work out and I
love to learn. I think I am just looking for sources of information
so I can get myself in the mode.
I hope that makes sense.
