I need to know where I would look to find a metal smith and a
jewelry designer for hire.
Well, I think you have made a good start here at the Orchid to find
a metal smith and a jewelry designer.
I would go through the Orchid Gallery and start with an artist’s
style & workmanship. If you see someones work that appeals to you,
then contact that person and get the ball rolling. If you like their
style, workmanship and ideas once you have expressed your needs to
them…then you may have found your artist.
Although I am not in the Orchid Gallery, I personally would like to
throw in my hat as a possible candidate.
