Greetings! I have had many references to this list through the
years, but have’n subscribed until now. I participate, although
not so recently, in dicussions on the rec.crafts.jewelry
newsgroup. I own a designer Retail store in a suburb of Des
Moines, Iowa that makes pieces to order for my customers, as well
as my own designs. I placed Second last year in the IA Jeweler’s
association Design competition, and First this year. Just
starting to move towards more of my own pieces, instead of work
for those that retain my services.
I have been a bench jeweler for 17 years. In 1997, I finished 8
years of home study, between long work days, to get my G.G. from
GIA. I am also a member of the National Association of Jewelry
Over 2 years ago, when I started my web site, I convinced
Michael M. Dyber to let me represent his work on the Internet. I
will be meeting up with him in Tucson in Feb. Anyone else out
there Like to get together 4th - 6th?
I hope that I may contribute usefully to this list!
