Introducing - Jonathon Miller


Hi Everyone,

I wanted to introduce Jonathon Miller who will be with Metalwerx for
the summer. He is 16 and has been studying jewelry at his school. I
have encouraged him to sign up onto Orchid. I told Jonathon that
Orchid is an excellent resource for asking questions. Thank you all
for helping him out and answering his questions.

All the teen boys, there are three, are eager to take classes and
study for a future in making jewelry. All of them go tot he same
school and take jewelry together. Each of them have confided that
they feel odd and estranged from the other students.

I told them all about Orchid and the wonderful family of jewelers,
designers and fabricators that are waiting for their questions. Jake
Berger is taking a bench for the Fall. I couldn’t be more pleased. He
is 16 and already graduated from high school. He spent 2 months
teaching English in China and 2 months doing search and rescue in
Egypt. This summer he is teaching jewelry at a summer camp for two

A new generation of Orchidians are coming up among the ranks. I
couldn’t be more pleased.

congrats to jonathon and his friends.

within the next couple years, hopefully they won’t feel estranged
any more. easy to see in high school, but in a major full of girls
like when i was there, we were thrilled when any guy was in the
class, kind of like a celebrity. good luck to jonathon and his
