Jeweler's schools


#1

hello. i am a relatively new member to orchid and want to thank
all of you for your fabulous pearls of i am looking
for a listing of all jewelery schools, both nationally and
internationally, as well as, a listing of all metalsmithing
guilds/clubs. any direction?

i am also putting up a web page and was wondering if i can write
a disclaimer like “any item or portion thereof cannot be copied
without the written permission of the artist”? does that give me
any ground to stand on in case someone duplicates my work or do i
have to get copyrights?

i appreciate your help. marci lebowitz of @marci_r_lebowitz

Get a back issue of the April issue of Lapidary Journal (every
year). It has an extensive listing of schools all over the US.
If you have a specific type of class you are looking for, or can
be more specific in your goals (hobbyist, professional training,
geographic restraints, etc.) you could post the list and we can
give you recommendations.

Also, if you join SNAG, they might have/sell a list. While you
wait for your Lap Journal back issue to arrive, go to the
bookstore and look at the ads in all the metal magazines.

Jeweer’s Circular Keystone’s site has extensive (but not
exhaustive) listings of schools of jewelry, horology, gemology,
etc. with fairly detailed course descriptions. It’s worth a look.
Sorry I don’t have the url bookmarked on this browser.

Hi Marci –

Sorry this is rather late: I’m backed up in my e-mail reading
due to a computer crash a couple weeks ago. Hope this isn’t too
late to be of help.

AJM publishes a guide to schools where jewelry manufacturing
skills are taught. You can access it at their Web site at
http://mjsa.polygon.net/ajm. (paper copies are available by
e-mailing them at ajmmagazine@compuserve.com or by phoning them
at 800-444-6572.)

Good luck
