I visited the sites you mentioned in your post to Orchid, the
location seems very attractive, the jewellery does as well.
I did not respond to your eariler postings because I’m a
Canadian. I expected that someone from the U.S. would be a more
likely candidate. No concerns over work permits, green cards
If this is not a problem …we should discuss it further.
I graduated from George Brown College in Toronto some years ago.
I have solid, well developed skills in fabrication and casting,
as well as experience in setting . I have never specialized in
one area as the demands of the work tended to be extremely varied
. I would kill for the chance to do no repairs and concentrate
on fabrication! Like you I am surprised you didn’t get more
I originally got involved in goldsmithing because of my interest
in stones, the gemmology course was full, so an enterprising
instructor talked me into a casting course…I was hooked for
life! The chance to work with interesting stones became an added
bonus. Your strong involvement in the field makes this
opportunity even more appealing!
I would like to discuss the possibility of working with you in
in more detail. If the above concerns are not an issue, I would
be more than willing to drive down and meet with you in person.
If you would like more detailed about me please
e-mail and I will send a more complete cv.
