[Job Search] [PA] Bench Jeweler


#1

Hi All,

My name is Blythe Lowry. I am a jeweler living in the Roxborough
section of Philadelphia. I have been enjoying Orchid for quite some
time now as a lurker. I recently lost my job working for a local
jeweler and am now in need of a new one! I graduated from The
University of the Arts in 1994 with a BFA in Crafts/Metals. I have
been making my own work as well as doing a few commissions here and
there while working in restaurants to pay the bills for the last 10
years. As I said, I was working for a local jeweler up until 2 weeks
ago. While there I was predominantly producing earrings with beads
and wire, using various wrapping techniques (although I’m quite
capable of doing far more!!). I am quite familiar with bench work,
soldering, piercing, sawing, you name it! I also became quite
involved with enameling and love it to death! I am looking for full
time work outside of the restaurant world, I just can’t do it
anymore! If anyone is looking to hire someone or knows of someone
that is looking, I would be ever so grateful for any you
may have. I appreciate all the tips and you all share
here every day, you’ve helped me out more than a few times,
hopefully you can help me with this too! I’d be more than happy to
answer any questions anyone has, just email me at
@Blythe_Lowry.

Thanks so much for reading,
Sincerely,
Blythe Lowry
