After 37 years of going it mostly alone, I am exploring taking on an
apprentice/ intern/ employee.
My motivation is twofold.
Firstly, as I mature as a craftsman, I am realizing that I have a
lot to pass on in terms of practical experience and shop skills.
Secondly, I am finding myself wanting to hand over certain skilled
tasks to a second pair of hands and eyes in order to free mine up for
design and development.
This person will need to have a solid beginning working knowledge of
bench skills, tools and processes ( 5 or more years out of school and
some working experience as a bench jeweler or similar situation), as
well as keyboarding and the ability to think independently.
Currently I am developing a line of engraved platinum and diamond
jewelry, based on a collection of designs which evolved during my art
show period, back in the '70s. My studio is located in the woods of
North Carolina, near Durham.
