By the way, did you ever look into Bauer Studio. I was there
last Saturday and had a great time!
You might also wish to check on Jewelry Arts Institute on B'way
& 79th. Cecelia Bauer had been a teacher there before going off
on her own. Friends study with Cecelia and like her. I've been
studying at JA for a bit over 3 years and like it very much. They
do teach only 'traditional' jewelry (read that as ancient, i.e.
byzantine, greek, etc). JA used to be Kulick-Stark Studio.
If you need any more info you can e-mail me privately.
