In looking up Charles’s books on his website, I found the history of
Orchid. Facinating. I encourage everyone to read it.
The Complete Story of Ganoksin and The Orchid Community
By Charles Lewton-Brain
The Ganoksin Project is now 8 years old.
Ganoksin is a place for knowledge and discussion to make
metal-artists lives easier. It is a place to dismantle the
traditions of secrecy and not sharing found globally in
the jewelry world. It is a place of exchange, lively
debate and documentation. Ganoksin is about community and sharing. It
is through this access to each other that we all learn and improve
production and our business. It is about making jewelers lives easier
Find out how the Ganoksin Project started, grown and read the
personal journeys of the people behind it…
