also enameling, metalsmithing, and anything about colored stones.
Hello, Henry - - thank you for offering your knowledge! I have a
question about training - - I live in northern NJ and I’m not able to
travel or move to VA or CA or MA to attend one of the great training
programs in those states. About a year ago I completed a 6 month
intensive training program in NYC which has given me a wide set of
skills but still at the beginner level. Since then I’ve been working
on my own but I feel that I would make better progress if I could get
more solid training from a good program. Can you recommend a program
in my area? Or would it be better for me to try to find an
apprenticeship with a jeweler here? (And how do I go about doing
Thank you for your thoughts!
