The Little Magpie jewellery
Store manager by day…aspiring silversmith by night. I’m definitely
a beginner, but I’m having great fun. I’ve ‘re-tooled’ my studio and
am enjoying the process of taking my jewellery to a whole new level.
…and I think I’ll have lots of questions!

I joined Orchid in 2005 but dropped out after a while, and so I
thought I’d re-introduce myself. I’ve been working part-time on my
own jewelry designs and part-time in a grocery store for the last
five years, and I am just now realizing that this is not the way I
want things to be. I want to be making jewelry full-time, and since I
cannot afford to work solely on my own business, I am focusing on
getting a job as a bench jeweler and setting aside my own design
work. I hope to learn a lot from all the real jewelers here on
Orchid; the business still intimidates and confuses me. Jessica
