Carole Lockwood
Bristol, UK

I am a practicing jeweller working mostly in silver, gold and
enamels. I am a member of the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen, the Guild
of Enamellers and the Association for Contemporary Jewellery. I also
teach evening classes and students with learning difficulties, which
can be the biggest challenge of all.

Mark Covington Jeweler
Colorado Springs, Colorado. USA

I’ve been in the jewelry business since 1975. I’ve been doing trade
work the majority of that time. Moved to Colorado Springs from
Dallas, Tx in '94 and really like the pace of the city. Am fortunate
to have great clients who keep me busy with a variety of work to
keep things interesting. I look forward to learning from all the
other jewelers out there and hope I can contribute something from my
experience. Thanks, Mark Covington

Amy Ataei
Crystallized Gems
Grafton, WI. USA

I am a master-educated artist focusing on high-end beaded fashion
jewelry. Each creation is handmade WITHOUT a loom, only using needle
and monofilament thread. With such caliber materials as Russian
CZ’s, semi-precious stones and precision-cut seed beads, my designs
reflect the attention to detail appreciated by the most discerning
customer. No expense is spared with the incorporation of fine
sterling silver and gold-filled components–NO plating here! I invite
wholesalers as well as the general public to my website!
