William C Meyer
Howell, New Jersey. USA
Formerly I was an electrical engineer for over 30 years. In 1980 I
started engraving for my wife’s jewelry business and gradually
ventured into jewelry designing. In 1990 I joined my wife full time
in the jewelry business and have been there ever since.
I have won 2 international design contests with some on my original
designs and presently have moved to full 3D CadCam design with my
own mill. This has given us a great edge on the design of new pieces
because of the intricate designs and speed we can complete them.

basic methods, but in need of experience and external advice.
