Tina Ann Baker
Kenmore, WA. USA

Hello! I have 30 years experiance as a repair and custom jeweler. I
have been self employed since 1995 when I was featured in REI’s
holiday catalog selling a line of pendants and earrings that looked
like little kayaks,canoes ect…I despise production work, while it
has its value for the newbie to sharpen their skills I just can’t
stay awake anymore. I still do repairs becuse I love the thrill of
seeing great grandmas ring self distruct from unknown causes,And love
the challange of putting it back at a $$$ loss. In the last 4-5 years
boredome has sent me to the street so to speak. I have cast off the
bulk of my diamond, ruy,saphire crowd in favor of dinasaur bone,
druzy found items and one of a kind shapes. Most of the peices I make
now are one of a kinds in all types of metal with some limited
edition stuff.I’ve done a few trunk shows and am looking to do more
shows. I ve got a few freinds giving me advice but this is a brave
new world for me.

Barbara Mullally
Moondance Gallery
Clayton, Ontario. Canada

I am a studio jeweler working in Clayton (population 150+), Ontario,
Canada, located about 45 miles from Otawa, the captial. Ater 20
years of part time efforts, I am now working on my jewelry full time
in order to develop a good body of work. My pieces are mainly in
silver combined with interesting stones and my carved bone elements.

I have been working in copper this past winter and am fascinated by
its versatility and potential. I bought Charles Lewton Brain’s new
book on fold forming, a technique I was introduced to a few years
ago in a summer seminar, and am using an exploration of the
technique to further my designs. I am also teaching myself to use
enamels to add colour.
