Jackie Fiantaca
Asheville, NC. USA

I am an amateur metalsmith, primarily self taught with a focus on
jewelry making. I have a small shop set up in my garage with pretty
much all of the basic tools, including a jeweler’s bench, rolling
mill, two torches (one for acetylene, one uses propane), buffer,
flex shaft etc. My skills are fair though my ideas are usually far
better than I can produce but I love the craft and artistry of
metal. I learn best by watching others and exhanging ideas and
techniques with other artists.

Molly McCormick
Made for you by Molly Lu
Oriental, USA

I love making jewelry. I have worked with all types of media, but
focused my artistic energy into jewelry making after graduating from
college in 2003. I am in the process of turning a hobby into a
business, but more importanly trying to perfect my craft. My
inspiration comes from my world travels, as I love adventure and
experiencing the planet’s peoples and places. Jewelry is a facinating
medium, as from the beginning of time people have chosen to decorate
themselves with shiny and beautiful objects as a way of openly
projecting their personality or cultural affiliations. By making
jewelry, I find myself connected to all those that came before me,
and I enjoy helping my clients show the world their true colors.
Plus, its just plain fun!
