Hi. I’m returning to jewelry making after a long hiatus. I have just
begun to set up my shop, and I have a lot of work to do cleaning
tools that have been put away for almost 20 years. I’ve also got a
lot of work to do remembering techniques. I’m hoping it’s like
getting back on a bicycle…you never forget how to ride. Can’t wait
to get started.

I do ceramics, mostly used for my jewelry. Nothing fancy, I try to
keep my items very affordable. I do some handbuilding, some molds
and have many vintage plaster molds that I use to make some unusual
pins and pendants. Hope to do some raku when I can afford to get an
area set up with my kiln. I live in rural SC with my family and
assorted dogs, cats, and now chickens. I would love to learn
metalsmithing but will have to do it on my own, there isn’t much
around here for instruction. I have done art welding in the past but
not for small items. Why is it whenever I get interested in
something the price skyrockets for the supplies!

I’m a jewelry craftsperson who has worked primarily in beads and
polymer. However, I have been moving in to working with PMC and
silver wire and metal work. I enjoy taking classes and communicating
with other craftspeople.

I am a certified PMC artisan and teach PMC classes in Vancouver
Canada. I love the product and am now experimenting with bronze and
copper. I am not a silversmith but have had quite a few silversmiths
in my classes. I thought a site like this would help me learn more
of the technical about the metals. I also am a hand
bookbinder, painter and make jewelry. I get inspiration from many
other artists and look forward to learning from Ganoksin.

Fincher V Trist
Bristol, UK

Hi, I have been learning various jewellery making skills for the
last couple of years. I mostly enjoy working with silver and silver
clay, and enamelling. So far I haven’t done any courses, so I enjoy
picking up hints and tips from books and the internet. I look
forward to having a read through this forum & having a chat :slight_smile:

I spent many years of my working life in photography, after starting
in video in 1957. I worked in various areas of technical photography
until 1975 when I opened a custom photo-lab which remained open until
I sold it in 1997. As you can guess photography was not my hobby. In
1983 I became very involved in wood and then metal. 1n 1985 I became
very involved in blacksmithing, because the photo-lab was running
smoothly, I would sneak away a few days a week and work with a well
know blacksmith for free just to learn the art. When I sold the lab,
I started to get small commissions, and decided to put up the shingle
and go for it. As you can see on my web page, DesignsInIron.com that
I have been having fun for the last 13 years.
