Please welcome our newest members!

Stephen E Moore
Auckland, New Zealand

I have been a fully qualified jeweller for 40 years now, and I am
currently running a jewellery making programme in New Zealand at
Manukau Institute of Technology.

Privately I take great pains to make beautiful works, designed by
myself, and not all of my pieces are jewellery. My motivation is the
pursuit of perfection. I sustain a very high standard of
workmanship, no matter what I make, and I have received many
commissions because of my unique abilities. I take the greatest
delight in innovating ways to achieve the pieces which I design,
this quite often involves the making of special tools to complete
the work I do. Hopefully you will see some of my works in the
Ganoksin Gallery, and I look forward to contributing to the forums
when I can.

Rosie Borba
Cool Florist and Gifts
Cool, CA. USA

Shop owner of Gift and Flowers, we sell jewelry and gifts. I need a
little stress relief and feel this would be a good way for me to go.
I love trying new things. Thank, Rosie

Laurie Simpson
Columbus, OH. USA

I’m fairly new to jewelry making and metal working and I have become
facinated with foldforming,corregation and chainmail. I don’t do
well with soldering so these are natural fit for me. I like natural,
organic forms and am trying to acheive these in metal.

Paul Beetham
DWD
Lake Wylie, S.C. USA

I have been working in the jewelry field for ten years. Prior to that
I have a sixteen year background in welding and ironworking.

Currently attending The Revere Academy for graduate classes;
completed the Jewelry Technician Program at Revere in August 2009.
Started Bright Light Designs in 2008, it began as a fashion jewelry

Benjamin Michael Wilson
Bexley, NSW. Australia, 2207

I am a 30 year old aspiring jeweller. I live in Sydney and am
currently doing Certificate 3 Jewellery Manufacture at Enmore TAFE.
I am in love with this trade and desperately want to gain an
apprenticeship! I currently manage a Harvey Norman franchise and am
good at my job, but I don’t love it. I am married and have 1 child
with another in the oven as you read this! I also love being a dad.

Anyone in Sydney with a small chance of taking on an apprentice
should contact me. I can start right away and will be a valuable
addition to any workshop. I can show work completed, drawings and
designs, and even demonstrate saw piercing, filing, soldering,
melting/casting if desired.

either way, I look forward to being a contributing member to the
forum.

Benjamin
