Patti Bullard
Wired Up Beads
Southlake, TX. USA

I have always loved and collected tools. After learning to make
jewelry, I realized that there was a need for tools that are made
specifically for making jewelry. This led to the fun task of
developing a unique line of tools named Wubbers (named after my
business Wired Up Beads, or WUB for short). In addition, Wired Up
Beads is the inspiration for Wired up Beads University (WUB U),
which is a teaching studio located in Southlake, Texas. I enjoy
silversmithing, lampworking, glass fusing, and beading. Most of all,
I love interacting, sharing, and collaborating with other jewelry

Emily A Garner
DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park
Loncoln, MA. USA

As part of my position at the DeCordova Museum I run a metals and
jewelry studio. Many Faculty members have suggested this site as a
good resource.

Candace White
Walnut, CA. USA

I am very interested in working with metals but have questions as to
where to get items need to do some of the ideas that I have.

Yleana A Martinez
Watertown, MA. USA

Beginning jeweler studying primarily at Metalwerx in Waltham, MA. I
currently work in copper and silver, with an appreciation for the
artistry of Mexican silversmiths and the work of Georg Jensen and
other Scandinavian metalsmiths. I’m also an avid collector of
antique glass and metal buttons, and am constantly trying to think of
ways to use these tiny works of art as jewelry.

Jonna Faulkner
Designs by Jonna
La Jolla, CA. USA

Hi, I’m Jonna, and I’m delighted to become a part of the Ganoksin
network. I’ve been working with metal for about 12 years now. My
primary medium is metal clay but I also love fabrication. I’ve been
lucky to have many fine teachers with Deb Jemmott in San Diego, CA,
being my mentor in this area. I look forward to learning from you all
and hope I’ll be able to make a contribution as well.

Gail P Rappa
Jewelry artist
Tuscarora, Nevada. USA

Hello All- It has been a long time since I have had a chance to be in
touch with the Orchid Forums and I have missed them. I so appreciate
all that I have learned in the past from all the generous
participants and look forward to sharing what I can as well. I am
back teaching at the local college and made visiting Ganoksin one of
my student’s web assignments. They all brought in great articles that
got me hooked again-Thanks again for this great forum for
jewelers-especially those of us in isolated areas- Talk soon! GAIL
