Cary, NC. USA
I’m a retired Federal civil service employee. Shortly before
retiring, I got interested in making jewelry and subsequent to
retiring, enrolled in several short jewelry classes (at New Approach,
and Rio Grande, e.g.). Unfortunately, not long after retirement, my
husband was diagnosed with ALS and I spent the last four years caring
for him. He recently passed away and I’ve just relocated from Oregon
to North Carolina and hope to begin exploring jewelry again. At this
stage/age in my life, I doubt I will ever become a professional but
the subject interests me greatly and I’m looking forward to taking
advantage of the wisdom in the forum.
Easthampton, MA. USA
Worked with glass for 20 years then shifted to aluminum and steel.
Just started working with pmc. Pretty soon I’ll probably be using
all these materials together…Anyway, my Artist’s Statement is on
the wall of my studio. It’s written in crayon and says, ‘I Like to
Make Things’. That about says it all.

Goldsmith for the last 25 years. Interested in learning new
techniques, about new tools and equipment.
Umatilla, Oregon. USA
I am a Fire Chief and Paramedic trapped in an artists body, or so I
like to believe. I am an accomplished woodcarver and
metalworker/fabricator. I really want to become a mixed media
artisan specializing in silver/copper objects and gem faceting.
Kennesaw, GA. USA
Beverly Schnell graduated from the School for American Crafts at
Rochester Institute of Technology in 1995 with a Bachelors of Fine
Arts in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Design. Her work reflects the
sensual organic forms found in nature. She incorporates the use of
curves from the body and other natural elements to inspire her
passion for designing and creating jewelry. Color, shape and texture
combine to give a unique yet fashionable look.
