Good evening! I am a gemmology student at George Brown College,
located in Toronto, Ontario. I am interested in pricing of gems and
precious stones mainly and trend forecasting of jewelry.
I’m very new to metalsmithing/jewelry making. Took a few courses in
college, and have had some private lessons as well. I love good
design and jewelry but know there’s so much I don’t know. I’m
looking forward to learning more!
Phoenix, Arizona. USA
I’m just a hobbyist.
Asheville, North Carolina. USA
I’m a mostly self taught silversmith working with sterling silver
and semi-precious I make every one of my pieces by hand,
most of them very labor intensive. My specialty is flawlessly woven
silver rope, which is a loop-in-loop textile technique that no
machine can duplicate.
I’m new to Asheville, as of July of 2014, though I’ve lived in North
Carolina since '97.
It’s a pleasure to meet all of you,
Opal miner/ cutter
