Put-in-bay, Ohio. USA

My passion is jewelry! I have made jewelry since i was 13 years old.
I own, operate, design and set all the jewelry at my seasonal retail
store. The outdoor shop is on Put-in-Bay a small island in lake erie
5 miles north of the ohio mainland. My father lovingly cuts almost
every stone i set and he specializes in complex inlays that are
magical. My mother crochets and knits metal textile components for
our pieces that is soft and fluid. I am recently expanding into
goldsmithing and i have strong moral beliefs about diamonds. I plan
to only set australian, canadian, or U.S. stones. I travel directly
to mines all over the world and hand pick out the rough my father
cuts. I love so many aspects of the jewelry industry especially the
people and look forward to this forum.

relatively new to silver jewellery making. After attending evening
classes have invested in a modest bench set up. Made my parents
golden wedding rings, which was a delight. wanting to use more mixed
metals in my designs

Anne Cunningham-Galloway
Gosport, Hampshire. UK

I have had a love affair with jewellery all my life but thought that
it was only trained artists that could produce these wonderful
pieces that I had drooled over in the jeweller’s shop window for so
many years. I took an Art CLay workshop after seeing it at a craft
fair, and realized that I could make small pieces at home without
much equiptment. Books then educated me further and I learned to
solder and pierce and bend using sterling silver. In the last year,
I have so enjoyed creating small silver pieces, and gained such
gratification from the compliments from friends and family. The jour
ney has begun, although the destination is a long way off. It is
very exciting.

Hamilton Niven Macmillan
Randburg, Gauteng. South Africa

I am currently in full-time employment as an IT Manager, I recently
became involved in jewellery training under a Jeweller who has a
fantastic partime course, I am working only in silver at this time. I
am hoping that this will become more than a hobby and will
eventually lead to a new career.
