Deirdre Keough
Lurgan, Northern Ireland

Hi, I’m Deirdre, a Foundation Diploma (Art and Design) student at
the Southern Regional College in Lurgan in Northern Ireland. I’ve
only recently discovered Precious Metal Clay and am totally hoooked.
I hope to make a new career in jewellery design and will hopefully
be accepted for a BFA in Jewellery Design at Ulster University.
(Holding thumbs here). Other than that, I live on my own with my
English Cocker Spaniel, Honey, in a terraced house in Lurgan.

I have been in the jewelry business for around 37 years. Was in

store in the “old market” in Omaha Ne. for 35 years this month.
About half of what we do is custom. We try to sell mostly artist
made jewelry. Also all of my help are jewelers. i have 5 employees.

H Buysse
Montclair, VA. USA

I’m interested in healing properties of gemstones and making
pendants with I’m an outsider when it comes to jewelry
making and other forms of art, self-taught or self-learned from
experience. I’m not sure what I will be able to contribute here but
I’d love to learn all I can from you all.
