Julie Ann Kocur
Erie, PA. USA

My name is Julie. I am an accountant who started to collect
gemstones about 2 years ago. I found a website, the International
Gem Society, signed up and started to study their courses. I passed
the first exam with a 96%, I was sooo excited. I’ve been hesitant
about the second part, the gem id part, so that is waiting for me. I
joined a few groups on Facebook and met hundreds of wonderful people
in the gem business. I’ve learned a lot from them. I’ve been exposed
to designing, wire wrapping, and selling my stones. I’ve learned to
appreciate a good stone vs a commercially cut stone. I can’t decide
what I want to do. I have some great ideas in my head for jewelry
designs, but where I live, there aren’t many options to learn. It is
frustrating. Just looking to get to know others in the business who
can help me to learn more and to help me to decide which area I want
to pursue.

Debra L Pinciotti

I am a jewelry designer working with higher-end semi precious beads
on precious metals. I am currently getting back to work after a two
year absence. Excited to be back in the studio with new stones and
materials and new ideas.
