Greenlawn, NY. USA

I have been making jewelry for over 20 years and always dreamed of
going into the jewelry business after retiring from the practice of
medicine. However, my plans have been somewhat derailed by the
development of arthritis in both hands. I have been looking into the
use of CAD/CAM systems to alleviate having to do Carving and
setting, that has now become painful and occasionally dangerous When
soldering. 3-D printing has recently caught my interest and I can
see great potential in using it in jewelry manufacturing. In 2008 I
went back to school to obtain my MBA from NYU in preparation for
entering the jewelry market. But, now I find myself standing on a
cliff not knowing whether I’m ready to jump or not.

Lakeview Terrace, CA. USA

I’m a creatively minded jack of all trades, or as my wife puts it: a
serial dabbler :wink: I’ve worked in both professional Theater, and
Music Production from both performance and technical production
standpoints, in addition to being a professional print designer, and
cook. really. I also have exten sive experience and knowledge with
Video Editing, Broadcast TV and film camera operation, small scale
agricultural farming, authentic Italian Pizza oven construction and
operation (dome brick oven masonry experience - with help from the
forum section of Fornobravo.com ;D).

I’m currently investigating jewelry making techniques and practices.

Treat others as you would like to be treated - And have a GREAT day!

You still have to do all the finishing and setting even with car and
3d printing. You should dressing and how some jewelers to do the
casting and finishing. You are the business person anyway. Cad is
fun. You would like it if you are good with a mouse
