Lisa Tokunaga Tokunaga
Kita-ku, Osaka. Japan

I am a jewelry designer and currently sell my items on Etsy. I am
hoping to learn more about possibly having my own designs cast into
charms and network with other designers.

Duncan Hertert
Hillsboro, OR. USA

I enjoy gems and making jewelry. I look forward to learning from
other jewelers.

Happy New Year! I am subscribing anew after the holidays.

Happy to share a bench jeweler position in the Boston area with a
family-run, fine jewelry store.

Experienced bench skills in all repairs and custom work, stone
setting, work with all metals. CAD and laser welding is a plus. Full
time, salaried position.

Hope I can help someone in the local area!

Laura Michelle Niederhofer
Austin, Texas. USA

I am a self-taught, aspiring metalsmith. I’ve been crafting, beading,
and drawing for over 15 years. Currently, I’ve been experimenting
with copper and sterling silver for about 6 months. I have a modest
home studio with a beading table, jeweler’s bench, soldering station,
dremel flexshaft and 2 butane torches. I’m hoping to enroll in
jewelry classes at my local community college soon! Until then, it’s
just a lesson in trial and error.
