Stumbled over this site while looking for something else and it
seems like a very useful and good cause. Meaning that it can help
keep the art (and trade) going with new blood. Many of the tradesmen
that I have know over the years, have either passed on or have
retired from the trade due to age.
I have been in the business of making fine jewelery since since 1977
(both gem cutting and goldsmithing so I’ve gained a few bumps on the
head over the years. One thing I always preach is that you never
stop learning in this trade. My mentor of over 30 years was the late
John Rinker (for goldsmit hing). I hope that I may contribute
something of value to the cause somewhere along the journey.
