Retired aerospace engineer. My hobby is jewelry design using
conventional and non-conventional techniques (such as etching, laser
cutting, reverse electro plating etc.). I am very much interested to
learn new processes in jewelry fabrication.

Tara Mattia
Apex, NC. USA

Hello! I started making jewelry at the end of 2011 with micro-wire
wrapping and a year later started taking metalsmithing classes. I’ve
completely fallen in love with it and am currently setting up an
at-home metal studio so as to have more time to devote to learning.

Annette Ouwehand
Hoofddorp, Netherlands

Hello everybody, I’m 53 and only started recently with this new
hobby. But what a hobby! As I’m still a beginner I’m hoping to
improve my skills and find my own style. Due to rheumatism I can not
work everyday and some techniques will allways be beyond me but
there is so much fun in the things I am learning!

Andy S Hendricks
