I have been making jewelry for just over a year now.

Two years ago I sold my video production company and spent those
past two years both transitioning to new management and learning to
make jewelry. With my jewerlry, I began with beading and
wire-wrapping and moved to metalsmithing about nine months ago. I
believe that I have found my next life! It is challenging,
frustration and exhilarating…sometimes all at the same time!

I built a website, but have found etsy.com to be more productive so
I have been focusing more attention toward that avenue as well as
wholesalers and boutique owners. I recently made my first
significant wholesale and consignment deal with a bead shop. Woo
Hoo!

I have found through the years that associating myself with
successful people helps me be successful so I have a blog which is
devoted to profiling the “best of the best” in jewelry designers. I
learn something from each person I “meet” online. The blog is:

I look forward to learning from all of you.

Brian Marrs
Vancouver, B.C. Canada

I am an amateur jewelry maker working mainly in silver and copper. I
have taken a few night school courses to improve and add to my
techniques. What I make I usually give to my wife, daughter, or son.
I enjoy experimenting with etching, patinas, etc. In my previous
life, before self-unemployment, I was a college English instructor.

Melissa Dawn Jones

I’m a fairly new jeweler, and working on starting a business. My
main influences are art nouveau and the graceful lines of times gone
by. I’m very interested in reproducing historical pieces.

Steve Mazzarella

I used to be an Orchid participant but dropped off when I found
myself reading and learning so much, it was actually cutting in to
my productive time! I own a mail order catalog selling spiritual
items including jewelry. I need the stimulation of Ganoksin again.
