Beth Fellows
Leicester, NC. USA

I’ve been making wire wrapped jewelry for 4+ years. Took one class,
bought many books, learned most of what I do from trial & error. Have
enjoyed Orchid forums for many years & have learned so very much
from the generosity of others. Thanks to Hanuman for making this site

Jan-Peter van Wermeskerken
Atelier tuft
Hokutoshi, Yamanashi-ken. Japan

atelier tuft is a small company on the slopes of the Yatsugatake
mountain range in the Yamanashi prefecture in Japan. Together with
my wife we create a wide range of products: natural dyed textiles,
leather dyed hand woven bags, wallets etc and jewelery. On my part I
create one of a kind jewelery using mainly Niobium, Argentium Silver
and other materials.

Originally trained as a biologist I started to work for a jewelry
company when I came to Japan. After ten years I decided it was time
to quit and to become independent. I joined forces with my wife and
are now running our small atelier/shop.

Paul Hornbrook

Hello All, I enjoy cutting and carving stone and wood. I also like
to pound, twist and bend metal. I’m hoping to expand and share what
knowledge I have.

Lisa Dienst-Thomas
Lisa’s Pieces
Batavia, IL. USA

My name is Lisa and I have been designing, handcrafting and selling
jewelry at Art Shows and in stores for over twenty years under the
business name Lisa’s Pieces. My jewelry is fun, unique and
definitely makes a statement. I use an eclectic range of materials
but my current favorites are sterling silver, fine silver and fused
glass. I love that even if I try I can never get two pieces exactly
alike with the fused glass. I love tools and new techniques for
using them especially those involving adding texture and dimension
to my work. I currently have a studio at Water Street Studio’s in
Batavia. I teach classes in wirework, beginners metals work, fused
glass and various other classes to adults and children at Water
Street Studios. I am PMC certified level one.

I have a jewelry shop at Thanks. Lisa
