Peg Gyldenege
Wild Hair Studio
Puyallup, WA. USA

My name is Peg Gyldenege, I live in the pacific northwest and have
moss between my toes. I have been metalsmithing since the early 90’s.
I adore Silver and Copper and metal clay,enamel,resin,glass and
beads. I work in all of them and refuse to choose a favorite medium.
I have been teaching classe s for about 14 years and have met some
delightful folks. I am currently the membership chairman for Seattle
Metals Guild and 7 years ago created and maintain a local chapter for
the National PMC guild. I am excited to be a part of this social
network Cheers

Judy Wilkins
Youngs Cove, New Brunswick. Canada

I make beaded jewelry at present and sell in two different shops-one
is a co-op of crafters in a gift shop in a tourist information
center. The other is a consignment store. I work hours in both places
on a voluntary basis. I could sell in more places, but, I just don’t
have the time to do more production. I recently took a silversmithing
course in Florida and now wish to get into it. I am looking for
recommendations for a Canadian supplier. Your site was recommended to
me by my silversmithing instructor.

Hi again, My wife Hannelore and I have been working with fine gold +
silver handmade jewelry since 1975. Hannelore an award winning a
German-trained goldsmith now working with galleries and mostly
retired in the US.

I buy one-of-a-kind gems from around the world for jewelry designers
/ metalsmiths doing unique limited production work. I also am happy
to offer (free) advice to anyone just starting out in handmade
jewelry marketing.
