I am particularily interested in learning if anyone has
instructions for building a small personal sized spray etcher. I
took a class at the Mendocino Art center several years ago in which
we used one and I would like to try to make one. If anyone has
regarding this I would greatly appreciate hearing from

I am a goldsmith and jewellery designer, I have been working in the
South African jewellery industry for the last 3 years and have now
decided to work on my own. I am concentrating on contemporary
jewellery that has either a philosophical meaning or is making a
statement, (this is for my benefit) while still maintaining the
aesthetics of the piece (for the cutomers benefit).
I am a Graduate Gemologist from GIA Carlsbad, and have also done
Jewelery Design from the same institution. I have also taken some
jewelery manufacturing courses from Revere Academy in San Francisco.
I am a partner at Shaikha Jewellers in Karachi, Pakistan. It is a
family business that is about 60 years old. We specialize in custom
designed and completely hand made jewelery. We also have our own
