Sandra W Martin
Manteo, NC. USA
I have been learning about and making jewelry for approximately the
past five years and really getting serious in the past three.
Currently I am employed full time as a high school counselor but
will be retiring June 30 of this year. My goal is to begin selling
my pieces. My preference is to work with silver and other metals. I
especially like to use silver and copper together. I am really
looking forward to learning from all of the wonderful artists who
frequent this flight as well as to share of my own as my

Albuquerque, NM. USA
I am a trained sculptor with a new jewelry business on Etsy,
amycliser. . I also sell jewelry supplies for Rio Grande, so I am
lucky enough to work with customers as well as a great staff.
New York, NY. USA
I am a former academic (Ph. D. in linguistics) and academic (art and
rare books) librarian. I am now a jewelry designer/artist/artisan.
My designs are inspired by the shape, color and texture of natural
stones and guided by a deep appreciation of beauty drawn from a long
study of art history (BA). Starting with the qualities of the
precious and semi-precious stones themselves, I highlight their
natural beauty with hand-fabricated gold, gold filled and silver
settings, created by various wire techniques.

Glorieta, United States
Greetings, I currently am enrolled at the local college in the
Jewelry and Metal Arts program. I have taken several classes through
Rio Grande and Santa Fe Jeweler. I don’t have a plan for where I am
going but am enjoying learning every aspect of creating and making
my own pieces. I love to read what others are doing and learn from
their advice or trial and error.
