Ashburn, VA. USA
I started in metal arts about 20 years ago through living history
activities. I am the co-founder of LaBelle Compagnie a group
dedicated to recreating the household of a 14c.English knight
(www.labelle.org). Since everything had to be made by hand I decided
to delve into making belts, purses and other dress accessories
including, of course, jewelry. In short, I quickly became addicted to
the study of late medieval/early renaissance metalworking techniques.
I have little formal training, and am essentially self-taught; some
of my work can be seen in the book “1381 The Peel Affinity” a book by
the company (I am the stylishly red-coated Sir Brian). Although no
longer active in the group I retain my love for the period’s
craftsmanship and aesthetic. Now, however, I am working on expanding
my horizons. Very Best Regards, BB

I am an 88 year old jeweler, still practicing, and preparing my
gaughter to continue the business. she is quite capable in
management, and can do the neccessary repairs to support sales. I
thoroughly enjoy spending long hours watching your program. There
are so many different trails a young person can take in the jewelry
business today, and you are best way I have seen for them to make
that decision and make the right move. Thanks for being here.
