Shari A Both

A Seattle native,I have been designing jewelry in the Pacific
Northwest since 2000. My designs are graceful, textured, and blend
shaped metal, wire and gems into unique pieces of jewelry.

I live in Seattle with husband, two children and my rescued
Greyhound Ella.

I am always interested in growing my knowledge of all aspects of the
jewelry industry and I think this is a wonderful resource.

Brooklyn, NY, USA

I am a returning member, making jewelry again, and missing contact
with kindred souls. I am attending my first holiday sale very soon,
and have been thinking about all the helpful I found on
Orchid quite a while ago. It’s nice to be back! Gail Middleton

Daniel Abushakra

I’m 27 years old with seven years steady bench experience and have a
world of learning to do to perfect my craft.

Mikaila Ann Kalinowski
Lewis and Clark College
San Francisco, CA. USA

I love fabrications! Mostly I make jewelry and small boxes. I have
been an apprentice to two wonderful Bay Area jewelers and have taken
a number of classes. I am looking to set up a new apprenticeship in
Portland, OR where I go to school. I am also looking for a place to
rent studio space/bench time in Portland, OR. If you have
suggestions/connections let me know! It is so appreciated!

Garland, TX. USA


My name is Sherri Glover. I really enjoy making jewelry. I have only
been making jewelry for little over a year but I Love It. I am
trying to absorb so much. I am really trying to get out there and
show others what I am so proud of doing. It is an uphill struggle
but I am still excited.

Pamela Timm
Palm Harbor, FL. USA

I am a novice jewelry maker. I have taken classes from James Carter
(jewelry making and cloisonne). I have also taken classes from Rocio
Bearer (lampworking) and Marilyn Peraza (sculptural lampworking). My
goal is to grow and develop as an artist and to be able to combine
these three arts that I enjoy practicing.
