Hi, I’m Sheridan. I’ve been a jeweller for nigh on 30 years and
certainly have heard of Orchid forums but only just decided to come
in and see what’s happening.
Over the years I’ve made a mixture of commission work, fashion
jewellery and installation artwork. Most of my commission work is
now done via CAD. However I still hand make the artwork so this
keeps me busy!

I’ve been in the IT industry for the last 20 years and like IT I’m
teaching myself how to be a jewelry designer and maker.
I’m looking at retiring so that I can go to work making jewelry.
I’ve also played guitar for the last 40 years and I guess it’s just
another part of the creative person that I am.

I am a hobbyist jeweler who is largely self-taught. I am still
learning, having just delved into the soldering part of
metalsmithing in the past couple of years. Prior to that I was doing
chain maille and wire weaving, and prior to that making jewelery out
of wire and beads. Now I enjoy incorpora ting all of those elements
into my work.
I am relativly new to jewellery making but have taught myself
faceting and looking forward to setting my own stones thought this
forum would be a wealth of tips.
