Springfield, Missouri. USA
I’m currently working on starting my own business, getting certified
through JAA as a bench jeweler. I have 4 years experience in jewelry
design, jewelry repair, and lapidary. I do commissioned pieces,
through word of mouth, out of my home workshop. Business cards,
website, business license are in process. Other than 2 continuing
Edu. classes at a local community college I’m mostly a self taught
artist. However, I do take time out of each day to attend “my
school”= studying as much as I can; books, hands on projects, etc.
Luckily family & friends get many prototypes
Los Angeles, CA. USA
I make sterling silver jewelry, lost wax and fabricated. I attended
Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles. I’m looking forward to exploring
this amazing site.
I’m considering starting my own jewlery line and would like to learn
from people who are already producing their own so my learning curve
can be quicker and less painful.
