Robert B Wiegand
Kitchener, On. Canada
I have been a jeweler for 23 years and a graduate gemologist for 14
years. Gems and jewelery are my addiction as well as tools!
Hastings, MI. USA
Beginning jewelry maker. I prefer silver wire work and am moving
into soldering and engraving/enamelling. I’d like to take some
classes locally and maybe sell some of my work for extra cash.
I have been making jewelry for about 7 years and have been working
in metal for the past year and a half. I sell my jewelry locally at
2 different stores. I really enjoy this creative outlet and have so
many questions as I continue to learn!
Catherine Lanzl Designs
Encinitas, CA. USA
I am a jewelry wax carver of more than 35 years. I am a graduate
gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America in resident
course class of 1977. I have invested in Gemvision’s Matrix
programming, training, and the Revo 540B mill, and it’s training. I
have additionally taken intermediate to advanced Matrix program
training from the Falkner Institute, here in San Diego. I also enjoy
sculpting in earthenware clay and glazing my pieces in the Japanese
rapid fire style of Raku. I learned of the Orchid Forum from a dear
friend and colleague, and thought I should become a member.
I’m a jewellery designer based in Ireland. I handmake in sterling
silver mostly but am currently learning enamelling on copper and I
love it. I am hoping to spend a few months in California in the
spring/summer of 2011 doing some enamelling courses and some
sculptural welding courses (I would like to try enamelling on larger
than jewellery pieces as a result). Any suggestions would be
