Rushville, USA

My company name is LedgeRock. I do customized jewelry. I started in
faceting stones, found out that you needed gold and silver smithing
skills to become profitable, learned these skills, took the GIA
gemologist course, passed it, and now am also a retired
teacher (Latin and Mythology) and am giving more time to jewelry
makingl. I like to make individualized jewelry.

I always have jewlery questions.

Kaye L Lewis
Cambridge, UK

Im a busy mother to four children. I have my own business in
jewellery making from the fashion to precious metals. I am currently
doing City and Guilds level 3 in silversmithing and loving it. I
have plans to learn bead making in glass and hopefully resin.

I am a Pagan Priestess and take my inspiration from our Mother
Earth, the Moon, the Sun and regeneration of the wheel of life :o)

I am passionate about jewellery and have loved jewellery since being
a small child. I prefer jewellery that says something about the
wearer I encourage individuality. Im not a fan of massed produced
jewellery and I love the ‘hand crafted’ look, the quirky look and Im
a great fan of self expression.

Just starting on the metals side of jewelry. Focusing on cabochons
of opals, chrysoprase, and lapis lazuli. Trying to learn the best

to the exotics.

Hi - I’m new to the forum and jewelry making. I’m just starting to

Tara Hutchinson
San Antonio, TX. USA

I am a 32YO ex-Army MP who lost my right leg above the knee in
Baghdad on Valentines Day 2006. I have been struggling with what to
do with my life when a therapist of mine suggested I try something
to do with my hands for improving my fine motor control. I decided
to try beading, which quickly turned to wirewrapping and eventually
ended up in metalsmithing. I LOVE it, and I spend 8-10 hours a day
at my bench, working on creating some sort of an inventory for this
business to start out with. I have taken 2 workshops on
metalworking, but have had no formal education (other than art
classes in college)
