I am just starting out as a jeweler, having completed the
certificate program at my local junior college and looking for
further certification after I get my degrees in Business Marketing
and Studio Art Sculpture.

Interested hobbiest with next step to create a business. Some
lapidary experience - many years ago - with sliver smithing more
recently. Minor stone setting, and forming experience. Medium
intended would be silver, PMC, and general design. Wish to create a
training center to work with disabled youth to assist them in
finding their creative gifts and then assist them in marketing their
product and create a brand highlighting the sustainability of the
concept. Use “Free Trade” concepts and criteria to ensure the
individual artisans-in-training receive fair compensation for their
efforts a nd creations. Hope to source raw materials, beads and
gemstones from suppliers that too embrace Fair Trade or Beyond Fair

I have been interested in making jewelry for some time now, I
usually use natural materials. I would like to learn more about the
craft especially working with metals.
