Ed Retherford
Kokomo, USA

I have been in the jewelry business most of my life. Own a store in
Kokomo, Indiana. Make, repair, and sell jewelry and watches.

Janis Townsend
Erie, CO. USA

I love making metal jewelry, but am just getting started. I am
currently in my 3rd semester of jewelry/metal class at Frontrange
Community College in Longmont, Colorado. Initially, I learned to
create beaded jewelry in 2006, selling at local shows and festivals.
After much frustration in relying on so many vendors for various
materials, I decided it might be easier to have more control over my
work, and design with no limitations, which led me to working with
metals. I am working full-time on my metal jewelry designs, and once
I get a few product lines in place, I anticipate selling wholesale
to shops around the country.

Akash Lotan
Gazit, Israel

Namaste, I have been a member of the Orchid forum for a few years in
the past. At this time I live and work temporarily in Israel where I
grow up. During most of my working years I lived in India. I’m 42
years old and been a goldsmith for some 15 years.

Learning the skills on my own, my work is neither modern nor
mainstream in style. This forum is such a helpful source for
especially for the self taught.

Thank you all
Love and Light
