The Jewelry Arts Institute
Brooklyn, NY. USA
I am a classically trained goldsmith.I was an apprentice to Robert
Kulicke at Kulicke-Stark in NYC. I subseguently owned and taught at
the Jewelry Arts Institute since 1987, until 2009, when I sold it to
Maria Markowitz. Now I am free to devote my time to my real love,
making jewelry, in my studio in NYC and in my studio at my second
home in Carlisle, Pa.
Standish, Michigan. USA
I was born in Ireland and spent most of my life over there because my
parents were missionaries in Ireland for 13 years. I’m an aspiring
jewelry artist/designer and have my Associates of Fine Arts. At
present, I’m self taught in all the jewelry techniques that I know
(primarily wire techniques, but I have recently started learning
soldering) and am trying to decide whether to get my BFA in Jewelry
Design/Metalsmithing, take some jewelry workshops, or try and find an
apprenticeship in order to learn the rest. I am addicted to all
things related to jewelry and gems and someday plan to also learn
Methuen, MA. USA
I love all sorts of jewelry making… on a constant learning
adventure. Currently, I am focused on silversmithing; although,
beading/bead weaving is my portable interest. I just purchased an
Smith acetylene/air system after using first a butane torch, then a
propane plumber’s torch. I love all the on this site!!!
Thank you to those who contribute!!!
