Hi, My name is Cheryl Olson. I am a retired librarian who took up the
study of gemology and jewelry arts after I left work. I like the
organic nature of your site, it grows and changes rather than
stagnates. Keep ut the good work. Cheryl

Jacquelne A Nantier-Hopewell
Manassas, VA. USA

I am an upstart reseller and designer. I am profoundly allergic to
metal (gold, silver, nickel etc) and so I started searching for
fashion jewelry I could wear and the only thing I could wear was
Platinum. At 1,800.00 plus and ounce that got too expensive. So then
I started researching Palladium, and found this is a metal I am not
reactive too. However, no one really carries much of it retail. So I
decided to create a boutique Palladium fashion jewelry design
business with my son who is a design student. I hope to start
selling my designs within the next two to four months.

I’m a metalsmith from Finland. I use traditional craft skills to
create jewelry, sculptures, utility items, business gifts, etc. I
like to work with bronze, brass, silver… well, ALL kinds of
metals! :smiley:

I also perform skilled cleaning and repair work on jewelry,
chandeliers and other metal objects, as well as manufacture replicas
of missing metal parts in chests of drawers, cupboard locks,
chandeliers, etc.
