Description of Apprenticeship:

My name is Hilary and I have been experimenting in jewelry making from the early age of 12 yrs old when I received my first jewelry kit for Christmas. As I grew older I continued to fall in love with beads, worked in a bead shop, and grew my collection of stringing supplies, pliers, and hammers. I am now in my thirties, have taken multiple jewelry and multi-metal classes. The next step for me is to continue learning new techniques/methods from an advanced jeweler. I would like to create beautifully finished pieces to sell for an income. If it takes working for an artist in their studio, helping to create pieces for their sale, and even website work, I am willing to work diligently.
