Skills to Offer:

I have a diverse range of skills, as far as jewelry goes they are beginner.

Description of Apprenticeship:

I have a Bachelors Degree from the Maine College of Art in Graphic Design. My last year and half of school I became interested in Printmaking which played an important role in my work. After graduating a friend surprised me with an intro to jewelry/metalsmithing class that i thoroughly enjoyed. That was six years ago. For the past 2 years i have been acquiring tools and giving it some attention, never fully committing. I have been farming for the past 5 years...I am now committing myself to jewelry. I am fortunate to have guidance from a friend and master jeweler Katie Cleaver. I have much to learn and want to be fully absorbed, i feel it's the best way to learn. i have shown my work at Katie's once and sold two pieces. Because Farming is so intense during these summer months it has been a challenge for me to get in the studio. I am a hardworking, reliable, i pay attention to detail, comfortable with tools and torch, learn pretty quickly. I am looking for an apprenticeship with time to work on the side. Def. interested in moving. Currently working with brass, copper, nickel, and silver. Recently started introducing stones to my work. If this sparks interest to anyone be in touch, thanks!
