Skills to Offer:

I started working in polymer clay in 2007. That year I saved to buy metal clay equipment. In 2008 I started working in all the different metal clays on the market. I traveled around the country taking classes from different master metal clay instructors learning everything I could. In 2011 I apprenticed under a jeweler from my local town for the year. I learned many basic solder skills and repair (fixing broken chains, polishing, sizing rings, fixing rivets earrings, creating a custom designs from sketches) then I moved an hour away and studied under another jewelry designer for the last 6 months there I learned how to create bezels, build designs from scratch, how to apply texture to metals using the rolling mill and hand tools with flex shaft as well as how to clean up castings.
I have many skills to offer, I worked in all metal clays as well as traditional silver, gold, rose gold, copper and bronze I am a quick learner, have an eye for detail and design, self motivated, and I work quick. I have skills with traditional photography as well as Photoshop and Illustrator Adobe programs.

Description of Apprenticeship:

I am looking for a teacher who wants to share the skills they have perfected over the years. I want to learn how to set stones, carve wax, learn how to use the CAD programs for jewelry design, learn how to cast. help improving my skills on the laser,

I want to learn just about anything and everything I can in a lifetime. I am willing to move, if there is a future for permanent position after internship.
