Skills to Offer:

I have been studying jewelry and small metal work on and off over the past 5 years. I have taken classes through Humboldt State University and Portland Community College as well as teaching myself different techniques using tutorials. Over the years I have become proficient in soldering, fabrication, bezel making, stone setting, design, engraving, patinas, sawing, filing, drilling, sizing, finishing/polishing and general jewelry repair. I have worked with sterling silver,brass and copper. I am hard worker, good communicator and pay attention to detail.

Description of Apprenticeship:

It is my goal to become a professional full time bench jeweler, but at this point I still need a little more experience to get there. Some of the techniques I would like to learn as an apprentice are how to wax cast, how to flush set stones, prong stone setting, gain experience working with gold and anything else I can learn from you.
