About the Jeweler
|My name is Jason and as you can probably tell I enjoy making jewelry. I have been selling my jewelry online since 2006. I make the jewelry, take the photos and program the web site. So if you see anything that needs to be changed or updated, please feel free to contact me.
I've studied metal working since 1999, and I've taken college courses in metals and jewelry at both Virginia Commonwealth University and Radford University.
I specifically started making chainmaille in 2001 because it was simple and required very few tools. I started on a larger scale. I completed a shirt, a vest, several belts and several other items in steel, but I found I could also make copper bracelets much faster, and there were more people interested in them.
The money made from those first projects went into buying better materials and supplies and now my material of choice is sterling silver, although I also have occasionally worked with gold. Also I've been able to expand past chanmaille to more traditional jewelry and also work with cabochons and faceted gemstones.
I still work a "Day job" and consider jewelry a sort of side project. Business has not been consistent enough for me to rely on it as a sole source of income. Luckily though I only work part time, so I have more time to work on the jewelry and the website.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or see any errors with the site.
