Dubai Gold Souq

I am excited to announce that I will be heading off to Dubai on May 29th to sit, observe and learn as much as I can from expert diamond setters and goldsmiths! My supplier there is so nice and he has welcomed me to come and experience Indian/Middle Eastern style jewelry in his shop. The studio is tiny and jam packed with jewelers from India that have been trained for several years under their fathers and grandfathers…no one has had formal training at schools, like me 🙂 I hope to absorb as much as I can and ask many questions and have hopefully come back with some great experience, techniques, tips and tricks, and some new base pieces to mold!!

I will be away May 29th to July 5th. Once I am back I have a wedding to attend that week and should be back to work in full swing by July 12/13th.  I will have access to Internet daily so please feel free to contact me. I will be working on listing a few new items before I leave.
