Hi Akintagleo,

Welcome to the Engraving Forum firstly.
I am unable to advise about lessons in and around Zurich, BUT,I would still recommend
Roland Baptiste Esq. to you also ;
http://rbaptiste.com/Site/R.Baptiste...r-Graveur.html

He is an engraver with an undisputed reputation.And also a great teacher of engraving in my personal opinion.

Hi Subbu,

Welcome to the Engraving Forum.

This is an ideal set to purchase;

http://www.airgraver.com/Hand_Engrav...graving%20Sets

Foot Control Classic or NitroG20™ engraving set w/ sharpener

I would advise the classic airgraver as you do jewellery.You can later if you wish upgrade to a palmcontrol.

I would also read up lots and get some books;
http://www.engravingschool.com/


Books - http://www.airgraver.com/Hand_Engrav...rview.htm#BOOK

Once you have the set you are ready to engrave.

All the best
