Post Hello ppl

i am the new kid. :hat: i am a 17 year old, soon to graduate from high school and my goal is to be an all around jeweler (skills) and to specialize in hand engraving. i have no jewelry education... but that is what i have set my mind to, I have taken much into consideration and have made the decision to commit myself to the art of jewelry :yesnod:
overall i am here to learn from you, get some advice, and make some friends.
bye ppl

Smile Re: Hello ppl

Daniel,
Welcome to the forum. I see you live in the great state of Texas, and if your wish is to become a jeweler, do investigate the Paris College in Paris, Tx. They have one of the best schools in the country for this, and being a resident of the state your tuition should be very reasonable, much more so than a private jewelry school. It is widely recognised as having a very comprehensive four year curriculum leading to Batchelor's degree. I do not know if engraving is a subject per se, but they will teach you about gravers and sharpening when you learn stone setting.
Good luck,
Gailm
