I will be attending the Santa Fe Symposium of Jewelry Manufacturing Technology this month to keep up with emerging technologies and insights in jewelry manufacturing! This year marks 40 years of my own experience in jewelry design and manufacturing and this conference keeps me current on emerging industry technologies.
Here is a look at a couple of pieces from my custom jewelry making past. I am particularly proud to have participated in the creation of a belt of Conchas presented to Eddie Bell, founder of the Santa Fe Symposium. A Concha is a typically a round decorative piece of metal seen on a western saddle and other horse equipment descended from the Spanish tradition.
I have presented research topics there 5 times so far and will contribute again. Making this Concha for Eddie’s belt remains a highlight.
