Want to create without limits? Jewellery artists rely on their taste, style and eye for detail – but often do not have the tools or understanding needed to execute their best ideas! Working with raw materials, from precious metals to gems, glass, objects trouvees, and even other jewellery components, a skilled precious metal artist can produce whatever they have in mind.
JDMIS Precious Metal Arts programme gives you the skills, ideas and experience to create without limits.
