Schooling? for making & designing jewelry
by Angela Alderman
(Middletown, Pa, United States)
My name is Angie and I've been considering starting a Jewelry based small business for a few years now. I'm finally at the point of do this now or quit talking about it and I'm trying to figure out how to choose the school that would best suit my needs. I thought for the longest that the Gemilogical Institute of America made the most sense, but now I'm thinking "Wait a minute I work primarily with beads."
So my question is this: Do you know of any schools that focus on the skills I would need to start my own business designing, making, and selling my own jewelry with the long term goal of opening a bead store with classes on making jewelry and helping others do what I've done.
Thank you so much,
