Jewelry designer working on third career
This is an example of how becoming a jewelry designer can happen to and for anyone at anytime in their life. Here is a story of a woman who was a nurse by profession, a stylist and image consultant, and then became a jewelry designer. Our resources here are designed to help such individuals achieve their desires to design jewelry. Even if they have never been involved in the jewelry business in any form ever before.
