- jewelry making
I would like to introduce you all to The Green Gorilla Studios. We are Don and Lynette Driver and we make gemstome and precious metal jewelry. By day I am a hairstylist and Don is a Union Sheet Metal worker. Our Jewlery craft began from a hobby collecting rocks, to us both taking metalsmithing and lapidary classes at our local community college. Don loves to work with stone, and does all of our lapidary work. He slabs, trims, and polishes all of the gemstones by hand. I am our metalsmith, I hand forge all of the stone settings out of sterling silver for each piece. I also make earrings, rings and bracelets with sterling silver and copper only.
