Tracy Meng | Sydney | 0426 658 521| meng.cui.tracy@gmail.com

My name is Tracy. I started as a graphic designer, graduated from one of the top universities in Shanghai. Since then, I became very interested in Jewellery industry and I’ve started studying it myself, and through various courses. Throughout the last year, I have been actively learning and practicing work with 3D design software (Rhinoceros), to help me express my ideas better. I have also designed and produced various small jewellery pieces like rings and ear rings. I can do sawing, soldering, filing and so on. I am very interested in jewellery industry, and I would really appreciate you giving me an opportunity to explore this profession.

Please feel free to contact me if you require any further information. I would be very happy to work with you.

Hello, I am an 18 year old in The Gap, Brisbane with a passion for jewellery that graduated high school this year, and am looking for someone who might be able to take me as an apprentice! I have learnt basic skills at The Goldsmith's School in Bardon, and am always willing and excited to listen and learn about new things. I have a current first aid certificate and Certificate II Skills For Work, as well as other skills and qualifications that I can share if you would like to know.

Scarlett Edgar | Melbourne | 0400 892 852|  scarlett.edgar@outlook.com

I'm a motivated 26yo who is passionate about developing a career in designing and handcrafting fine jewellery.

I’ve been making silver jewellery for 18 months. I work with silver sheet and wire, although more recently I have worked with wax as well. I am competent at hand sawing, filing, soldering, and polishing. I've had tutoring from my mother, Victoria Edgar (creative jeweller/silversmith/sculptor), as well as utilising online resources and short courses at Melbourne Polytechnic.

I am resourceful, resilient and diligent. I believe I’ll make a great apprentice because I’m eager to grow my skills, I thrive in a hands-on role and I appreciate feedback. I am a team player, easy to get along with, a fast learner, hardworking and always up for a challenge.

I believe an apprenticeship is the first step of many and I look forward to working in an industry where you continue to learn and grow your skills, there is no limit to what you can know.

I'd love to show you pictures of my work, please ask me!

Marie-Lauren Romano0434 581 788| marie-lauren.romano@hotmail.com

I would like to quickly introduce myself; my name is Marie-Lauren Romano, a 30-something living in Melbourne with a dream of becoming a jeweller. For the past 7 years I have been working as a Marketing Manager across a number of brands, but always wondered what working as a full-time creative would feel like. The time during COVID lockdown gave me a lot to think about, and the push to give my passion a real shot. After all there is no time like the present! I guess it took some soul-searching and trying a corporate career to come back to my roots as an artist and designer.

I am eager to work under a master jeweller to supplement the teaching I will take part in at Melbourne Polytechnic. I want to be mentored and gather as much direction from a jeweller who has been in the industry for multiple decades. Perfecting the foundational skills such as;

  • Basic skills - strong at cleaning up intricate fine pieces, soldering, polishing, filing flat and consistent, hallmarking etc
  • Understanding the nuances between metals;
  • Learning about precious gemstones utilised in designs;
  • Hand forging pieces;
  • CAD design;
  • Re-sizing;
  • Gem Setting.

I look forward to hearing from you soon and would happily share a jeweller CV.
