Jackson Barker |Nerang|0408 227 537|

My name is Jackson Barker. I am 19 years old and I have a passion for making jewellery. I have completed a few basic courses at Tafe QLD, Brisbane and Gold Coast, but I want to learn more. I am looking for an apprenticeship with someone who is willing to teach me more of the finer details of jewellery making. I am a quick learner, have an eye for detail and am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to making pieces, which is why I am looking for a great teacher who can help develop my skills whilst helping you in your business. I have made a few pieces of my own, I have a good understanding of making simple jewellery pieces. If curious I have an instagram where you will be able to see the jewellery I have already made (@jacksjewellerymaking)


Claire Thomas |VIC|0414 169 521|

Hello, my name is Claire! I picked up jewellery making almost a year ago now, immediately falling in love with the craft. Learning as much as I could online, and growing my toolkit, I progressed from working with bead to silversmithing from my bedroom desk. I recently completed Melboune Polytechnic's "Introductory Jewellery" course, and am incredibly eager to undertake their Cert III "Jewellery Manufacture" Apprenticeship next March. If any Melbourne based jewellers are interested in taking on an apprentice, I would love nothing more than to learn and grow into a jewellery making career with your guidance.

I have an instagram page (@404pieces) where photos of my projects are visible. My email is if you would like a copy of my resume. I hope to hear from you soon.

Macarena Ramirez |Perth WA|0456 487 996 |

My name is Macarena, and I'm from Chile. I arrived in Australia a couple of weeks ago. About a year and a half ago, I started practicing the craft of jewellery making, and I must say it has truly fascinated me. I would love to dedicate myself to this art for a lifetime. During this time I attended an academy where I learned various basic and advanced techniques to develop my skills in the field. I have a knowledge of casting, soldering, box and invisible setting, reticulation, stamping, sheet and wire fabrication, embossing, among others. I have experience working with silver, bronze and various gemstones.

I consider myself a highly creative and meticulous person, paying close attention to details and possessing strong manual skills.

I would like to continue learning and growing in this beautiful craft, and I believe collaborating with a great jeweller like yourself would be incredible. I've been eager to start my career as an assistant to a jeweller I admire, and your job posting is precisely what I've been searching for, as my main goal now is to acquire knowledge.

I am currently in Perth, but I'm very willing to relocate to pursue my artistic growth.

    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.

    Marie-Lauren Romano0434 581 788|

    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.
