Jeff, a business owner and jewelry designer, describes the challenges of his job, what he likes most, his key decisions, how difficult getting into the industry is, and work-life balance. Because he went through the traditional apprenticeship system, he was able to study and mentor under someone who has been working in the business for 20 years, but this meant that he learned the process first and the creative aspect came later.
Jewelers and precious stone and metal workers design, manufacture, and sell jewelry. They also adjust, repair, and appraise gems and jewelry.
