For seven year old Sam’s school professional day, he chose to visit llyn strong fine jewelry!
He was so excited about coming, that he called his grandmother early to tell her the news. He even made his own bracelet ahead of time, so he could be wearing his design while he shadowed.
Sam was full of great questions and enthusiasm. He really made the morning a treat for all of us.
llyn and our goldsmith, Tanya, showed him the studio, 3D printer, casting machine, office and even the gemstone trays of things yet to be made. They taught him how to test gold, clean diamonds and polish metal. He even cleaned and polished his mother’s ring for her.
Lil’ Kate explained her computer renderings to him as well.
While touring the gallery, Sam found plenty of jewels he wanted to purchase (watch out Dad!).
All in all, it was a blast. We hope Sam learned a lot about our profession and maybe will want to join us again one day!
Thanks for coming in Sam! We can’t wait to see you again!
