and devoted to contemplation and prayer, in work and in life.
A little about me, my name is Doug Napier and I started JewelryMonk.com a few years back as a way of paying forward the vast jewelry knowledge I have accumulated over 35 years in the jewelry business. Over those years, I have traveled all over the world, focusing on making jewelry in a manufacturing setting, and I am experienced in all facets of jewelry making from bench jeweler and technical model-making, to production troubleshooting and Computer Design (CAD). Along my journey, I have learned many tips and tricks, and am more than happy to pass along anything I have learned. (I can’t take it with me). I believe I have been given a great gift when it comes to making jewelry, and I would like to be a good steward and pass it along to anyone who is hungry and wants to learn.
