Having apprenticed under a master stone setter, Blaine Lewis spent a decade refining his bench skills with an upscale 100-year-old AGS firm. Because so many top jewelers helped Lewis throughout the years, he knows the importance of sharing his knowledge. He passes on his skills at the GRSTC and through his own New Approach School for Jewelers. He has been a guest lecturer for the Society of American Goldsmiths and a featured authority at numerous professional jewelry shows. His expanding video productions, available through GRS, have redefined what jewelry-making videos can be.
