An interview with electronic jeweler Vernon Reed is presented. When asked where he learned his basic metal techniques, he says his learning involves asking people, reading books and experimenting. He began by creating custom gold work and electroform jewelry. His interest was influenced by a photograph of the electro-form work of Stanley Lechtzin. He considers the liquid crystal technology as the medium for making video jewelry. He also has a jewelry line made of titanium called Chromawear to support his passion.
