Committees are voluntary groups, formed by members in order to achieve certain goals.
To join this committee, contact the committee chairperson. See Rules and Policies#Committees for more information.


The jewelry and small metals department offers a large assortment of tools and equipment for a wide variety of jewelry making techniques. Many disciplines such as basic fabrication, enameling, wire wrapping, chasing, chainmail, metal clay and lost wax casting in bronze, silver, and gold are done here. Using the 3d fab’s resin printer and our induction casting machine, end-to-end production can all be achieved at DMS. A general safety orientation is required, and committee meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month if you would like to get more involved.


  • Maintain the order, organization, safety, cleanliness, and utility of the jewelry and small metals tools.
  • Establish safety guidelines for use of tools and equipment.
  • Create necessary training materials and certifications that allow makers to effectively and safely use the various pieces of equipment.
