Orchid Members can now have an online presence within minutes of joining, and have access to resources that come from being part of a community of our size. We think you'll enjoy the difference!

It's easy to create a Blog. For example, you can share your jewelry-making techniques, pictures of your work, your design thoughts, discuss Art Shows you have participated in, or museums you have visited, just for starters. Jewelry Schools can cover events, classes and happenings within their facility. Businesses can use their Blog space as a repository of press releases, company announcements and provide their Staff with a chance to share their passion for their work with the outside world.
