One of the advantages to MJSA membership can be found right here on this website: Access to the MJSA Member Pages. These special sections of the site offer exclusive content and cost-saving resources, all aimed at ensuring our members can make the best jewelry possible while keeping expenses in check. The pages are located throughout the site and are identified by the key icon at left.
If you come to a Member Page, a screen will appear asking for a login code and password, which MJSA assigns to all members upon joining. (Members can also click at any time on the "Member Login" link in the top right corner of the site.) Once you enter the code and password, you will enjoy unlimited access to all features of the site.
In our archive, members can find a wealth of articles and videos about the latest tools, techniques, and technologies for jewelry makers and designers—from casting tips and CAD/CAM case studies to bench projects. Some were originally published in MJSA Journal and MJSA Custom Jeweler; others are online exclusives.
Checklists for tool and equipment purchases, glossaries of terms for components and chain styles, a guide to gem treatments... the MJSA Buyer’s Tips section offers all this and more, to ensure MJSA members can make the best purchasing decisions possible.
From selecting subcontractors to develop a good working relationship with them, these articles in the MJSA Guide to Subcontrators will help you to ensure there are no surprises when a contracted job is done.
The collectible Tech Sheets offer insights into all aspects of jewelry making and design—and MJSA members can download a PDFs of every sheet, free of charge.
Currently, MJSA offers online guides to the latest federal and state legislation regarding cadmium content in children’s jewelry and lead content in all jewelry, as well as a guide to complying with the Kimberley Process and the System of Warranties.
