GREENSBORO, N.C. – Jake Wosinski is not a typical jeweler.
“I make wearable art,” Wosinski said. “My grandfather did it and it had to be the 1940-50s when he started.”
He honors his grandfather with the name of his business, Jacob Raymond Custom Jewelry, that he operates in a historical building in downtown Greensboro.
Most of what he knows from making jewelry he's learned from actually doing it and his work is paying off winning national awards.
“Everything that I make is one of one,” Wosinksi said. “It always tends to be the most recent piece I made.”
The best part of his job is he never gets tired of it.
“I don’t work a day in my life,” Wosinski said.
