We're Hiring: Part Time Bench Jeweler

Emilie Shapiro is looking for a bench jeweler to join their growing team. The ideal candidate has basic bench skills including the use of hand tools, sawing, flex shaft use, assembly, soldering and polishing. Wax carving experience is a plus but not necessary. We are looking for the right fit, not necessarily the most experienced and will train this person with our unique studio practices. The position will entail, but not limited to, cleaning castings, metal fabrication, assembly, soldering, arc welding, stone setting and polishing. The ideal candidate has a passion for handmade and is looking to learn and grow with the company long term. 

This is a part time position (minimum 2 days a week) with the opportunity to add on more days if needed and interested. This position is in person at our studio in Astoria and cannot be done remotely. Compensation based on experience. 

Emilie Shapiro Jewelry is a handmade jewelry company based in Astoria, Queens, NYC, just minutes from midtown Manhattan. Emilie’s collection features recycled metals and natural gemstones and is sold worldwide at galleries, small boutiques and museums and direct to retail through her website.
