Lewton-Brain's Writing at the Ganoksin Project

Skip to Lewton-Brain's Articles List / Search the Ganoksin Web Site
This page has links organized by subject to book extracts and articles published at the Ganoksin Project. The Ganoksin Project is a free educational site for the world’s jewelers. Begun by Dr. Hanuman Aspler in 1996 and built collaboratively with Charles Lewton-Brain, it now has the largest jewelry/metals oriented content on the Web, with up to 22,000 unique visitors a day, 4 million a year, and visitors staying for an average 20 pages. Lewton-Brain has over 700 pages of his writing there. This writing is what got the project rolling at the beginning, most of it listed on this page. Click here for a Ganoksin Project history. The site's Orchid mailing list, a discussion group for professional and technical issues for jewelers, has over 8,500 professional members worldwide. The Orchid list emails are archived and searchable on the site, providing an incredible source of information for jewelers. Various authors have book extracts there besides Lewton-Brain: Alan Revere, Tim McCreight, Erhard Brepohl, Leon Hornstein, Richard Huge, Sandra Smith, Brad Simon and others. Thousands of aspiring and professional goldsmiths have benefited from the information at the Ganoksin Project. Its goals include increasing information exchange, challenging traditional secrecy in the field and helping jewelers and goldsmiths globally. It is a full time job for two people, editing the Orchid mailing list, adding to and building the site. Please help support this special Global information exchange project for jewelers with a financial donation! And check out the site!
