Jewelry Manufacturing Position

Information & Application.

Thank You for considering working at Judie Gumm Designs.  We are a small boutique jewelry company located in the birch covered hills just outside Fairbanks, Alaska in the town of Ester which is just about 5 miles from the University of Alaska and another 5 miles to downtown Fairbanks. The topography is rolling hills situated in a broad river valley and yes, on a clear day you can see Denali! If you love the outdoors and all the hiking, skiing, biking, canoeing, snowshoeing, hunting, birding…. well, you get the picture.

Working for a small business has many advantages and the main one is getting to work on a number of different projects each day. Judie’s line varies between 250 and 300 designs and she consistently designs new pieces every year.We are looking for people who not only want to make jewelry but are also on speaking terms with a computer. We encourage independent thinking and creativity. We are also an equal opportunity employer.

Many people who have come to work with us have had no experience with jewelry making. They have been engineers, medical students and biologists. But they did have one thing in common, they loved to create and we trained them to create jewelry.

We are very safety conscious and work hard to maintain a clean and safe environment. We uphold all of OSHA standards and are constantly striving to find the safest products to use in the manufacturing of the jewelry. Everyone is thoroughly trained in the use of all equipment and chemicals used in our shop.
