This website is an ongoing, ever growing, always under-construction website.  Within its pages, you’ll find lots of information that just might help you to solve a problem, advance your skills or inspire you.  I appreciate your visit and hope that you enjoy your time here.

My name is Nancy LT Hamilton (the LT is rumored to mean “Loose Tongue”!). I am a jeweler, educator, YouTuber, artist, writer and all around nutcase.  If you haven’t visited my YouTube Channel, you should.  There you’ll find over 90 videos on the craft of jewelry making.  Also, visit me on Facebook ( My business Facebook page), Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter for more current updates and tons of information.  Also, I have two videos for sale:  one project video:  The Riveted Portrait Pendant and one technique video at Craftsy: Prong Settings from Start to Finish.  Scroll down for more info!  I also publish (occasionally), a newsletter:  In the Studio with Nancy.  You can sign up for that, below, too! (Everything is happening somewhere else, it seem!)

Thanks for visiting!  Have fun and hope you learn something new.  Nancy


My Craftsy video is out!   It’s called Prong Settings from Start to Finish.  I cover three different types of prong settings – each one, progressively more technically difficult.  The settings are the simple prong setting, the simple basket setting and the traditional basket setting.  Click here or on the image to see visit my class at Craftsy. 

  Some examples of rings made with the settings covered in the video.

It was more work than I’ve done in a hundred years but, it was an amazing experience and the video is awesome!  Craftsy did a good job making me look good.  That’s a difficult job – as you can imagine!!!
