“FVCC’s jewelry program is providing me the skills and knowledge I need to transfer to a four-year college or enter immediately into the workforce. FVCC’s program is the only jewelry program in Montana that provides us with the opportunity to experience and utilize the entire process of creating jewelry. We don’t have to send our ideas somewhere else to get the finished products. We can do it all ourselves, and that is invaluable for us.” -Nathanial Gilham
