This site contains pictures of jewelry and metalwork made by J. Dirk Iglehart (JDI).   I am a retired physician, living in the Boston, Massachusetts area.  I started my exploration of metalwork by taking continuing education courses at North Bennett Street School, the oldest crafts school in the United States, and located in Boston's North End.  I continued with weekly lessons while still working.  Now, I go to my studio at the Artisan's Asylum in Somerville, Massachusetts everyday, and work on improving my technique and building my inventory of pieces to show and sell.  

The site is evolving; currently it is intended for browsing only.  In the future, I hope to enable online buying....we'll see.  Please contact me for more information about anything that catches your eye.  You can email me at
