    Word doesn't like "jewelsmith".  It want's to change it to "jewel smith".  Should I ignore it.

    Bill Gates keeps trying to tell me how to write stuff when I use Microsoft Word.  *grin*  "blacksmith" is one word, so I'm not certain if jewelsmith can be to.

    I'm pretty certain that there is no such word as 'jewelsmith.'
    A smith, specifically, works with metal, a jeweller works with jewels, precious stones.  So, a goldsmith would make the setting and a jeweller would polish and cut the stone and set it.  Of course, a smith can also be a jeweller, but they are two different trades.
    I can't find jewelsmith in Oxford, nor can I find jewel-smith, and, because of the nature of the trades, any combination of jewel smith would be incorrect anyway.
    If you are referring to someone who makes jewellery, use the term we already have, a jeweller.

    if you like the construction jewelsmith, then you can just click on the 'add to dictionary' when the spell checker questions it.  btw wordsmith is usuallt spelt as 1 word.

    there's a lot of fluff over these sorts or words - on-line or online, week end or weekend, etc     different publications set different standards, and they change over time

    Professional jargon is often misread or misinterpreted by programs. If you KNOW that your use of the word(s) is correct in the context and application in which it is being used, then ignore the recommendation that it be separated. If you are unsure, ask someone who is a professional in the field what is the correct usage of the word, or to ascertain whether it's even a word at all.
