All levels welcome
ENAMELS AND COPPER INCLUDED, SILVER FOR PURCHASE.
This class will teach you a fun, fast way to bring vibrant color to your jewelry. Learn how to choose your supplies, prepare your metal, create your designs, run the enameling kiln and fire multiple layers of glass enamel. Make several charms during class, and then with this technique, and continue practicing during open studio hours.
Growing up in the Colorado mountains, my imagination, creativity, and resourcefulness were nurtured by my furniture designer father and graphic illustrator mother. Carefully constructing tiny one-staple-bound books, sculpting toilet paper food, and making microscopic doll clothes and accessories were my favorite childhood pastimes. Today, I find that jewelry design and construction fulfills my innate desire to create art which decorates and enhances the wearers' persona and personality that both travels (and packs) easily, and cultivates emotion and creativity that hopefully transitions over time. I obtained my BFA in Metal-smithing and Jewelry at the University of North Texas and now live in Jackson Hole, Wyoming where I work as a bench jeweler for J.C. Jewelers. I teach jewelry classes and workshops through the Art Association of Jackson Hole where I delight in passing along the craft as others have done for me. My own jewelry designs continue to unfold as I explore my style and preferences of materials. When I am not making jewelry, I rock climb, bicycle, hike, and dance.
