handmade in minnesota
I love to make and I love to teach! I have a BFA in Metals & Jewelry from Cal State Long Beach and have been making and teaching jewelry classes since 2010.
I have also been a board member of the Metal Arts Society of Southern California since 2014, serving as Fundraising Chair,
Vice President, and currently President! Although we’re based in SoCal, we have members all over the country!
I offer unique custom pieces, as well as ready to ship articles that are usually inspired by a few of my other passions which include aviation, space exploration, midcentury modern and retro futuristic design...and cats!
jewelry making & metalsmithing Classes
From 2010 until 2020 (thanks Covid!!), I had the honor of teaching several popular jewelry making workshops on the grounds of the world famous Sawdust Festival in Laguna Beach, CA. If you’re in the area, check them out!
After over a decade of teaching in my native SoCal, I am super excited to continue offering jewelry making classes at my new home studio in Fridley, Minnesota! Our house is less than a 15 minute drive from the incredible North East Minneapolis Arts District in a much quieter suburban setting, where parking is easy and the house-cats are plentiful.
