Pewter Thread Braid Bash Class

Happy Spring from

Happy spring everyone!

I have finally made the leap from socks and shoes to sandals and I’m not going back!

It’s been a hot minute since my last blog:) This past winter was full of events and news I want to share. 

When I’m not teaching classes I’m a full time gold and silversmith specializing in Norwegian filigree inspired jewelry. This year was the kickoff for my first solo jewelry exhibition hosted by the Nordic Center in Duluth, MN titled “Hand of the Huldra”. This show features jewelry and adornment inspired by the Scandinavian myth of the forest huldra, a beautiful woman with a cow tail who would charm humans into living life forever inside a magic mountain. Many thanks to the mighty Alison Aune for getting my show featured on Minnesota Art Hounds! Extra special thanks go out to photographer/ videographer extraodinaire Aleksander Nordaas for allowing me the use of images from his beautiful “Huldra” book. This show runs from March 1st – April 27th. Check it out if you are in the area and stay tuned for a soon to be released video that features me taking you on a tour of the exhibition! Many thanks to everyone at the Nordic Center for this amazing opportunity to share my work.
