I am a high school art teacher who serendipitously stumbled into a
one day jewelery making workshop. I was immediately mesmerized by
the processes and potential of working with silver. I am a keen
beginner who has become slightly obsessed and very distracted by
researching, designing and experiment ing with jewelery making.

I’ve only been making Jewellery since January 2011 but I really

items but for now I’m still bumbling through basics. Kathryn
