Courtney Nicole Gray
The Creative Side Jewelry Academy of Austin
Austin, Texas. USA


I am a custom jeweler and metal smith out of Austin, Texas. I
specialize in custon engagement rings, wedding sets, sculptural
pendants and more. I began as a sculptor in steel and copper and
evolved into jewelry making. You can view my custom work online at

I recently founded and am presently building “the Creative Side
Academy of Austin”, a jewelry and metal school. We are based out of
my personal studio and have a great enviornment for learning and
many amazing craftsmen of the trade teaching workshops to the
public. We mainly hold weekend workshops that are more accessible to
out-of towners. Our classes include stone setting, casting,
soldering, design, etching, PMC, polymer clay, and much much more.
