My Book!
And in case you haven't heard...

I wrote a book. It's all about how to solder. It's awesome, if I do say so myself and it comes with an instructional DVD right in the book.

My new teaching studio is up and running!


Dear Friends, Students and Customers:

 Have you heard? It's a dream come true and I am so excited to share it with you. Ever since I closed my bead store in 2008 I have been planning my next adventure. Now the time has come! I have opened a new teaching and event studio in South San Francisco CA.  


My new space will have all of the FUN, EVENTS and CLASSES of my former store without the day to day commitment of a full retail space.  


What's in store: 

  • A variety of jewelry making classes including beadwork, metalworking, metal clay, enameling and more.
  • Special event classes from nationally known instructors. 
  • Special events including Trunk Shows, FREE make & takes and demos. 
  • Open Studio nights so students can work on projects, use specialized jewelry equipment, hang out and be creative.  
 Sounds great, huh? I think so too! You can read more about my adventures planning my studio on my blog at this link.

Hammers are ready to go!
Bookmark it and check back often as I am scheduling more classes and events on a regular basis.
A word on parking...

My studio is in a great industrial complex that used to be an old train station. There is not much going on during the weekends, so the complex has graciously offered to let my customers park in the center parking block in the main lot. Please do not park in the spaces along the perimeter of the building unless they are marked Guest Parking, but the center block is fine.

The parking and complex is gated, but it will be open during party hours. If it happens to be closed, just use the call box. Scroll to my name and dial. I'll buzz you in.
