I am very excited to be an instructor at Urban Metal Studio. I am also available to teach privately at your studio, and available to teach workshops throughout the year. My specialties are in general fabrication, enameling, chain (“crochet,” loop and loop) and fiber techniques, hammer setting, and soldering.

If the east valley is a little too far, I can wholeheartedly recommend learning metals and jewelry from John Tzelepis at Phoenix College. Visit the Phoenix College class schedule page to find open classes.


In addition to long-session classes in general fabrication and enameling, I offer the following specialty workshops:

  • “Soldering Without Tears”
  • Painting Enamel
  • Crackle Enamel
  • Woven Chains
  • Loop and Loop Chains
  • Hammer Setting for Cabochon Stones
  • Fiber Techniques in Metal
