About the instructor: Shelley Claude, Jewellery Designer
“My pursuit of designing jewelry began in 2009. It was my love of jewelry and my background in fine arts that drove me to create my own wearable one of a kind pieces. After working in the corporate world for many years, I decided to make a career change and open up my own jewelry studio in downtown Flagstaff, AZ. My studio was a place where I was able to sell my wears and teach others about fabricating jewelry. Some of my previous students were looking for a new hobby, while others were interested in selling their own custom made pieces in galleries; every student’s motivation was inspiring and fuelled my passion to help them create.
I am currently visiting Whitehorse, Yukon with my two daughters. During my time here I will once again have the opportunity to create fine jewelry and teach my craft.”
