Bio: I have made jewelry since I was very young. I began my formal art-metal education in high school. I refined my metal-work and artistic skills at the University of Wisconsin - Madison and at Madison Area Technical College. At this time, I was also a designer at the Jeweler's Workshop in Madison, Wisconsin. Several years ago, while exploring why my career as a lawyer wasn’t completely fulfulling, I realized I need to pursue my passion for art and design more seriously. I started using the cutting-edge medium of silver clay to make earrings, pendants, bracelets, charms, and neckpieces. Since becoming a certified artisan of silver and gold clay, I also have been teaching classes on jewelry design and my classes have been very well received.

Bio: Lauren first discovered her love for artistic textile and apparel design in early high school. She started spending many of her evenings at the local yarn shop where the shop owner and many other women taught her how to use fibers and color to express her ideas and creativity. Lauren decided to go to school for apparel design based on the passion she had developed for knitwear and trend research.
While in the Clothing Design Program at the University of Minnesota, Lauren further developed her construction skills and intensified her interest in textile anthropology through her research in historical and cultural apparel. She also spent time in New York City studying and learning among the designers. She ended up graduating with an Honor's Bachelor of Science in Clothing Design.
Lauren now teaches textile arts and works on her own line of apparel and accessories in Minneapolis. She lives with her husband and her little red dog.
