I am officially done with my year of study in the department of Jewelry + Metalsmithing at the Rhode Island School of Design.  It was an amazing 9 months and I learned so much.  Returning to school 15 years after graduating from college as the mom of a 1-year old gave me a real sense of focus that I lacked when I was a young twenty-something.  I managed to acquire so many new skills during my short time here thanks to all the amazing people at RISD. I can't wait to get back into the studio and begin making new work!
