About the instructor, Michele Throne
Michele’s first dip into metalsmithing started with a high school class. She then picked it back up after getting her BFA at Florida State University. She’s been a full time jeweler for 11 years, and has been teaching art since 1998 and metalsmithing since 2012. She has taught workshops in Estes Park, Boulder Metalsmithing Association, and now at Silver Peak Studio.
Her deep love and appreciation for everything outdoors and love for people inspire her to create jewelry focused on nature and the human experience.
