Charlotte began creating jewelry for personal enjoyment through metal fabrication about 12 years ago, while pursuing a corporate career. Once retired, she began to expand into metal clay jewelry, which quickly became her passion! It had all the joys of traditional metalsmithing, plus the almost immediate gratification of seeing her artistic vision translated into reality.
Charlotte was offered the opportunity to teach metal clay classes at the Craft Guild of Dallas, where she taught for almost 3 years before opening her own studio in the North Dallas Area, where she currently teaches.
A Senior Art Clay Certified Instructor in Metal Clay, she has also studied at the Sawtooth School for Visual Arts in Winston-Salem, the Art Clay World studios in Chicago, and Creative Side Academy in Austin.
