    About the instructor, Samantha Chang

    Samantha Chang is from Buffalo, NY and recently moved to Louisville, CO after spending ten years in Brooklyn. She's a multidisciplinary artist & jeweler who has studied various jewelry processes including beading, wire wrapping, pearl knotting, fabrication, wax carving, and most recently, welding! She taught her first jewelry making class when she was 16 and fell in love with sharing knowledge & techniques. 

    Samantha learned jewelry making through classes at local bead stores, lots of trial and error, and has taken metal fabrication classes at the Jewelry Arts Institute in Manhattan. She then was an apprentice for an independent jeweler in Brooklyn. Most recently, she was a bench jeweler at Catbird NYC before moving out to Colorado with her husband. Samantha now has a jewelry line that she sells on Etsy and in art festivals. 

    A few of Samantha's favorite this are: painting, drawing, and spending time with her dog and husband.
