2019 JEWELRY ARTISTS
Mary gohman (map #118)
St. Cloud, MN
I use sterling silver and 14kt gold to fabricate and cast my work. Cast pieces are carved from wax, invested, and molten metal poured into the mold. I also like to use the natural forms of twigs, acorns, and lichens in my work. Fabricated pieces are cut and soldered, shaped, filed, polished and stones are set.

I hand fabricate my work using traditional metal working techniques, customized tools, and never cast as multiples. I use sterling silver, high karat golds, cut gemstones and natural freshwater pearls. I love deep textures and delicate design elements...florals are my favorite challenge! Every piece is one of a kind as no two flowers are ever alike.

St. Louis Park, MN
Nature inspired, self-taught jewelry designer and maker using various jewelry making techniques for over 30 years. For the last 10 years I have focused on free form one of kind bead weaving jewelry, bracelets, cuffs, necklaces, earrings, watch bands and brooches. I love the ancient weaving technique and the way the beads lock together to form magical patterns and the colors joyfully dance together to form a little piece of art

I started Working in Silver in 1977.I use natural gemstones that are individually selected. Using the stones with their shapes, colors, and patterns help to inspire my designs. One of a kind, one at a time.
brenna Klassen-Glanzer (map #107)
I use sheet silver and copper to create contemporary jewelry, drawing much of my inspiration from interesting forms in nature such as seeds, pods and shells. My work incorporates a variety of textures, combined metals and the use of hollow-form construction techniques in some pieces. It is a mixture organic natural forms and modern design, which gives the pieces an untamed yet elegant quality.
julie petit thomsen (map #52)
I am a freelance interior designer on her way to the end of her career looking for a creative outlet to keep the soul alive. I have been making jewelry for many years as a hobby but now I do hope to turn it into a full time business. I love experimenting with new mediums and design ideas to keep it interesting and to keep learning.
kate qualley peterson (map #101)
I hold a BS in art education and taught in the public schools before retiring. I became interested in metal clay in 2004. As someone who loved making hand built pottery and jewelry, it was a perfect fit. I started my business in 2005 and do art shows around the Midwest and teach classes in my home.

Susan Roskens is a glass jewelry artist living in Mankato MN. Her jewelry features real flowers artfully arranged and encased in glass. An avid gardener, Susan grows and presses her own flowers. She began working with stained glass 25 years ago and her passion for flowers gradually found its way into her glass work. Susan is most at peace in this world when she is creating with glass and flowers and is grateful for the opportunity to share her work with others.
miles schoen (map #93)
Jewelry designer Miles Schoen is intrigued by materials and design processes that blur the lines of traditional. Known for his elegant lines and simple design, Miles works in a medium long forgotten by our exceedingly “fast food” era; namely, silverware. Through his artistic eye and patient forming techniques, Miles draws out modern designs from these relics of the past. Testament to this transformed beauty shows in his spoon bowl earrings, fork tine necklaces, and salt & pepper shaker jewelry.

april witzke (map #17)
I comb the beaches of Lake Superior to find interesting stones and sea glass for my work, and I clean the beaches while I search for treasures, removing all trash I come across in an attempt to give back to the Lake that gives me so much joy. I combine the sea glass and stones that I find with genuine sterling silver to create one of a kind jewelry inspired by nature. All pieces are my original award winning designs. My jewelry aims to connect the soul to the great waters of Lake Superior!
Jean zerby (map #74)
St. Paul, MN
I make Artisan jewelry that I describe as Eclectic Urban Tribal. I use gorgeous stones and metal to frame them to their best advantage using various silversmith and metalwork skills, tools and techniques such as soldering, textures and cold connections. My work is a little industrial, a little vintage and a little contemporary.
