Earrings will all be different, based off of what students choose to design with.
About the instructor
Kathleen recently opened up her own jewelry store with her daughter Sophie in Downtown Portsmouth called Rage Gems & Jewelry. Kathleen began making jewelry back in the early 2000s as she had two children under the age of two and she needed a hobby to help keep her sane. After many failed attempts at crafts such as crochet, mosaics, etc. she found that jewelry making was a perfect fit and hasn't stopped since. She lived in Brooklyn NY for eight years and when there, she opened up a bead store and taught classes. Her jewelry has been seen on many celebrities during those years. It's her form of therapy and highly recommends it to anyone with rage issues.
