Meet the Instructors
Eva Sherman began creating jewelry as a way to spend time with her daughters, but soon became hopelessly addicted. In 2005 she traded in her architectural career for the opportunity to become a full-time metalsmith, and launched Eva Sherman Designs in Cleveland, Ohio. Eva now happily spends most days in the studio creating, writing and teaching, but has been know to take her show on the road. She has discovered an affinity for working with wire and metals and prefers to design in an organic and unstructured style. Eva has authored two books on jewelry design: "Organic Wire & Metal Jewelry" and "Cool Copper Cuffs."
Debora Mauser is a self-taught jewelry artist working in mixed metals, stones and enamel. She is a nationally known instructor teaching at large venues, schools and bead stores. You can find her work in magazines like Step by Step Wire; Craft, Paper, Scissors; Enameling by F&W publishing, as well as online video and classes with Craftsy and Craftcast. She is a certified Wubbers Instructor, and a former member of Nunn Design Team. Her classes are low key but packed with important techniques designed to advance your jewelry knowledge.
