Meet your instructor, Debra Carus:

Local artist and goldsmith Debra Carus creates fine jewelry with gold, silver, precious gems and glass enamels. Drawing heavily upon her Norwegian heritage, she uses traditional jewelry methods like filigree (used in the Norwegian bunad jewelry called solje) in modern, updated pieces. She also favors Scandinavian motifs and mythology, incorporating stories and runelore into her custom work. Debra also uses Scandinavian gems and minerals, and loves to highlight her work with luminous transparent glass enamels reminiscent of Norwegian artists of the late 19th century.  Debra is a passionate teacher, sharing her methods with beginners to advanced professionals in her classes all over the Pacific Northwest.
