Kara Hickey, A graduate of The New England School of Art and Design 1991, Illustration and Graphic Design. Also having a love for 3-dimensional art and jewelry, began to teach herself the art of silver smithing. After much trial and error, she took classes at the Decordova Museum and the Cambridge Center for Adult Education. It was at these places that she learned the basics and beyond of her craft. In 2012 Kara joined the LEXART Metalworkers guild and was an active member until 2020. During this time, she learned under the tutelage of an experienced member, the art of enameling. She furthered her exploration and education by taking a masters class at Metalwerx and has been enameling ever since. From 2017-2020 Kara taught enameling at LEXART and will be continuing her teaching at Metalwerx starting September, 2023. Currently she works form her studio and sells her jewelry at high end markets throughout the New England area.
