Faculty Profile: Karenna Maraj, Jewelry Designer
Jewelry artist Karenna Maraj will show you how to make stunning jewelry from precious metals. She is a wonderfully original designer who has been known to use bolts and washers to make her jewelry, too!
Karenna holds a degree in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and now runs her own jewelry making business, Karenna Maraj Jewelry.
Karenna will be showing and selling her jewelry at Arlington Open Studios in October, where you can see more of her stunning necklaces, earrings, bracelets and more.
If you’ve ever dreamed of making your own one-of-a-kind pieces, join Karenna’s next class at ACA!
In Making Metal Jewelry, you’ll learn the fundamentals of metalsmithing to create necklaces, earrings, bracelets, pins and more. You’ll lean to solder, saw, hammer, set stones, and create hollow forms to construct any form of jewelry you dream up. Beginners are welcome, and students with previous experience will work at their own pace, perfecting skills and learning new techniques.
Karenna’s “Bubble Bracelet” is reminiscent of the bubble foam along the beach at the ocean’s edge.
With our small classes and Karenna’s gentle one-on-one instruction, you won’t believe what you can create!
