About the Teacher: 

Lindsay Walker/Walker Jewelry

I began my career in metal work as a coppersmith for the Urban Electric Company in Charleston, SC, where I learned how to make custom lighting from sheet metal. Wanting to expand my metal working knowledge, I moved to Copenhagen Denmark and pursued a degree as a fine metals designer and learned the basics of gold smithing. For three years I practiced my jewelry making skills and learned about the process of design while collaborating and learning from some of the best design companies in Denmark.  After completing that education, I also studied sustainability and design and began to form a model for myself and my company, Walker Jewelry, which thoughtfully uses materials to best compliment the body through jewelry.

About the Teacher: 

Nicholas Constantinou Georgio  has had a love for metal and all of its potential since the age of thirteen, when he started riding/working on motorcycles with his friends and family. While in high school, one of Nick's buddies started attending a metal working trade school which then 'sparked' Nick's interest in metal manipulation. He began learning the basics of metal working in that friend's garage and continued doing so through high school. Once Nick was in college, he purchased his own MIG welder and his imagination took flight, fabricating motorcycles, building furniture, and even designing mobile retail spaces. Now Nick has over ten years of metal working under his belt and is constantly inspired by the challenge of making what does not exist yet. His company is called Rewind Stuff.
