Jessie Wylie began making jewelry in high school and has pursued this passion with great enthusiasm ever since! She earned her BFA in Metalsmithing and Jewelry from the University of Oregon, and continues to explore her love for wearable art through teaching, working on the board for the Seattle Metals Guild and continual experimentation with materials. Jessie is also a graphic designer who enjoys using a combination of photography, line work and pattern, which is reflected in her metal work. Her jewelry can be found at Gilt jewelry boutique in Portland.

Dana Cassara began practicing the art of silversmithing at North Seattle Community College in 1992. She discovered her love for the craft after returning to school to pursue a teaching degree with a focus in social studies. She graduated from the University of Washington in 1998 with a B.A. in Comparative History of Ideas as well as Interdisciplinary Arts, because she just couldn't stay out of the art department. She has been teaching jewelry design since 1999 and loves what she does. View all posts by Dana
