Terri has a B.S in Fashion Merchandising and Design from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and spent a number of years in the fashion world on both the design and manufacturing sides of the business. After many years of being a stay-at-home-Mom, Terri decided to head back to the drawing board and resume classes. She got side tracked along the way by the exciting new world of Precious Metal Clay. Always a lover of jewelry, she immediately recognized how easily her design skills could merge with the properties of metal clay and her jewelry career was off and running. Now a certified metal clay artist, her jewelry has branched out in several directions to include chain maille, dichroic glass and traditional metal work.
