Turning Your Passion into a Business+Doing A Show+Designing Your Collection

So many people making jewelry call themselves designers, without so much as a second thought given to what makes a designer. And what exactly does a designer do?

The concept of what is good design and what is bad design is very subjective, but in this fast paced, highly interactive, fun and creative class you are going to learn first-hand some answers to these questions. You will learn the basics of designing a cohesive collection with some fun hands-on exercises. Also you will look at your jewelry with new eyes and see how you can improve your “designs” and become a more successful and thoughtful “designer.”

Marlene Richey, who is known for her business and marketing classes, will reveal another part of herself that most people don’t know. Her father was head of the art department at a couple major universities. Her uncle was head of the art department at Central Washington University. Between her father and uncle they published numerous books on art, design and art education. Marlene also majored in art and metalsmithing in college and did post-graduate work on Russian icons. Marlene grew up in an environment where at the dinner table “less is more”. Scandinavian design, Alvar Aalto and the post-modern movement were also common topics.


Marlene knows design and wants to help get your designs at the top!
