|Annika Quinn began making jewelry out of a necessity when she was unable to find what she was looking for in stores. Quinn’s work looks to empower wearers by offering an aesthetic quality and unique features. Self-described as old-school-meets-new-school, Quinn’s process for creating each piece is truly unique.
“I love Craft Lake City and the opportunities it gives local artists,” says Quinn. “It also gives people rad opportunities to learn a new craft and empowers them to create.” Participants will create a Viking-style brooch of jewelry using metalsmith techniques taught by Annika Quinn.
