About The Instructor
Nicole Ringgold began silversmithing in 2011 in her small home-based studio. When she lost her home and studio in a wildfire in 2014, she took a leap to become a full time artist, leaving her twenty-year career in non-profit management. She is a self-taught silversmith who learned through a series of self-challenges, including 100 hand fabricated chains and 30 botanicals. She now teaches botanical silversmithing in her studio and around the globe.
