Janice Hagey-Schmidt – Designer, Artist, Maker.
As a metalsmith with a background in graphic design, I create unique jewelry infusing pattern and typography into pieces that are hammered, forged and soldered, which blend into a fusion of modern and ancient aesthetic. In addition, being influenced by the natural world has not only led to emulating nature in many pieces, it has also formed the basis of my ecofriendly craftsmanship in which I use reclaimed precious metals for all of my work.
I have attended workshops at Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco; and Mendocino Art Center in Northern California. In addition, I also studied metal arts at California State University, Fullerton and Pasadena City College. I hold a B.A. in Studio Art from California State University, Fullerton and a Diploma in Package Design from Humber College in Toronto, Canada.
