My name is Lisa. I am the silversmith who creates the jewelry here at Mountainside Studio. I grew up with an art teacher mother and all types of art materials at my fingertips. My mother spoke a language of creativity and nature’s beauty. It is a language that has stayed with me all my years and feels very comfortable to me.
I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Art Education from Utah State University and taught High School jewelry for four years. I taught a community adult education jewelry cIass and have also had a handful of private students. I am no longer teaching for now.
I have moved on to making jewelry at a pace that has allowed me to raise my children, explore other hobbies, and adventure with my family. My husband and I make it a priority to get outside on the rivers, in the mountains and exploring the wilderness with our children.
For 24 years making jewelry has been a passion of mine. It has my life's experiences, adventures, sorrows, creative ramblings and love pounded, shaped and set within its designs. My soul delights in creating. I believe that certain jewelry pieces can hold sacred spaces and be symbolic for the maker and the wearer.
I am at a time in my life where I am able to increase my productivity and seek out meaningful ways to share my work locally and online. My Instagram page is @mountainsidestudio come follow along to see snippets of my life at home and in my studio.
