Instructor Biography:

Sage Kochavi

Sage Kochavi has been making jewelry since the mid-90's and has taught metalsmithing in the Boston area for 12 years. She especially enjoys helping beginning jewelry students discover the pleasure of working with metal. After years working full time as a jeweler, selling her designs in shops across the country, and in multiple other capacities in the field, she primarily makes interactive sculpture. She still thinks nothing compares to the satisfaction of a well-executed solder joint.
