Chrissy Jahnes finds great joy in making fun and unusual Art Jewelry and loves infusing that passion into her students. Her interest in jewelry making began with a metals class in Connecticut in the 80’s. She rekindled that interest with classes at The ArtsCenter with Fran Schultzberg in 2003. She has continued learning from some of the most talented jewelers in the area and nationally known jewelers through many classes at The ArtsCenter and other classes and workshops sponsored by the North Carolina Society of Goldsmiths, Pullen Arts Center in Raleigh and Warg Enamel and Tool Center in Scarborough, Maine. Chrissy is a member of the Chatham Artists Guild and the North Carolina Society of Goldsmiths. She has lived in Chatham County for 21 years.
