Name and Location:
Ann Aas. I’m originally from Mankato, now I live in Chanhassen.
What do you make?
Enamel Jewelry. Enamel is glass fused to metal. I use a torch and the immersion method to create the component parts for my jewelry designs.
How did you get started? Who inspired you?
I took an enameling class about 6 years ago. I was hooked. I continue to take online classes to learn new techniques and enameling finishes.
What is your favorite part of what you do?
I love playing with fire!
What is the least favorite part of your maker process?
What is a day in your life like?
I get up and work at my torch almost every morning for a few hours. Then it could be anything from photography, painting displays, ordering parts, working on my website, applying to shows and of course putting the jewelry together. Most weekends we can be found at art fairs in the five state area.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not busy making?
Walking/Training our yellow lab, Maddie. Hanging out with my husband. Movies. Music and Food Trucks.
