Andrea Haukedal

Hello! My name is Andrea Haukedal. Here is my true story.

From humble beginnings…

Several years ago now, I attended a beginner’s silversmithing class with my Dad and it all grew from there…

While I was attending university, I worked part time at a shop specializing in jeweller’s tools and supplies. I found that I had an affinity for the art of metalsmithing and was not afraid to try things on my own. I was soon a bench jeweller and I dropped out of school (sorry Mom…) but I have not looked back since. While I was honing my skills as a bench jeweller, I also tackled instructing silversmithing classes, which I now love. I have been teaching for six years.

I recently quit my day job as a bench jeweller. It gave me the skills and knowledge of traditional techniques I needed but did not leave much room for creativity. Now I spend my days teaching classes and making jewellery pieces in my well-stocked studio, which I have been adding to over the years.

This is my creative outlet; it is an expression of my consciousness and many of my pieces have a sense of the offbeat. Thank you for visiting and please enjoy!
