About the Instructor

Giana Galati has a background in many art forms but has primarily worked with metal for the past seven years. An apprenticeship under a fellow metalworker led to a continued education at American River and Sacramento City Colleges, and evolved into a jewelry line, Vivid Venus. Her unisex designs are marked by hard, geometric angles and edges with pieces made of substance and sophistication. An innate passion for tactful forming has led her to share her craft and knowledge.  You can find out more about her work at: http://www.vividvenus.com/
