Amie Preston of Oigi Design makes unique handmade and handcrafted jewelry - wearable art.
Part of that dream and passion is to pass on her knowledge when teaching silversmith classes. “I love to share the experience of working with fire and metal! When a student takes a class I hope they walk away with more than just knowledge, I hope they walk away with their own OIGI experience.” OIGI, pronounced oh-gee, is the acronym for Oh-I-Get-It! It's that moment when you put your hand to your forehead and say “Oh, I Get It”! Sometimes that moment is life changing, a realization, an epiphany when you feel you’ve found what you want to do, what you're meant to do. Some only have to put hand to forehead, others needed a gentle tap and others; well... you get it. Sometimes it takes a big push to change directions, and it's worth it! moment.
