Candace Stern is a silversmith who has been making jewelry for years. Now she teaches at the Art and History Museums of Maitland in Studio 5. (Click here for more info.) I got a chance to check out the studio and got a lesson in silversmithing from Candace. We made a little silver ring and talked about mistakes. (They’re good!)

Studio 5 has been a jewelry-making studio for years and the main classes have been taught by Jim Hosner. Candace now teaches on Thursday nights.
