The Susan E. Wood Jewelry Studio is available for use for a fee the days following your workshop should you like to continue practicing new skills or finish projects started in class. For more details or to schedule extra workdays, please contact Nancy Gardner, Jewelry Coordinator/Studio Manager.

NANZ AALUND’s wide ranging career as a jewelry designer, goldsmith, and educator, began in high school shop classes. After serving as a fine jewelry designer and marketing consultant for Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Tiffany & Co., Aalund taught jewelry and metals classes at the University of Washington and at the Art Institute in Seattle, earning a Masters of Fine Art (MFA/Metals) and a Masters of Education/College and Technical Teaching Curriculum (CTTC).

Some of Aalund's many professional jewelry design awards include an AGTA Spectrum Award, two Gemmy’s Awards, two Platinum Guild International Awards, two Saul Bell Award Finalists, and two DeBeers Diamond’s Today Awards. Her work has been in exhibitions both national and international since the 1980s. She authored the 40 biographies for the book, Masters Gold, published by Lark Books in 2009 and served as technical author and associate editor for Art Jewelry Magazine. Nanz’s most recent publication, “A Jeweler’s Guide to Apprenticeship” for MJSA, received Silver Honors in the AM&P Excel Awards (a national book award) in 2018.
