Phyllis Flora has been making jewelry for twenty years. Ten years ago, she chucked a life of crime (as a criminal defense attorney, that is), to pursue jewelry design and teaching full time. She has developed and taught hundreds of classes at her bead store outside Boston, and subsequently at her metalworking studio, pflora metal arts. She has recently relocated to North Carolina where she continues to pursue her jewelry design and is developing a curriculum of online classes. Phyllis delights when students run with the techniques they learn in class and go on to develop their own designs and techniques.
