Instructor Bio: Rochelle Gaukel is a Chilliwack, British Columbia-based soldering artist who got started in this medium 15 years ago on a trip to Italy. From that moment on, she was hooked and wanted to learn more. As she took as many classes on this medium as she could, she soaked up all of the knowledge and practice of this art. She loves creating with vintage bits and pieces and her creations always have that time worn appearance. While on the hunt for items to include in her soldered art and jewelry pieces, these always include antique papers, vintage photos, and rhinestones and jewels from old neglected jewelry. The best part of the hunt is finding something that speaks to her heart and begs her to tell a story creating with it.
