Jeri Bee, Lake Oswego silversmith and poet, believes everyone has a creative voice in one medium or another, and that fostering creativity is vital to navigating the journey of life.

Jeri’s practical approach is reflected in her fresh, minimalistic, poetry and nature-inspired jewelry as well as her welcoming down-to-earth instruction style. She’s can be found instructing beginners in the basics of silversmithing, and designing hand-crafted jewelry from new, reclaimed and upcycled materials, that is both stunning and affordable for all.

What I believe to be true:

Community is the bedrock of our lives
Everyone is inherently creative
Sharing, learning, and making mistakes together is essential to growth
Protecting our planet is everyone's responsibility
Throw love and kindness at it, whatever it is, and it's sure to stick
