My name is Moira. I am an artist-educator living in Providence, Rhode Island. I teach the wildly popular Bling Bling jewelry classes in local middle schools and am working this summer spreading the art love via Rhode Island’s public libraries.
I grew up in southwestern Pennsylvania and completely randomly moved to Providence a few years ago for, well, no real reason at all. A few months after I moved here, I saw a sign in a coffee shop that said, “Are you creative? Do you like beads? Do you like kids?”
I thought, “Sure!” I called the number, went in for an interview, and three days later, I was teaching my very first jewelry-making class to a room full of excited middle schoolers. I’ve never looked back!
