Tracy Gonzales lives in idyllic Northern California where she works for TierraCast, manufacturer of high-quality jewelry making components. She has a degree in art and a widely varied art and design background, and her role as Jewelry Designer and Product Educator at TierraCast has given her broad jewelry making experience, plus the constant opportunity to come up with clear, engaging and fun ways to share that knowledge in different forums.
She enjoys the challenge of finding new and beautiful ways to use a wide range of components, materials, and techniques. She has had jewelry projects published in numerous magazines, and teaches for TierraCast regularly at trade shows and events. She looks forward to sharing exciting techniques and projects with students at the 2016 Bead&Button Show.
