"I took a mindful metalsmithing class with Aja and it was one of my favorite metalsmithing classes ever! She taught me so many new techniques and was also an amazing yoga teacher. I bought one of her necklaces and it is gorgeous! I always get compliments on it."

Wow! Aja is one of the best teachers I’ve had the pleasure of being a student to. She is really patient and caters to every person’s individual needs.

Can’t wait until my next class!
