Originally from Oregon with a stop in Wyoming, Deryn Mentock got to Texas as fast as she could where she wrangles a husband, two grown young men and a nice collection of cowboy boots. She’s been passionate about art, especially jewelry design, for as long as she can remember. When she’s not traveling to teach or treasure hunting, she’s in the studio designing pieces that combine metal, gemstones and unique, well-loved treasures in unexpected ways. It’s important to her that each piece is infused with color, texture and her own spirit of faith and creativity. She’s a nationally-recognized author and instructor who loves sharing with her students, not only instruction in technique and design, but also insight into her creative process. She also enjoys teaching online workshops from her "Jewelry Works" site. Her work includes design work done for Michaels craft stores, nationally. Her book, The Jewelry Makers Design Book, was released in 2014. Her jewelry and artwork has been featured in numerous books and magazines, including a feature article, and cover, for Belle Armoire Jewelry.
