Handmade Creations by Metalsmith and Art Teacher Katherine Wise

The Story Behind Wise Handmade Jewelry

Growing up I was constantly drawing, painting, and creating anything and everything I could. I loved making art, figuring out how to put things together, and building with my hands. When I went to college, I realized I wanted to share this love of art with my own students one day. Inspired by my parents who were both school teachers, my journey of becoming an art teacher began.

I started designing jewelry and opened Wise Handmade Jewelry in 2008 shortly after graduating from Penn State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education. In 2009 I became a Visual Arts teacher in a small town in northern Pennsylvania. For the next few years, my business grew and I would squeeze in as much jewelry making as possible in the evenings, on the weekends, and through the summer when I wasn’t preparing for the next school year. Having my own creative outlet has always fueled my enthusiasm about art and has made me a better teacher.

Now over ten years later, I am still creating jewelry and still teaching Art to kindergarten through 6th grade students. Over 4,000 jewelry sales and countless student artworks (and countless paint spills) later, I love art now more than ever. I am happiest when using my hands to turn raw elements from the earth like metal, rock, and clay into beautiful creations. I am so thrilled that I get to create one-of-a-kind designs while also teaching students to be in love with art.

Life Outside of Etsy

I am married to my amazing husband, Mike, who also just so happens to be an amazing artist and Art teacher. We often collaborate on projects and share ideas for our classrooms. I have two beautiful and lively sons. My oldest, Theo, just started kindergarten, and Sawyer, my youngest, just turned three. Most days you will find at least one of my boys sitting on my lap at the workbench “helping” create jewelry.

Life is definitely busier now than when I first started Wise Handmade Jewelry back in 2008. These days I squeeze in as much jewelry making as possible while dinner is cooking in the oven, after the boys go to bed at night, or during any spare moment I can find on the weekends. Even though life can sometimes feel like a juggling act between being a jewelry designer, being an art teacher, and all of the craziness of being a mom, I feel so fortunate for the success I have had on Etsy. I hope to keep sharing this love of creating with all of my Etsy supporters and with all of my art students for years to come.

Thank you so much for supporting Wise Handmade Jewelry for over a decade!
