Monica Weber-Butler

BA (Hons)

Monica has been an eclectic designer/maker/teacher for over 25 years, specialising in Metal Clay in 2003, and teaching Metal Clay internationally since 2011.  She studied Art & Design at the University of Westminster (London), holds the Rio Grande PMC Certifiication, the Diploma in Precious Metal Clay Proficiency from the Mid Cornwall School of Jewellery, a City & Guilds Teaching Certificate and an Honours Degree in Early Childhood Studies from the University of Plymouth. 

Her jewellery making career started in 2003, when she became fascinated by Precious Metal Clay.  Monica immersed herself in the exploration of this new material and its compatibility with traditional beading and silversmithing techniques.  Each of her pieces represents a journey of discovery, and her designs are influenced by symbolic ethnic art.  In order to share her passion for jewellery making with the wider community, Monica established the Eclectic School of Jewellery and Design in December 2003.
