Roberta Ann Weisenburg started her jewelry career as an apprentice to a goldsmith in 1981. She moved to San Francisco in 1984 and set up a studio that she maintained for over 28 years. She attended schools including GIA International, the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts, City College of San Francisco, Jewelry Studies International, The Enamel Society of Northern California and various workshops given through the Metal Arts Guild of the Bay Area.
In 1999, Roberta's life changed through learning the ancient craft of granulation - she fell in love with this technique and her 22k gold granulation work has been featured in the Lark book publication '500 Earrings'. In 2012 Roberta became an Argentium Certified Instructor of Argentium fusing techniques. She currently teaches classes for adults and high school students at the Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center in Makawao, Hawaii and also teaches privately. Roberta is continually inspired by the beauty of her surroundings and is grateful for being able to give back to the community through teaching. You can see her work in local exhibitions and galleries.
