meet angie!

We want you to get to know your teachers a bit more so we will be featuring each one in the coming weeks here on our blog! Without further ado, come get to know the darling Angie who will be teaching both of the spectacular jewelry classes at the Makerie.

Angie Olsgard, the creative maven behind Angie Star Jewelry, is influenced by the simple forms in nature, funky vintage items that time forgot, and by the study of ‘play therapy’ which encourages creativity. Her impeccable taste and sense of style is evident in every piece of jewelry found in her fabulous store. No wonder Angie Star Jewelry has been voted Best of Boulder 8 times (so far!).

We asked Angie a series of fun questions and here’s what she had to say. (We loved her answers!)

If you could start your own restaurant, what would it be?
Definitely cinnamon rolls & coffee shop! Only the best cinnamon rolls & homemade icing that made people crazy for them.... We'd all be silly happy on coffee and sugar!

Favorite thing to eat for breakfast.
Chicken noodle soup, but only in the winter. A lovely warm homespun way to start the day, then a full day of art!

Your true indulgence.
Is it silly to say chocolate? Hmm..... chocolate, and caramels, and coffee, oh my! Did someone say sweet tooth?

If you could give the world one piece of advice, what would it be?
Be kind to others. So much would be solved, if we all practiced unbending kindness to others.

If you could have a room full of any one thing, what would it be?
My daughter. She is the most precious happy entity to me. I would want a room full of her, laughing.

If you have to choose a movie title for your life story, what would that be?
"Sing a Little"
