Marla Mencher

I joined the Art League staff in 2014 as a jewelry instructor and am very excited to be here. I am A Fine Jewelry Artist with over 35 years experience in the Jewelry Field. My expertise is in all phases of metal fabrication (sterling, gold, copper, non-ferrous) including fine piecework, intricate soldering, and complex designing with precious and semi-precious stones. I have owned an operated 2 Fine Jewelry stores and presently consult and fabricate for several stores including my private clientele. I am also involved in the fine arts as an art teacher of oil painting and pastel at several High Schools and show my work in many galleries, including the Art League.

I love to teach and feel rewarded when my students produce their own unique jewelry pieces and finished artworks. My approach is through a step-by step-learning process, with practice exercises along the way . As a creative thinker, I am always looking for unique and different projects to stimulate my students’ growth, as well as my own.
