Britta Lynn Kauppila is a jewelry designer and metalsmith living in Duluth, MN with a show-space studio in the Arts District of NE Minneapolis. All designs are handmade with fire and hammer. She loves the relationship between the maker and the materials, where human hands manipulate and shape metal to become something very soft, delicate, but substantial. Britta graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth with a Bachelors in Art and concentrated in Jewelry and Metals. She worked as a goldsmith and design consultant for local Minneapolis design gallery where she honed her skills with hand fabrication and stone setting.
Britta continues to work in new materials and mediums to grow technically and conceptually. She creates all her designs in her Duluth workshop where she is open by appointment and travels to hold monthly events at her studio in the Northrup King Building in NE Minneapolis but is currently on maternity leave. Please sign up for Britta’s email list for news when she returns to custom work and Open Studio events. When Britta is not making jewelry she is playing in the woods and lakes of Minnesota with her little family.
