Britta Lynn Kauppila is a Twin Cities and Duluth based jewelry designer and metalsmith with northern Minnesota roots. 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 a high-end Minneapolis custom jewelry designer where she honed her skills with hand fabrication and stone settings.
Britta continues to work in new materials and mediums to grow technically and conceptually. She creates all her designs in her home studio in Duluth, MN and keeps a studio and show space at the Northrup King Building in the Arts District of NorthEast Minneapolis. When Britta is not making Jewelry she is playing in the woods and lakes of Minnesota.
