Educator jeweler and tool maven Kate Wolf has three loves: carving wax, designing tools and teaching. One is meditative and intuitive, the second exhilarating, and teaching … absolutely “divine.” Kate won MJSA’s Innovation Award for her Wolf Tools and Wolf Wax by Ferris and continues to develop and create new tools. She is a former Director of Production and master model-maker for the Franklin Mint, and holds a BFA in Metalsmithing and Jewelry from Tyler School of Art. In addition to designing her own line of silver and gold jewelry, Wolf has made master models for manufacturers and marketers such as Monet, Lenox, L.L. Bean, Disney and QVC. She teaches in workshops all over the U.S., Canada and her school in Portland, Maine.
