THE HOSTS

Shana Kai & Terri Brush



Meet Terri ...



Terri is an internationally known jewelry instructor, published artist, author, and friend. She has worked as a hairdresser for over 35 years! If she wasn't doing hair she was creating whimsical hand sculpted figurines for many gift companies across the world. This passion took her all over the United States and to China as a licensing agent for papier mache artists. 
She has been hosting creative jewelry and art retreats for the last 10 years with huge success!  In addition to teaching out of her home studio, Terri has been hauling soldering irons and torches around the country and Europe teaching her personal style and techniques of soldering as she blazed her own path in the soldering world. 


Terri is quiet, kind and gracious - no one is a stranger in her classroom! She is a wonderful and patient teacher as she teaches from her heart, holding nothing back as she passes along her knowledge and experience with open arms! 
In 2014 Terri joined Carolyn Peeler as a co-founder and partner in the LaDolce Vita Retreat.  Terri says it was such a lifetime of memories! Through 2016, she and Carolyn hosted multiple retreats together in Italy and this started her LOVE for Italy.


Terri lives, with her husband, in a small town in Washington state in between Seattle and Portland. She has two grown children, and two very spoiled and loved dogs!
