Cindy Pankopf ’s 15 year career as a graphic designer is the foundation of her current profession as a jewelry designer / instructor / author. She began with designing and teaching seed beading classes then expanded into metal clay. She is proud to be one of only 7 certified Master Art Clay Silver Instructors in North America, and enjoys creating new designs that will expand her students’ skills and combine different materials.
Cindy teaches classes of her own designs in metal clay and beading regularly. Her goal is to broaden the scope of her techniques and continue designing, and sharing with others. She enjoys instructing locally at her store Cindy Pankopf’s Creative Place in Santa Ana, California and nationally at the Bead and Button Show and other venues.
