About the Instructors


Screen Shot 2014-08-14 at 6.31.46 PMFull-time crafters Janina Arias and Patricia Peralta are the makers of Soul Flower – a Filipino brand of handmade bohemian accessories. They have been friends since high school and have been crafting handmade jewelry since they were little. Seeing that they shared a common interest in beads, colorful patterns and prints they decided to turn their hobby into a brand in mid 2010. Their mission as a craft business is not merely to produce, but more so to inspire an artisan culture and spread the spirit of creativity and expression. Dedicated to this purpose, they are always in search of ways on how to improve their craft. Their most recent venture is silversmithing.  Certainly, these ladies never tire of searching for new things to tinker with!
