A year after finishing her training, she started conducting various classes on metal smithing and has had over 300 students since then.
Mai Evangelista is owner and metalsmith at Fake Alchemy, and is currently a silversmithing apprentice at Studio 925. She had her start at metal etching in one of Soul Flower Co.’s workshops in 2016.
