We are super excited to have two new interns with us for the summer. Nina and Robyn (pictured above left to right) are both Seattle-area natives, friends and sophomores at the Rhode Island School of Design. They will be working on a number of projects while they are with us, but they can't seem to get enough of making, so we are keeping them busy with lots of Electric Love ring production as well as Bound mirror wrapping starting next week.
Here are short bios that Nina and Robyn put together for us with links to their work:
Nina Raizel: "I am a rising sophomore at RISD, majoring in jewelry. When not making jewelry, I love beading, knitting, sewing, working with wood and metal, doing taekwondo, and baking cupcakes. I enjoy interning for Grain because of their innovative designs and their dedication to using sustainable materials. You can see my work on Etsy here."
Robyn Luk: "Having discovered an interest in woodworking and furniture design over wintersession, I will be studying Furniture Design when I return to RISD in the fall. My curiosities include the workings of sustainable design and business in this field, hence my enthusiasm about interning at Grain. During my spare time, I enjoys wildlife photography, woodworking, baking, and reading. Feel free to check out some of my work here."
