Andrea Mueller was born in Ottawa in 1974. She moved to Halifax to study history at Dalhousie University. During her time at Dalhousie she took weekend classes in jewellery making at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. After graduating with a Bachelor of History, it seemed natural that Andrea pursued what she loved, working with her hands. It was at NSCAD that she discovered the satisfaction of creating a beautiful and wearable form of art. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jewellery and Metalsmithing. Upon completion of her degree she headed to Toronto, where she stayed for 4 years, to gain some practical experience and learn from successful designers. In 2004, Andrea moved to Creemore to enjoy rural Ontario living and set up her own jewellery business. Five years later Andrea moved back to Ottawa with her family and continues to create jewellery.
