My name is HE Sigrun Osrikskona, mundanely known as Jennifer Coursey. I was the 6th Baroness of Wealdsmere, Apprentice to Duke Styrkarr Yarlsskald and Protégé to Mistress Regina O’Duncan. I have been Metalsmithing, with an emphasis on the ancient art of Repousse and Chasing for approximately 10 years, my latest work being a silver Pelican Medallion for Mistress Ayse, a Longship design for Sir Lachlan, and my husband’s and my Court Barony Coronets. I am currently working on my Kingdom A&S Projects and will be completed with those sometime in January. I am also working on some commission work as well as collaborating with Torfin on a piece for his collection. I am looking forward to teaching Intro to Metalsmithing this Collegium both on Friday night and Sunday Morning as well and look forward to seeing all of you wishing to gain some knowledge on where and how to get started working with metal. My door is always open to you as a mentor and companion on your journey. This ancient art is my passion and I am so pleased to be able share it with you all and help you in any way I can.
