Todd has been handcrafting jewelry since 1971. He apprenticed under both Ray Grobe and Robert Burke. As an educator, Todd was the head of the Jewelry Manufacturing & Repair Program at both the Minneapolis Community & Technical College and the Southeast Technical College in Red Wing, Minnesota. Currently his direction is in historic jewelry manufacturing techniques. From 1890 to 1915, jewelry design was going through dramatic changes—the Victorian Era was coming to a close, Art Nouveau was at its peak, Edwardian designs were introduced, and the Arts & Crafts movement was flourishing. Jewelry of this period had an enduring quality looked up to today. With a workshop in St. Paul, MN he continues to produce history-inspired jewelry of quality.
