SOLD OUT! CRAFT SERIES WORKSHOP: Treasure Necklaces
with Lisa Horton
Sunday, September 27, 2020 - 10:00 AM
The bottom of every jewelry box holds a trove of forgotten gems: single earrings, school mementos, charms, broken chains, and more. Let's turn these little treasures into a personal work of art full of memories and worthy of a catalog page. Each student will create a one of a kind piece, learning about jewelry design and the basic skills needed to make a clasp, attach beads and objects together with wire and work with leather cord. The class will focus on problem-solving as well as technique.
This workshop takes place Sun, Sep 27, 10am–1pm.
A childhood fascination with plants led Lisa to a master's degree in Plant Anatomy and she uses the textures and forms of the plant kingdom in all her jewelry. Moving from Arkansas to Idaho in 1989 opened up her vistas, changed her color palette, and inspired her to add leather and stones to her designs. She began her jewelry-making journey by learning to repair her treasured flea-market finds. She quickly progressed into making first silver metal clay and then bronze and copper metal clay pieces. In the last five years, she moved into traditional metalsmithing, adding sheet metal to the metal clay. She began teaching jewelry-making classes ten years ago and now topics on her class list range from metal clay to cold connections and fabrication.
