Showing at Baubles & Beads
through November 18th
It is amazing how so many of us begin our journey into jewelry making propelled by the idea that we just want to make a single piece. Somehow along the way it turns into an addiction and we feel compelled to learn more, make more, and of course collect more beads. Each of the following artists began the same way: with a single step. Although this exhibit features beginners and professionals alike there is a common thread amongst them all that binds them into the same show, a love for beads and metal and bringing forth something beautiful from them.
Visit the entire collection at the store in Berkeley, CA.
Here are a few highlights from the exhibit:
Perhaps one of the most time consuming forms of beadwork, seedbead woven projects easily span many months, even years for larger pieces, of dedicated work.
Metalwork & PMC
Rivets, flame, hammers, files and sweat go into making fabulous metalsmithed jewelry. We are proud to see so many of our students branching out to design and create their own works of wonder.
Wire Work & Stringing
A wrap here, a tuck there, wirework and stringing demonstrate the art of seamless beginnings and endings. Each art form focuses the attention toward beads and the use of color, texture and form.
