New Workshop

I am teaching an enameling workshop, in Maplewood NJ. November 22.

I taught enameling all summer. It was wonderful to get back to. The jewelry I sold through American Craft Council shows in the 1990's was made from silver and enamel, part of an ongoing obsession with color. When I moved to New Jersey, started my family and teaching, I went into a minimal oxidized silver and gold period. Felting really got me back into the joy of color. So now without the pressure of designing for a line of jewelry, I have slowly started incorporating enamel again. This summer, presented the perfect opportunity to really play.
It is a satisfying class to teach, because ultimately is a forgiving yet inspiring medium.
