Wire-Wrapped Oregon Sunstones

Wire Wrapping Class

I taught a wire wrapping class to a fun group of 'rock hounds' last week. Each student brought a beautiful piece of Oregon Sunstone rough, which we wire wrapped in sterling silver. Their pendants turned out fantastic!  The pendants featured in this photograph were done by my students in their first wire wrapping class - nice job!!!

Featured Artist at Lunaria Gallery, March 2011

My first show at Lunaria Gallery - My work will be featured through the month of March, along with two other new artists, Jane Godfrey and Tonya Smithburg.

First Friday at Lunaria Gallery

Friday March 4, 7-9 pm – Lunaria welcomes 3 new artists to their group. Jane Godfrey has been making glass artwork for more than 40 years. Her stained & kiln-formed glass is inspired by natural and organic shapes. Helen Nute Wiens is a jeweler and silversmith and will be presenting her new “Silver Branches” series featuring hand-forged, delicately textured pieces using themes of leaves and flowers. Tonya Smithburg paints in bright colors and sculpts. Figures & animals inspire her stylized realism.
