It's that time, to teach classes at Emerge Pitt County Council of the Arts at the end of the month. I really do love teaching these small classes, I learn so much and so do my students.
In the session I taught two years ago several of my students took it to the next level with their pieces. One of the best parts of taking a jewelry/metals class, as well as teaching, is that making objects trains your brain to think in new ways. You are actively challenging yourself to figure out how parts can go together and which way of connecting them makes the most sense.
In the pieces Caroline made, especially the enameled pendant on the left, she made two pieces and tube riveted them together (or that is the plan). She wanted the texture of the piercing to overlay the splatter enamel she did.
Even if you don't feel like you have a creative bone in your body (which in fact we all do) you will still love working with metal and making jewelry. It's so much fun!
Sooooo, here's my pitch. If you live in the Greenville (Pitt county) area and want to learn jewelry making or take your jewelry to the next level - take my class! It's every Wednesday night, 6-8:30pm at Emerge Pitt County Council for the Arts.
As always, thank you for reading and stay lovely!
