The Open Doors Studio Tour Spartanburg is a self-guided 2-day event, each spring, that is free to the public.
How can you live without color? Just love playing and working with all kinds of materials to create jewelry pieces. I started with copper work, learned about turquoise patinas, moved on to sterling, Argentium. texturing on metals and learned about some studio tools. Then came some soldering, simple stone setting and a few years of enameling classes and one long week of adhering prisma colored pencils to copper. Recently, I have been exploring fused glass classes and working with Vintage tin earrings. Yes, some of my work maybe be trendy since I go to local festivals but that does not mean that I do not enjoy better gemstones, or gold filled or rose gold filled wire, Murano glass, and good pearls to create nice pieces.
