I would like to send a big THANKS to Tryon Art and Craft School!
Two of my pieces were included in their juried exhibition and one of them won 3rd place! If you are in the Western NC area, stop in and browse this beautiful exhibition. The show runs from April 25th through May 30th. Gallery hours are: M-F 10-4; Sat. 10-1
This brooch is one of the pieces in the exhibition. It is fabricated in sterling silver, 18k gold, peridot, amethyst and blue topaz. It is made from 46 pieces of metal and contains 51 solder joints!
FYI: I teach Intermediate/Advanced Silversmithing at Tryon. If you are interested in classes, please visit their website here.
