Jewelry Fabrication in Steel
Sharon Massey received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Winthrop University in 1999 and her Master of Fine Arts degree from East Carolina University in 2006. She lives near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and is an assistant professor of jewelry and metals at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and serves on the board of directors of the Society of North American Goldsmiths. Her work has been included in exhibitions in Germany, Italy, Spain, and Japan. Images of Sharon’s jewelry have been published in seven books, including The Art of Enameling and Art Jewelry Today 2nd and 3rd Editions. Sharon’s work is included in the collections of the Racine Art Museum in Racine, Wisconsin, and the Victoria.
In this three-day workshop, students will learn small-scale fabrication techniques to create jewelry using mild steel sheet and wire. With properties different from traditional non-ferrous metals used in jewelry, steel offers an affordable alternative for experimentation in jewelry making. Forming, etching, soldering, pickling, and finishing techniques will be demonstrated with an emphasis on finding personal direction and unique designs.
Materials and supplies additional.
