Craft Guild Fundraiser
About a year ago I took metalsmithing at the Craft Guild of Dallas, the city's oldest non-profit art instruction organization. Located near Spring Valley and Midway, the Guild offers classes in metalsmithing, bookbinding, pottery, glass, fiber arts, painting, and kid's crafts. Become a member and drop in for some studio time on your own! On Sunday, August 10th, the Guild is holding a large art sale to raise funds to help pay for day-to-day expenses as well as repair of studio space and equipment. I donated two necklaces that you can purchase to help out the Guild! One is a felted balls design made with 100% needlefelted wool in swirls of blue, green, and magenta, accented by silver chain and wood beads. The other necklace is Phoenix Rising (pictured below), a beaded piece with a carved bone pendant. (I am discounting and/or giving away any jewelry I have made with animal by-products, which I won't be using anymore in my design pieces. Get in on the deal!)
