Jewelry class at Timberline co-op Gallery
Earlier this month I took a 1 day class that could have been a whole week or month of instruction.. It gave us an overall on tools and their uses and excited us on what we could do with found objects..
Merylyn Whited is an amazing jewelry artist and friend that lives near us on the Fresno River. She shows her work at the Timberline Co-op gallery in Oakhurst, Ca.
We had two Maggie's in our class, both are friends of mine and delightful ladies.. All 3 are watching what Ray Magee is showing and telling about working with wire wrap.. Ray cuts his own cabochons.All this and more can be seen at Timberline Gallery.
Co-ops are run by the artists. If you are in the area, be sure to stop in and see their unique pieces, and perhaps you might meet them.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
