Ellen Marshall led this month’s meeting with a session on necklace design. Ellen brought in some of her early work and pieces by Kathy Amt and Maggie Maggio to illustrate design principles and explain how to solve design dilemmas. Members brought in their own work and we had a lively and friendly discussion. And we were graced with the presence of the inimitable Yetta Colodne who brought three necklaces for Show and Tell.
Thanks to Ellen for such an instructive and inspirational presentation. If you would like to read the article by Ronna Savaras Weltman that Ellen recommended, “Principles of Good Design,” in the December 2010 Step-By-Step Wire Jewelry, press here.
Special thanks to Sarah Sorlien for arranging for members to park in the Hillman garage instead of having to look for scarce street parking on Philadelphia Marathon day. And congratulations to Sarah on her election as guild president!
It was a great end-of-the-year meeting. But we’ll keep the blog posts coming during the break.
