The sale will feature art jewelry ranging from the traditional to the unexpected. All of the jewelry is skillfully hand-fabricated by the students and alumni of the university jewelry program. Materials such as sterling silver and copper have been transformed into wearable art through the use of colored enamels, tool dip and patinas. Alternative materials include egg shelled surfaces, anodized aluminum, Plexiglas, paper and found objects to create unique styles.

Prices range from $15 to $30. The group will accept cash or checks. Credit cards will not be accepted.

Profits from the sale will benefit the jewelry students and will support the metals studio through tool purchases, field trips and the visiting artist program.
