New Mexico State University art students to hold jewelry sale

New Mexico State University art students will hold their annual jewelry sale from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 7, in the lobby of the university's Williams Hall.

elry is handmade with materials ranging from vinyl, chalk, plastic, wood and bone, to pearls, silver, gemstones and bronze. Items available include earrings, pendants, rings, brooches, toe rings, adornment for piercings and head ornamentation.

The sale is part of a class assignment on designing production jewelry. Most items are $10 or less and profits benefit the students and the university's Jewelry and Metalsmithing Visiting Artist Program. Seventy percent of proceeds will go to art students for materials, and 30 percent will be used to bring guest artists to the university.

The Visiting Artist Program brings artists to campus to lecture on their work and conduct technical workshops and critiques. Artist Heidi Schwegler will visit during the spring semester to lecture on her work and give a two-day workshop on cast resins and silicon.
