Steph Brouwers' Jewelry Show and Workshop

Our next show is titled "Inner Visions: Wearable Art" and features jewelry made by Steph Brouwers.  Steph is a good friend of ours who lives in Olne, Belgium, where she teaches art, sculpts, makes beads and constructs jewelry.  If you asked her what she does (and you'll get a chance to), she'd simply say she makes things.

We will be posting more pictures of her necklaces, bracelets and earrings in the coming week, but right now I just want you to:

1. Mark your calendar for Friday, April 5th.  That's the date of the opening of the five week show.  The time is set for 6 pm to 10 pm at Gallery 360, 900 S. Rodney Parham Road in Little Rock; and,

2. Consider signing up for her talisman workshop held the next day, Saturday, April 6th, from 2 to 5 pm at the gallery.  Participants will learn the significance of amulets and talismans, become familiar with the wonderful world of polymer clay and create a talisman for themselves.  Clay and tools will be provided.  Students may wish to bring findings such as earwires, clasps and cords.  They are also encouraged to bring in damaged costume jewelry or special fragments they may like to incorporate into their creations.  The cost of the class is $35.  Register by calling (501) 663-2222.

Bobbi Nesbitt has posted an interview with Steph over on her This Is Arkansas blog, along with pictures and more about the exhibit.  Also, check out Steph's own blog.  And Pinterest. Oh, and tune in Channel 16's 'Good Day' program next Friday morning at 7:45 am.  Steph and Gallery 360's resident artist Kelley Naylor Wise will be discussing jewelry making with Nichelle Sullivan.
