This statement maker creation by Carolyn Baker is made from enameled copper discs that have been fold-formed into organic islands, dappled with a palette of color to complement a stone of mottled turquoise she brought home from the Southwest.
The enameled discs are from the CommEd Enameling class she took last month.

If you’ve taken a class, the Garage is open to you during OPEN STUDIOS for free use of tools you’ve been trained to use, as well as flux and pickle.
You supply the materials for your creation: metals, findings, solder, oh…and saw blades. (You can get solder and blades from me, too.)
There is a lot to be saved by combining our silver, tools, and supplies lists. Quantity equals bulk discounts and much lower shipping, and many of the things that should be on your list just aren’t available within the reach of a day trip.
I’m in cahoots with Airbnb. I offer an Airbnb EXPERIENCE every week through November!
Airbnb experiences were designed to offer travelers the inside track to experiencing any location through the eyes of, and in the shoes of, a local host. Airbnb fosters belonging in its home stays and now in its activities!
I chose one of my most popular classes, the Wave Spinner Ring and host it every Thursday or Friday. Registration for these special rate classes, with French press coffee or water, is at Airbnb.com
The original name of this cuff bracelet was 3 Together to accentuate how wonderful differences can be—when they work together. And what a great example this turned out to be!
Each upcycled copper band is textured by you in this class, giving you several skills: adding texture with jeweler’s hammers, creating a pattern of impressions with punch tools, and twisting a piece that has been rolled through a jewelry mill.
Then things get trickier, but also very rewarding, when you heat a silver rivet to ball-up the ends, and then use that to connect your lightly tangled bands into an aesthetic group with old-school made-from-scratch cold connection rivets!
