"It's a Wrap" Adjustable Ring
(with Artist, Marie Gniazdowski)
Sunday, May 17th from 10:00am - 4:00pm
Sometimes our ring size varies for different reasons; humidity, heat or arthritis. In this workshop, students will create a ring to accommodate that changing size, by making it adjustable in a novel way. It will be a partial wrap around. And depending on your design, you can wear it with the wrap in the front or back. You will be using Art Clay Silver to create this ring. The instructor will provide a variety of textures that will be your starting point. From there you will add accents by the way of balls, snakes and hearts, if desired. You can be creative!
NOTE: The material fee is not included in the cost of the tuition. This fee is due to the instructor on the day of the class and will include 7 grams of Art Clay Silver, handouts, firing cost, misc. consumables, and all necessary materials to complete the project. The tools provided during the class project will remain the property of the instructor. Students are recommended to bring glasses if needed. Lunch is not supplied so please feel free to bring a bagged lunch, or something to snack on. If you are making this ring for someone else, you will still need a ring size as a starting point. This design does allow leeway for the finger that might be a bit bigger or smaller.
A North Tonawanda native, Marie Gniazdowski started creating and selling art work before she even began grade school. She felt inspired by her father who was a welder, and chose to direct her artistic energies into metal working and jewelry design. After obtaining her Associate’s and Bachelor’s degrees in design, she began exhibiting and selling her work at nationally known craft shows. From there, she earned her Masters Degree in fine art from Rochester Institute of Technology’s School for American Craftsmen. Soon after, Marie began designing and creating models of jewelry and accessories. Now a Juried Artist from the Arts and Craftsman Guild and Art Clay Silver-Senior Instructor for the Aida Company, Marie designs and instructs others on how to create beautiful pieces with fine silver clay.
