Powder Coating is a fun way to add color to your jewelry pieces by using a dry powder coating process as a metal finish. You will design and create two pairs of earrings using wire and sheet metal. During this process, you will also learn how to score and bend wire, pierce and cut metal, use layers and cold connections to create your own unique designs.
April 7-28, Thursdays, 6 - 8:30 pm
We are thrilled to have Gabriela Alvarado as a new jeweler and class instructor at Heidi Lowe Gallery. Gabriela was born and raised in Mexico City, where she later attended the School of Architecture for several years. She then moved to Texas and earned her Bachelor's in Fine Arts in Metals and Jewelry at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). Gabriela worked as a teaching assistant at UTEP for two years and later became the research assistant for the Metals + Jewelry Program. Her passion for using pure, simple shapes and forms has focused her work on minimalism, precision and detail.
