"Pretty with a Pearl" Ring
(with Artist, Marie Gniazdowski)
Saturday, May 5 from 11:00am - 4:00pm
Learn the next step up from a basic beginner as each student creates a one of a kind ring holding a pearl. Since pearls are nature made and delicate, we will make a cup with a post. This will be nestled in snakes of silver clay, creating a beautiful sculpture for your finger. You will complete and take home your one of a kind pearl ring. This class will teach techniques used for creating jewelry at the beginner to intermediate level. You will take home a finished piece of jewelry!

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.
