What an amazingly fun night we had last week at our meet-up with silversmith Robin Chard!
Robin is an extremely talented artist and we are so fortunate to have her as a member of our D.I.Y. Louisville Craft Collective. Her work has been accepted into some of Louisville’s biggest art shows, including St. James Court Art Show. Last year, Robin won first place at The Kentucky State Fair for a stunning jewelry piece made from various metals. We pretty much can’t brag about her enough!
We had a great turnout for this event and were happy to meet so many new friends. Here are a few of the pictures from our night working with Robin learning to harden metals, make swan necked jewelry clasps, and findings for earrings.
At the end of the evening, we each walked away with a swan necked clasp, and a pair of earrings that we created from start to finish with copper wire and beads. It was a great night full of laughs and creativity, and we are so grateful to Robin for spending her evening sharing with us!
