Silver I

Silver I – Pattie Appleby

Wildacres – September 18-24, 2017

Let’s ETCH!  Come join me for an etching party!  Two days playing with ferric chloride and salt water etching!  Then we will spend some time making jewelry with the copper that we etched or use it to make texture plates.  We are also going to be make a spinner ring with sterling silver and a copper or sterling silver band.  Let’s make a sterling silver shaker ring! And finish the week off with a stone-set pendant with a toggle closure.  And, of course, there will be fun little quick things to make through the week.  I’m looking forward to seeing you in September!


Pattie Appleby Bio-

Pattie Appleby got a late start in the art world after a long career in the corporate world in human resources and raising a family.  Beginning to work with glass fusing, it was just a hop, and a jump to needing a frame for the beautiful pieces coming out of the kiln.  Thus was born a love of metalsmithing.  Having taught at Spruill Center for the Arts and SFMS and being an avid student,I have learned from some amazing artists and would love to share what I can with my students this year again at Wildacres.  Get ready to have some fun and make some beautiful pieces of art!  Don’t say you can’t because I know you can!
