Poetry of Motion
exploration of kinetic earrings
Join me for a two day workshop at the
well equipped Multiplicity studio.
We will be exploring a plethora of options to integrate hinges and other types of movement into a pair (or two or three) of unusual kinetic earrings, while also playing with bezels, prong setting, and semi hollow forms to add dimension.
Registration is open.

Dancing With Fire:
explorations in movement
A Vivi Magoo Production
in Mesa, Arizona
In this five day focused intensive, we will explore a variety of out-of-the-box techniques for an array of textures, from torch-tortured to hammer smashed to twiggy and twisted. We will experiment with ways of combining, fusing, even water casting silver to add organic textural elements to our creations. We will investigate many unusual, unexpected ways to approach adding movement to our work, be it through hinges, conventional and unconventional, or visual suggestion. Throughout this workshop, I will also introduce many principles of design to guide you towards making intentional choices in the direction of your work. You will have time to explore and integrate your experiments into a variety of completed pieces by the end of the session
update: due to popularity, a second workshop was added! both are currently full, but don't hesitate to get on the waitlist.
SAVE THE DATE FOR 2023
possibly September again.
