May Feature Window: Patty Schwegmann, Jewelry

  • Location: Illinois Artisans, Chicago, Chicago
  • Date: Wednesday, May 01, 2013 through Friday, May 31, 2013 , 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

"I hand form the "stones" using a porcelain clay and paint designs on these stones using different mixes of ceramic oxides. These stones are then fired to their maturation point of 2400F. Next, I take these fired stones and fabricated settings using sterling silver. Each stone is a unique shape and size necessitating each setting to be custom fit for that stone. After the silver has been fabricated I oxidize the settings giving the metal a dark gray color to frame the porcelain pieces."

Trunk Show: May 10th: noon-4:00 pm
