Wax Carving for Unusually Shaped Gemstones
First Session: Sun, Mar 16, 2014, 10 am - 4 pm
Emilie Shapiro received her B.F.A. in Art + Design with a concentration in jewelry and metalsmithing from Syracuse University. She also studied at Alchimia, a contemporary school of jewelry in Florence, Italy with artists Peter Bauhuis, Yoko Shimizu, and Marzia Rossi. Before launching her own jewelry line, We Are Here – Emilie worked as the Production Manager at Pamela Love and Allforthemountain. Emilie plays with negative space in her work and incorporates them as part of the design. Her inspirations are drawn from the textures of nature and the energy of elements coming together.Click here to view other classes taught by this instructor.
