Audrey Laine | Jewelry Demo + Pop-Up
October 5, 2018 @ 11:00 am - October 6, 2018 @ 4:00 pmFree
In celebration of American Craft Week, local metalsmith Audrey Laine Sawyer will be at Grovewood Gallery on October 5 and 6 from 11am-4pm selling her wares and demonstrating her process of piercing nature-inspired silhouettes on the face of her hand-fabricated hollow form jewelry. “A lot of folks make the assumption that my work is done with the help of laser cutting,” says Sawyer, “but being able to demonstrate the precision and tools involved helps to connect them to the work and to my methods.”
Audrey’s signature collection of shadowbox earrings, pendants, and rings will be available to purchase, as well as her jewelry that incorporates lost-wax castings of her own carvings and found objects, such as stag beetles and bird bones.
Audrey holds a bachelor’s degree in studio art from Rollins College and is also a 2010 graduate of Haywood Community College’s Professional Crafts Program. She was juried into the prestigious Southern Highland Craft Guild in 2016.
