Art Works Gallery presents two jewelers in the spotlight this Valentine’s Day weekend

On February 12, learn about the art of jewelry making, the tools and supplies used, and the opportunities to learn this art. Jewelery artists Pamela Klein and Vilina Hutter will be at the Art Works gallery to answer questions about work in progress, custom design and also give jewelry making demonstrations.

Implementing several techniques in her work, Pamela Klein creates jewelry that focuses on unusual gemstones, textures and nature themes. She will present sawing work at the Spotlight, in particular how she creates mountain landscapes and trees from sheets of sterling silver using a small saw and texturing tools. Pam will also have gemstones on hand to discuss setting and custom work.

Vilina Hutter creates silver jewelry decorated with vitreous enamel, fusing very thin layers of glass to silver at high temperatures. The art of enamel dates back to ancient Egypt, and as part of a growing movement of contemporary enamel artists, Vilina is eager to bring this magnificent art form to modern women who share her taste for colorful jewelry that can last, literally, for millennia.



The artists will demonstrate at the Gallery from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, February 12, just in time to shop for the perfect gifts for your loved one. In addition to four jewelers, Art Works Gallery Co-op exhibits a collection of high-quality artwork by local artists including furniture, paintings, photography, ceramics, textile arts, woodworking, glass and mixed media.
