What you'll do

My jewelry is inspired by where the city meets the sea. All carvers are encouraged to bring an oceanic or industrial found object. We'll find inspiration in its line, form, texture and silhouette. You can get ideas on my website www.gracegow.com or anywhere on the web - feel free to pull out your phone for inspo. This workshop is where a few tools and a dash of instruction combine to fuel creativity. Using your own hands, your result is an awesome sterling silver ring — that you’ve made! You'll give the wax to me, she'll cast the ring and then professionally finish it to your matte or shiny specifications. First you'll begin with the sketching process. Then, you'll use sharp tools to remove large pieces of wax, and then tinier ones that are great for texture. Lastly, there's sandpaper and other tricks I'll share to give a rough or smooth final finish to your ring–you decide! I'll demonstrate all of these techniques for you and will consistently provide one-on-one instruction as I move around the room. About three weeks after your workshop, you’ll receive your custom sterling silver creation, delivered to your door. CUSTOM DATES CAN BE ARRANGED, JUST ASK! BYOB, IF YOU LIKE.

Cat

I'm a contemporary jeweler who's drawn to the stories of the sea, as told by texture. GRACE GOW is inspired by oceanic + industrial treasures (a rusty bolt or delicate claw...) and I set rough cut tourmaline and diamond gemstones in unexpected ways. Training as a metal smith, I fell in love with creative arts teaching process + the people I encountered. My workshop expresses my passion for metal arts and for helping others realize their creative potential. I've co-run a retail store, ran corporate events, held retail trunk shows and attended national trade shows.
