The International Society of Glass Beadmakers (ISGB) juried over 100 applicants and chose 40 artists to collaborate with the Seattle Metals Guild (SMG). Each glass artist made three similarly styled beads that were then sent to a SMG member to make three brooches, pendants or rings. The bead maker and metalsmith will get a finished piece, and the last will be displayed and sold at Facere.
I was very honored and excited to have been paired with jewelry artist Adrienne Krieger. Her work is beautiful, and her talent extreme. You can visit her website at adriennekrieger.com .
As stated above, in this collaboration, I supplied three similar beads for Adrienne to use in making three pieces...one for the exhibit, and one for each of us.
Above are pictures of two of the finished necklaces. I absolutely love what she has made. I think the silver and glass are beautifully paired, one complimenting the other. Thank you so much, Adrienne...it will be forever treasured!
