Designing Unique Jewelry with Paper Beads
Saturday, August 26, 11 am-4 pm
Colorful strips of paper transform into beautiful beads at an upcoming workshop lead by multi-media artist Bunny Tobias. With expertise and humor, she’ll guide participants as they craft 20-inch necklaces using Japanese handmade papers and other media. Participants will learn how to make the beads and create a necklace over the course of the workshop. All tools and materials will be provided—along with great conversation and delicious refreshments. The workshop takes place in form & concept’s lofty second-floor gallery space. Make sure to reserve your spot, as seating is limited and filling up fast!
Bunny Tobias was born in Brooklyn, New York and is a graduate of the New York School of Visual Arts. While developing her career as a multi-media artist, she lived in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and in San Francisco until moving to Santa Fe, NM, in 1972. Along with her husband, artist, Charles Greeley, she made her studio outside of Santa Fe on their mountain property in the Glorieta Pass. For the past forty years Bunny Tobias has continued to create cutting edge ceramic art, paintings, mixed-media collages and to design and fabricate jewelry using the same eclectic imagery. Recent work includes sculpture using recycled material and hand fabricated bronze jewelry.
