Craft / Product / Project
So you have an Art Jewelry degree, now what?
In this workshop Erin Gardner will discuss her approach to developing a practice based in art jewelry after academia.  Developing an identity by weaving together an individual art practice, a production company, collaborative work and curatorial group projects.  Within this framework we will discuss alternative strategies to promote art jewelry and elevate the field.

Gardner currently lives and maintains a studio in Portland, Oregon where she co-founded and manages the Opulent Project – a collective approach to promote the individual practices of emerging jewelers through themed collections and projects.
