Show Notes

Have you ever met somebody whose art is so fascinating and who is so enthusiastic about it that it makes you want to immediately run out and try it yourself?  

That’s exactly what happens when you talk to my friend Frances Syverson!

Frances uses techniques from beading to metal-smithing to create jewelry that is just fabulous!

And while she does sell her jewelry, the real joy she gets with her art is in the making - and in teaching others how to make it themselves.  Whether it’s friends and family, church members, or kids at the school where she works as a media specialist, she is always happy to pass along this skill that brings her so much happiness.  

That’s why I’m so excited that Frances will be teaching at this year’s Gathering of Artisans.  She’s teaching sessions on metal stamping and making copper earrings - including using flame to create a patina and other exciting techniques. No experience is needed - but her classes are filling up fast!  

Expanding our artistic horizons by trying new media and techniques is so valuable to our development as artists - and these new skills and experiences can take your art in directions you never imagined.  But you have to be there! Register now at and sign up for Frances’s workshops!
