Metalsmith Benchtalk with Jay Whaley is all things jewelry and the art of metalsmithing. This is and has been a passion of Jay's for some time- he served as the head jewelery instructor at the University of California, San Diego, Crafts Center for over two decades and is also the owner/operator of Whaley Studios in the Hillcrest District of San Diego, and the inventor of many fine jewelry making tools. During our program, our intention is to feature artists in the craft and discuss, educate, problem solve and entertain callers while we consider topics of interest in the metalsmithing and jewelry making trades.

This unique collection includes jewelry made with carved wood, enamel, ceramic, beach rocks, plastic laminate, pearls, glass beads, sterling silver, brass, and steel. Former San Diegan, Eugenie Keefer Bell has lived and worked in Australia since 1981.

A selection can be made from an ever-evolving inventory of artists, or a custom piece may be designed using your stones or gems from the gallery's collection. Opening Friday, August 29, the show runs through October 10. Please join us for a glass of wine, and the opportunity to view a unique collection of handmade jewelry by these distinguished artists.
