On this Thursday's program, guest host Mona Hair, of ‘The Jewelry Connection’, http://www.livevideo.com/The-Jewelry-Connection, chats with Maureen ‘BZ’ Brusa Zappellini (aka @Cosmos_moon’ on Twitter), BFA, Tufts University, Medford, MA, and Studio Arts, four year Diploma, from School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston MA, in painting and metalsmithing. See some of Maureen's work here: http://cosmosmoonjewelry.blogspot.com Per Zappellini: ‘In creating my designs, I strive to re-capture the feeling of wonder from new discoveries that we all had so naturally when we were children. Take a close look at a collection of my work and you will find a virtual catalogue of textures, colors and metalsmithing skills. The component/collage based methods I employ in building my pieces allow me to stretch my work’s visual vocabulary between the traditional goldsmithing that I studied during my years in Italy to the more contemporary metalworking I continue to explore here in the US’. Zeppellini adds: ‘By working with many different techniques I am never bored by any of my studio work and the pieces are always fresh and evolving. I truly love working with metals and I believe this passion for the craft is evident in my work's design and attention to craftsmanship.’ Please join us for what is likely to be a fun, informative and instructional conversation with Maureen.!
