Metal Magic with Stephanie Lee

If you happen to be near the Northern Virginia/DC Metro area, there's a great weekend retreat planned with the popular metalsmith Stephanie Lee of "Semiprecious Salvage" and Homesteaders Metalsmithing fame. 

Stephanie will be teaching three different classes:

Junk Drawer Metalsmithing

Handbook of Elements

Pipe Dreams

I'm going to take the Junk Drawer Metalsmithing class, hoping to learn a few new tricks that I can add to my current style.  I like Stephanie Lee because her style of metalsmithing doesn't require anything more than what you can pretty much buy at Lowes, making it accessible to anyone.  

If  you're interested, hurry and register -- I'd love to see you there and share some beads!

Lori Anderson creates jewelry for her web site, Lori Anderson Designs, and wrote the blog An Artist's Year Off.  She's also a contributor to Art Bead Scene.


  1. aww, I'm going to miss you! I am just there for Sunday's Pipe Dreams session. B has a CubScouts banquet on Saturday so couldn't do that one.

  2. Ooooo! I wish I could be there too! Stephanie is teaching in Petaluma, CA, in September,which is about 45 minutes away from me. I'm taking her "Pipe Dreams" class too. I just love love love her techniques and philosophy of jewelry making. :-)

  3. I know you are looking forward to this! I am excited to see what you learn.

  4. Have a great time, Lori. I can't wait to see what creations come from this class. I LOVE the piece shown for the pipe dreams class. Stephanie's work is so amazing as is yours! ENJOY!

  5. Have fun! Wish I was going this time, but you know, surgery can do that to you! I hope you are well!
