Enameled Penny Earrings Class With Lindsay Huff says
CLASS DESCRIPTION Check your change drawer for old pennies and create colorful pairs of enamel earrings worth way more than one cent! Pennies must be at least 34 years old to be utilized.

INSTRUCTOR Lindsay Huff is an artist and metalsmith who creates wearable art and works primarily in enamel. Her artistic process stems from a fascination with her materials and environment. Lindsay graduated with a BFA in Metalsmithing from Syracuse University, where she began her first experiments with enameling. As an artist, Lindsay loves the act of transformation and the dialogue between certainty and uncertainty: how glass enamels react with each other, the anticipation of waiting for a piece to reveal itself after a firing, and the hammered metamorphosis of sheet metal to finished vessel.
