Our guest on the Thursday, January 27th, 2011 program at 3PM Pacific/6PM Eastern is jeweler Sarah Abramson, MFA. For more information, see: http://www.sarahabramson.us/index.html. 'In 2004, Sarah spent a pivotal year at The Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina where she was introduced to a world of jewelry in which style and tradition were elements to be discussed and explored. Inspired, she attended the State University of New York at New Paltz, earning her Masters of Fine Art in Metal in 2008.

Gestural ink compositions, pierced in copper and painted black, capture the movement of brushstrokes in metal. White enameled forms created by bending, folding, and fabricating sheet metal are voluminous and refined.
