This striking piece designed by Tina Tavolacci includes an imprinted copper pendant with an enamel frame. Copper is heated and when cooled dried flowers are placed on top and put through the rolling mill leaving an imprint. The enamel frame is created out of copper and layers of enamel and torch fired. Tina is one of our talented jewelry instructors including torch fired enameling and metal arts.
"I love teaching and making art, which is perfect because I am an art teacher in Dowagiac Public Schools. I have three great kids, one cool dog and have lived in and love the area my entire life."
