For the latest installment of our Artist-to-Artist series, South Park Arts founder Wendy Woldenberg chats with Elizabeth Knopf. Both are fantastically creative jewelry makers who draw on found objects — Wendy uses natural forms to create jewelry in precious metals while Elizabeth represents nature by upcycling discarded materials. Both are veterans of Art Under $100 and will be happy to see you at the 2010 sale!
Elizabeth: Wendy, I am wondering how long have you been making jewelry and what some of your favorite materials to work with are?
Wendy: I started making jewelry to help pay my rent back in 1990. At the time, I mainly used wire and fimo clay, and sold everything for $5. With every piece I made and sold, I became more and more addicted to the sense of accomplishment. Lately, I have been really into using yellow gold and brightly colored faceted gemstones. But, I also like to use shells, river rocks, beach glass, and white metals, too.
When did you start making jewelry and what materials do you like to use?
