First Friday with Elizabeth Costigan of EIC JEWELRY

Enjoy treats and wine when you join us for this "one night only" event and meet the artist from 5pm to 8pm. 

Artist Statement
I grew up in Rochester, NY.  My mother, an artist and innovator, taught me to make 'something from nothing' and the value of filling void with beauty.  I studied Photojournalism in Omaha and focused on combining Art, Journalism, and Sociology. 

I traveled with only a backpack.  I traveled again.

I collected jewelry.

I found home in the mountains and began to explore and appreciate copper as a grounding and dynamic medium. 

Connecting with other artists has been essential for my creative evolution.  

For me, creating is my mind dancing with my soul.  I expand.  My world expands.   My mind is color.  

*

EiC Jewelry was born in Missoula, Montana in February 2012. 

All pieces are designed and handmade in Missoula.  Inspiration for new designs arise from life experiences.  EiC Jewelry celebrates the patina oxidation process on copper.  The patinas are made from a mineral based recipe, and sealed to preserve color.

Ever Changing Never Changing By Rebecca Kelley

Join us for the opening reception of Ever Changing Never Changing by Rebecca Kelley. This months show will feature jewelry designs made out of Poppy Seeds! 

Artist Statement:
Heroinemade began in Missoula shortly after the birth of my son.  I had a small collection of poppy seed heads that I inexplicably felt attached to and time on my hands that I was not able to spend on my pre-baby hobbies.  I took some wire wrapping classes at Bathing Beauties Beads and started following my hunch that poppy seed heads could be made into earrings.  I was right.  3 years later I have made countless pairs of very differing earrings and also started making necklaces for people out of stones and other objects that I or they have found. I recently designed a website for all my work:  www.heroinemade.com.  Check it out and get in touch if there is something I can make for you!
