- Begin to look at your jewelry through new eyes
- See how you can improve your designs
- And ultimately become a more successful and thoughtful designer
**Bring a selection of your jewelry plus any current marketing material you are using for your brand like business cards, postcards, line sheets, etc. If you are just starting your journey and don’t have physical examples to share bring what you do have, including sketches and notes. As a group you will participate in a positive and interactive show and tell of your jewelry which will open up an opportunity for you to discover new ways to market yourself. **
Marlene knows design and wants to help develop your aesthetic and take your vision to the next level. This class is invaluable to the artist who wishes to push their concepts further to create strong and beautiful works of art.
Marlene Richey, who is known for her business and marketing classes, will reveal another part of herself that most people don’t know. Her father was head of the art department at the university level, and her uncle was head of the art department at Central Washington University. Both men published numerous books on art, design and art education. Marlene herself majored in art and metalsmithing in college and did postgraduate work on Russian icons. She was raised in an environment where the concept of “less is more” was prominent, and Scandinavian designer, Alvar Aalto, and the postmodern movement were common topics during family conversations. All of this was the perfect preparation for a successful career in the jewelry and craft world. These concepts are still popular today, making Marlene an ideal instructor and invaluable advisor to the modern designer.
