Norman Arts Council started the Undercover Artist series in 2017 to introduce would-be artists to a variety of different creative mediums through hands-on learning experiences aimed for novices, amateurs and intermediate artists, alike. Covering subjects like sculpting, storytelling and photography so far, the latest Undercover Artist workshop features spiral jewelry making, led by accomplished artisan Sally Cloud!

In one afternoon, participants completing the Sally Cloud Spiral Jewelry Workshop will leave with a finished piece of jewelry ready to wear! Sally has been making wire spirals since making her first piece of jewelry at Philbrook Art Center in 1971 and will be sharing her knowledge and expertise in creating a focal point pendant of a hand shaped and hammered copper spiral. The spiral is one of the five symbols of humankind and ancient and modern examples of spiral wire jewelry will be shown along with some of Sally’s original designs.
Participants will receive their own beginning tool kit to take home! This kit is a $50 value and includes flat nose pliers, round nose pliers, a chasing hammer, an anvil jewelry making steel bench block. Each attendee will also have supplies available to create your own fun piece to take home the day of the workshop. The possibilities are limitless!
