Morristown Artist Featured At Artisan Show
Jewelry artists plan to exhibit their handcrafted work at a free show In Chatham on Sat., April 30.
Rhonda Goldberger of Morristown, whose handcrafted jewelry encompasses both beadwork and metalwork, will exhibit her extraordinary handcrafted pieces at the Jewelers Studio Guild Spring Artisan Show from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., at the Ogden Memorial Presbyterian Church in Chatham. Admission to the show and parking is free.
Goldberger, whose trade name is RonniDee Designs, says of her distinctive and original work, “My pieces are made using a combination of metal (silver, copper and brass), semi-precious stones, agate, pearls and more. I especially enjoy working with cabochons and stunning natural stones. My jewelry has an inspiring beauty that accentuates personal style.”
For many years, Goldberger, who is co-president of the Jewelers Studio Guild, had been captivated by handcrafted jewelry. After taking first a knotting class and then a beading class, she was inspired to design and make her own jewelry.
“All my friends encouraged me to begin selling the jewelry that I designed,” she notes. “The response has been wonderful from friends who have purchased pieces as gifts and for themselves. And jewelry artists I’ve befriended through the years have encouraged me along the way as well.”
The nonprofit Jewelers Studio Guild, which was formed by and for local jewelry artists, promotes excellence and originality in handcrafted, American-made art. Handmade jewelry by guild members comes in many types and styles: metalwork in sterling, bronze, copper and fine silver; flameworked glass beads; bead weaving and mixed media.
