Please join jewelry designer Claire Kahn at Patina Gallery this Saturday for a demonstration of exquisite beadwork and a conversation about her artistry in color and pattern making.
Kahn, an internationally known maker, creates bead-crochet necklaces and bracelets in her studio north of Santa Fe.
For this unique afternoon at Patina, Kahn shares her sophisticated approach to design, blending a passion for pattern with a love of craftsmanship and luxurious materials. To the touch, the bead ropes are snakeskin. To the eye, they call to mind the complex mosaic on the face of an architectural masterpiece.
Her animated, vibrant and visceral demonstration is tailored specifically to admirers of the art form, coming one day before the opening of Beadwork Adorns the World at the Museum of International Folk Art.
Patina Gallery is Kahn’s exclusive international representative.
