From the news release:
Jason McLeod, Thursday & Friday, December 11th-12th – 12:00-8:00 PM
Jason McLeod loves the idea of time travel. In his notable “Time Traveler” series, this self-taught studio jeweler and goldsmith, who graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University, uses celestial coding and maps to create his “one-of-a-kind,” limited edition, or series pieces. Each work is crafted from 14k and 18k gold, sterling silver, platinum, high-quality gemstones, and other natural materials.
Gabriel Ofiesh, Sat & Sun, December 13th-14th, 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM
This artist uses traditional materials—18k gold, sterling silver, and precious and semi-precious stones—in nontraditional ways to create his signature “orbit” and “square” rings as well as a variety of other intriguing necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. A graduate of the University of Virginia and resident of Charlottesville, Gabriel has developed a national following in the 40 years he’s been designing and creating jewelry.
