Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

One of the most important outcomes will be that jewelry will be seen as art and those attending will be invited to consider wearing an alternative to mass-market jewelry.I will seek comment both during the process and at the capstone event. The media will also be tapped to continue and expand the conversation.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Created a body of work using new techniques learned through coursework and exhibit at a local gallery. Took coursework in new techniques, and in blogging. Updated website and showed work in three new venues.
