Rings 360°

July 28, 2019 – August 3, 2019

Tim Lazure

Adorning the finger has been a tradition for ages. Rings are loaded with historical meaning and they symbolize love and marriage, evoke nostalgia, embody authority or status, and portray accomplishments or affiliations. This workshop explores jewelry design, fabrication, basic stone setting and assembling techniques for creating a ring. You will fashion rings of personal importance, expression and adornment. The class centers around lecture and demonstration with time for individual attention. Open to all skill levels.


Timothy Lazure is an associate professor in the Metals Design Program at East Carolina University, Greenville, North Carolina. He received his BFA at the Rochester Institute of Technology and his MFA at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. Lazure’s pieces are shown in numerous exhibits, including permanent collections of the Mint Museum of Craft and Design in Charlotte, North Carolina and in the Gallery of Art and Design in Raleigh. Images of his work have been published in 1000 Rings, 500 Brooches and The Art of Enameling.
