Jewelry designer, Akemi Walker, will be at Penn Cove Gallery on Friday, November 4, 2016, from 10 to 5 p.m. to demonstrate her work and methods. Akemi’s special love is art clay silver, a mixture of fine silver powder and organic material that comes as a form of clay. When fired, the organic material burns off and the silver fuses to become fine sculptured silver pieces. She uses freshwater pearls, semiprecious stones and Baltic amber with sterling silver to finish her designs. Living on Whidbey Island, Walker’s sculptured fine silver pieces are inspired by the incredible nature that surrounds her.
