My learning with Robert Ebendorf

I have been very lucky this year to have been able to take workshops with wonderful artists.
When I knew Robert Ebendorf was coming to my city, San Antonio, I was so happy.
Finally the date for the workshop came in and I spend three days with this incredible artist and person at the Southwest School of Art and Craft.
To be able to see him and his work in person was very nice. He is a very patience and sharing teacher from which we all learned a lot.

I always take all the information about the techniques and create my own interpretation with my own style.
I love to use objects that are close to my heart and this time I use two big milagro charms I had from Mexico for almost three years. With his class I knew how I could use them to create a piece of jewelry.

My first piece was an angel milagro charm, copper, brass wire and chain, pearls and glass beads.

On my second piece I used a hallow milagro charm , copper, pure silver, peridot, pearls, brass wire and one of my copper clay trees of life.

Thank You Robert Ebendorf!! 
You are an incredible artist and person!

  6. Hi Lorena, Came upon your work while googling Bob Ebendorf. I had the great privilege to study with Bob at SUNY in the late '70's (yes, I'm that old! : ) Anyway, I wanted to take a moment to tell you how touched I was to see your work; especially the flourishes of cold-connection genius I saw in your pieces from the workshop! I encourage you to keep doing these great works. Cathy Frank, Pittsburgh
