Event description

Description

Join us for a special artist lecture with fine jewelry maker Heather Beck, from Easthampton, MA. She was a studio assistant at Peters Valley in 2006. We are thrilled to have her back and hear what she has been up to!

"I got the bug for working with my hands from my dad, and fell in love with the alchemical magic that is metalsmithing as an undergraduate at UMass Dartmouth.

My studio work ranges from hand-textured collections inspired by the natural world I love to explore, to custom pieces that symbolize the magic in my client's lives.

I love the stories behind every custom piece, and work with each client to design an object that represents their unique truth. Sometimes it's a story of love, sometimes it's a story of achievement, sometimes it's about needing a talisman that can guide you through a storm. Whatever story brings someone to my studio, I feel honored to hear it and be a part of manifesting the next chapter.

Another very important part of my work is teaching. I hold beginner to advanced metals classes in my studio, and have a wonderful group of private students who are making inspiring work. I also travel extensively around the state teaching adult and teen metals workshops at libraries and to Scout groups. Please visit the Classes page on our website if you're interested in learning more about workshops, classes, or private lessons.

I’ve also been a beekeeper for about 10 years and you can see elements of their influence scattered throughout my work. It brings me great joy to work with these magical creatures and I feel connected to nature through my practice of this ancient craft."
