11/12/2012 8:07:00 AM Thanksgiving Art Show at Bell Rock Plaza this weekend
by Viki Norris
The holiday season is upon us and the annual Thanksgiving Art shows start this weekend, Nov. 17-18, before Thanksgiving at Bell Rock Plaza.
There is another show on Thanksgiving weekend for you to bring your Holiday visitors to.
There will be over 40 artists and craftsmen and Vibhas Kendzia will be back with his beautiful Native flute music to entertain. There will be jewelry, paintings, copper art, photography, spa products, soaps and lotions, sculpture, crystals, rugs, glass, metal art, and more.
Featured this show is a local artist, Viki Norris who works with copper jewelry designs. Her pieces are one of a kind, and she makes several different types with the copper mesh jewelry line being outstanding and very different.
Viki uses Italian wire mesh ribbon, which is fine copper or brass that is enamel coated and it is nickel free, heat resistant, and waterproof. It is extremely lightweight and she uses real leaves that have been electroplated with copper, silver or gold as the focal point.
Viki also makes copper circle jewelry, which is melted copper with semi precious stones and beads wired on.
The copper is coated to keep from tarnishing and to keep the colors iridescent. Copper is the metal of channeling energies. It has the ability to ground and transfer a wide array of vibrational frequencies from the spiritual to the physical.
Copper can carry stone energy the way copper wire carries electricity. Each necklace comes with a story card telling the main stones energy and properties.
Viki shows at the Village Gallery, the Art Mart, and the Gold Door Gallery in Tlaquepaque.
The show is located in Bell Rock Plaza in the Village of Oak Creek, Sedona. The dates are Saturday and Sunday, Nov 17-18, and the hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please call (928) 284-9627 or visit http://www.bellrockartshows.com/.
