Along with pre-Halloween costume drama, there’s one fashion-minded inevitability you can count on October in San Francisco: lots of lovely locally-made jewelry on display during ArtSpan Open Studios, an annual event inviting the public into the City’s many artists’ studios over a five-weekend stretch.
And while fine art in the form of paintings, sculpture and photography dominate the offerings, there are numerous San Francisco jewelry designers showing their work each weekend. It’s a chance to step inside the maker’s workspace, chat a little about the process behind the pieces and purchase directly from designers.
The ArtSpan web site lists each weekend’s participating artists, a list that includes such jewelry makers as Phylis Johnson-Silk, Claudia Kussano and Kristiana Spaulding.
