Art jeweler and metalsmith Rachelauren Somers will give a demo this Thursday, September 1,  at Rocky Neck Gallery from 1 - 2 pm on Chasing and Repoussé.

Don't miss this talented artist at work sharing her techniques in creating original high end masterpieces for body adornment.   

Repoussé is a metalworking technique where the artist hammers a piece of metal to create a design on the opposite side. Chasing is the opposite technique. The two techniques are used in conjunction to create a finished piece, sometimes referred to as embossing. 

Rachel earned her B.A. in Design from San Diego State University's School of Art, Design and Art History. She currently resides on the scenic north shore of Massachusetts, where she creates high quality one of a kind and limited production pieces.  See more of her work at Rocky Neck Gallery, her website  and on Facebook.
