Artist Statement

Hello. I'm Pat Thielman from Buffalo, Minnesota. For 2017 I am working with FINE PEWTER, a tarnish-resistant LEAD FREE metal alloy. For each piece I make an original model which is then molded, cast, polished and color-enhanced. My Fine Pewter pieces may be combined with my personally made flameworked glass beads, polymer clay, resin, chain maille, wirework and/or semi-precious stones. I draw design inspiration from both ancient and modern sources and I combine forms freely. I am thrilled when a customer tells me they have received compliments wearing my jewelry designs.

My flameworked glass beads are made from 'soft' glass from Italy, China and the USA. Each bead goes from the flame to a digitally controlled kiln for annealing which adds strength and durability. Some beads may be etched for a matt finish. My intricately woven chain maille designs are made from Sterling, copper, bronze, gold-filled and/or stainless steel jump rings. All pieces are tumble-polished for a beautiful shine and a smooth-as-silk finish. Some pieces may be chemically 'antiqued' as well.

I participate in approximately fifteen juried art shows per year and I am a Self-Representing Artist (SRA-T90).
