Judy took a class at the Scott Bluff Fiber Arts Fair in 2017 to learn to make zipper brooches and fell in love with this art form! To create these one-of-a-kind pieces, Judy uses locally-sourced gems, crystals, stones, beads, and deconstructed vintage jewelry. The alpaca fiber is also sourced locally, some of it coming from a herd of alpaca in Mitchell, that her daughter, Josie, helped feed and clean up after when she was in fifth grade. Little Hawk Yarns in Chadron and Brown Sheep Company are also local suppliers of my alpaca fiber. The photos shown are examples of the beauties you will create in class. These are free-form pieces, designed by you with colors, shapes, and embellishments you choose!
