meeting
The Magic of Niobium with Marti Brown

February 21st | 7:00 p.m.

One Municipal Drive, Flemington, NJ

Niobium, a very rare, pure metal, when put through an anodizing process, results in varying colors without the use of toxic inks or dyes.

Have you found yourself wondering how Marti gets those beautiful colors in her jewelry? Have you heard her talking about Niobium and wondered what the heck it is?
Join us as Marti demonstrates just how she does it!

Then you can take an opportunity to experience the magic of Niobium for yourself. For $5.00 you can make yourself a colorful pair of earrings to take home.

About Marti
Marti was always interested in the arts. Some of her fondest memories included art camp, painting in her basement, art classes in summer school, and involvement in choral music as a child. Marti became a professional artist and craftsman after completing her BFA in jewelry making. She has been designing jewelry for over 43 years. As much as she loves creating jewelry, she also greatly enjoys teaching, both nationally and internationally.

Marti has worked in a variety of traditional and contemporary jewelry metals and processes. To develop a niche for her jewelry she works in niobium, a colorful metal, and embellishes frequently with beads. A trip to Tucson for the gem shows reintroduced her to the joys of playing with beads. Marti is constantly looking for new sources of inspiration. She has added beadweaving, Viking knit, polymer clay, felting and chainmaille to her inspirational techniques.

You can find Marti at bead shows as The Dragon’s Odyssey. She is a founding member of the Delaware Valley Bead Society encompassing Hunterdon County in New Jersey and Bucks County in Pennsylvania.
