Local artist demonstrates gold and silver leafing technique

Press release from Haywood County Arts Council: 

Melissa Enloe Walter, long time local artist, will be demonstrating her unique gold and silver leafing technique on jewelry at the Haywood County Arts Council (located on 86 N. Main St., Waynesville, NC 28786) on Saturday, June 2, 2018 from 1-4p.m.

Melissa has developed this technique by layering multiple acrylic glazes over gold and silver leaf to create luminous original works of art on canvas and jewelry. The pendants are miniature versions of her original paintings. In the demonstration, she will showcase how she hand-enhances each piece of jewelry with gold and silver leaf, therefore making each pendant a one-of-a-kind treasure. Her subject matter ranges from many of our Native animal species, such as foxes, owls and luna moths to ethereal waterscapes and landscapes. Featured jewelry will be available to view and purchase at this special event.

Melissa has operated numerous galleries and design firms in the Southeast and is now residing in Waynesville. Her studio is located in the 100 year old farmhouse where she grew up inspired by nature and animals.

Visit the Haywood County Arts Council at 86 N. Main Street in Waynesville to view the variety of art for sale. For more information about the Haywood County Arts Council, visit HaywoodArts.org.
