West Michigan Jewelry Artist Combines Aluminum and Resin to Create Reversible Bling
I’m a reformed gamer, but when I met jewelry artist Sarah Martin at an art show in 2007 my childhood obsession with 1980s games came flooding back. As soon as I saw the aluminum framed, resin-sealed Pac-Man earrings on her table, I knew I was going to cave and buy them.
After interviewing Sarah for my Art & Craft column (published in today’s Grand Rapids Press), I learned that her enthusiasm is not reserved for the freaks in jumpsuits who buy her jewelry. She actually gets a massive kick out of every sale and often celebrates by dancing around her studio. She makes people happy with her art and they make her happy when they validate her talent by buying her work. What a fabulous circle of happiness, eh?
