Tanya Stiegler, a jeweler at Art Up Studios in Hampton Station, will host the Greenville Jewelry Invitational on Sunday, Dec. 8. The event will showcase an array of wearable designs made by Greenville artists and is open to the public.

Stiegler’s professional and academic experience led to her involvement in the North Carolina Society of Goldsmiths. That group is now defunct, but it influenced Stiegler’s desire to form a similar group in Greenville.

“Greenville has such a vibrant arts community, but I feel that our jewelry artists may not be quite as visible as a whole to the general public,” Stiegler said. “We’re all hunkered down in our stores and studios working away.”

Stiegler said she hopes the event will demonstrate the wealth and variety of jewelry-making talent in Greenville. This is the invitational’s first year, but Stiegler plans to make it an annual occurrence.

“I want the Greenville Jewelry Invitational to make it easy for people to explore beautiful jewelry for themselves or as a gift and to feel good about supporting their local small businesses at the same time,” she said.

Light refreshments and beverages will be served.
