› of North Carolina will show her jew­elry, which re­flects her love of mokume gane, a 17th-cen­tury Ja­panese art form that means “wood pat­tern metal.” In mokume gane, pre­cious me­tals, such as ster­ling sil­ver and cop­per, are bonded into a sin­gle piece that is then worked into beau­ti­ful pat­terns.

Ac­cord­ing to her artist state­ment, she be­came in­ter­ested in “metal stuff ” as a teenager while as­sist­ing her fa­ther in the re­pair and main­te­nance of her cars and mo­tor­cy­cles. Cour­ses at the West Sur­rey Col­lege of Art and De­sign pro­vided fur­ther in­struc­tion in hand­craft­ing metal ob­jects at var­i­ous scales.

Af­ter grad­u­at­ing with a bach­e­lor’s de­gree in 1992, Met­calfe spent most of her cre­ative time work­ing on ar­chi­tec­tural iron­work projects. She be­gan on a smaller scale af­ter as­sist­ing in a mokume gane work­shop at the Ap­palachian Cen­ter for Crafts in 2001.

She will be on-site from 10 a.m.

“My work f ocuses on t he de­tails,” she says on her web­site. “I’ve em­braced my per­sonal pref­er­ence for the tiny and the sub­tle.
