Deer Me or Hello Dolly Necklace Class

“Deer Me” or “Hello Dolly” Necklace
Original artwork and design by East Lansing artist,
Jill Quillinan
Open to all creative-types and wanna-be’s!

Artist and teacher, Jill Quillinan is intrigued by the idea of a tiny shrine that can be worn and used to display tiny treasures; thus “Hello Dolly" and "Deer Me" were created. 

Jill hand-sculpted the doll head adorning a metal shrine filled with tiny treasures: a vintage Christmas tree, a tiny glittered bird snuggled in a winter nest, a little fawn nestled inside among the snowflakes.

Anything meaningful and tiny can be tucked inside your dolly and then be worn as a necklace, pin or ornament!
Learn some of Jill’s favorite techniques in soldering, patina, painting and gold leafing your dolly.

This class is for creative adults into mixed media, altered art, #lovelansing!
