Edgewater Gallery

September’s artist at Edgewater Gallery is Margaret Paul. Paul has been creating spoon/fork jewelry for 11 years, and eight years ago began learning the techniques of making precious metal clay jewelry at the Mendocino Art Center. She now has a range of pendants and earrings in various styles on display in the gallery. Having been a potter some twenty years ago, she feels completely at home working with precious metal clay. Her technique of transferring crochet patterns onto porcelain is carried over into her precious metal clay pieces. Although she still sells spoon/fork jewelry, the demand for her fine silver jewelry is driving her to do more. Entrance is free. Light refreshments will be served. Masks are optional. Edgewater Gallery is located at 356 North Main Street in Fort Bragg. For more information, call 707-964-4668 or visit
