Patty Rockwell will have her copper jewelry on display at the 2009 Payson Art League Fall Show Oct. 23, 24 and 25 at the Mazatzal Hotel and Casino Event Center. She starts a piece with a sketch copied onto paper with an adhesive back. The paper is affixed to thin copper sheets between a bench pin and Rockwell’s kitchen table top with a c-clamp and then cut out with a jeweler’s saw.

Rim Country’s outstanding artists share works, stories
