Jewelry designer Crystal Landucci will be the featured artist at this month’s “Meet & Greet” at Second Street Gallery in Bandon. On Saturday and Sunday June 29th and 30th from noon to 4pm, Landucci will set up a mini-jewelry workshop in the gallery and will be working on several different pieces. One is a necklace called “Blue Nile”, another “Queen of Hearts” and a third, which features gemstone talons, is called “Dangerous”.

Landucci’s pieces incorporate hand-forged sterling silver, brass, and bronze wire and sheet metal as well as semi-precious stones and found objects such as nuts and bolts, coins, charms, teeth, game tokens, and assorted flotsam and jetsam. “I like jewelry that is entertaining and meaningful to the wearer – and, of course, it has to be beautiful too!”

Crystal is mostly self-taught but has also taken classes from Kristin Mitsu Shiga at Oregon College of Arts and Crafts in Portland and Veneta Stender and Anne Sobbota at Sage Gallery in Bandon. She was “hugely inspired” by ttending a show of Alexander Calder’s work in New York City that included many of his jewelry and circus themed pieces a few years back. Her work can be seen exclusively at Second Street Gallery in Bandon, although she will be having a show at the Bandon Library in October.
