The Wellington Art Society demonstrator for the Wednesday, Dec. 14 meeting will be well known jewelry artist Lynda Turek-Koehler.
The meeting will take place at the new Wellington Community Center on Forest Hill Blvd. A meet and greet will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a special holiday theme and food. A brief meeting and a member spotlight will precede the demonstration by Turek-Koehler.
Turek-Koehler is largely self-taught and uses materials found in nature, in a mine or even at a local thrift shop. Each original piece of jewelry is unique, and her use of gems, shells and pearls creates one-of-a-kind pieces. Her jewelry is always fresh, elegant, fun and young. She makes her own chains, and silversmithing is another of her special talents. Her pieces have been worn at the White House. She also creates unique bridal jewelry.
Turek-Koehler is a member of the Gem and Mineral Society of the Palm Beaches and the Bead Society of the Palm Beaches. She teaches jewelry classes at the Jupiter Community Center during the school year and offers private and group lessons. Her jewelry is on display at Harbourside in Jupiter and in her Worth Avenue store.
The Wellington Art Society is a nonprofit charitable organization in its 36th year. It is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, allowing both local and regional artists to display their art work in local galleries, interact with other artists and serve the community through their art.
