Bracelet by Marie Eife from “The Magic of Making: Adornment” show at Florida Craftsmen.

There was a time when I loved those little blue boxes from Tiffany that promised something with status. Nowadays, I like my jewelry interesting. Florida Craftsmen Gallery always has display cases full of pieces in many price ranges and styles. Through July 5, you'll find the essence of that variety in "The Magic of Making: Adornment," featuring 10 jewelry artists with different aesthetics: Vicki Bennett, Chris Carlson, Sana Doumet, Maria Eife, Wiwat Kamolpornwijit, Janis Kerman, Tamar Kern, So Young Park, Gustav Reyes and Owen Sweet. Seems as if everything but drones is being made with 3-D printers. So, yes, there are examples of jewelry, and you can see how it's done on Saturday. The demonstration is at 10:30 a.m. at Florida Craftsmen Gallery, 501 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, and it's free. Shown is a bracelet created by Eife using a 3-D printer. floridacraftsmen.net or (727) 821-7391.
