Lisa Barth is a wire jewelry artist and metal clay instructor from Atlanta, Georgia. She teaches wire artistry and metal clay and absolutely loves sharing her passion for this art. Her work has been featured in Bead&Button, Australian Beading, BeadStyle, Metal Clay Artist Magazine, Bead&Button's Creative Beading Vol. 4. Her work has also been featured in a polymer clay book by Barbara McGuire called Creative Canes.
In 2007 she took an introductory class in Art Clay Silver at a bead show, and it blew the doors open to the unlimited possibilities to add custom metal work to her designs. She was instantly fascinated and hooked.
Lisa begins her designs and draws her inspiration from the stone she is working with because she feels itís the best way to create harmony between the stone and the setting. She plans out her designs completely, making drawings and templates to guide her in the fabrication of her work. She most often bezel sets her stones and feels that bezel setting is what she is best at.
Lisa teaches classes on metal clay and photography in her home studio. Bezel set stones is her specialty and in her classes she shares her expertise in designing organically, achieving harmony between stone and setting.
