Sea Glass, Shell and Crystal Jewelry Workshops on Saturday, October 1st!

We are incredibly lucky to have Ency Whitehill giving a Sea Glass and Shells Jewelry Workshop on Saturday, October 1, at 10 a.m. at her studio located at 54 Gilbert Street in Orono and then a Crystal Pendant Workshop on Saturday, October 1, at 1 p.m. again at her studio at 54 Gilbert Street in Orono.  

Jim White and Ency Whitehill retired in August of 2006.  They have been avid mineral prospectors all their lives and have traveled extensively in the northeast and western United States as well as various parts of  Canada exploring mines and quarries for mineral specimens. 

Ency and Jim wanted to share their love of the many colors and variations of minerals with other people, so they learned to tumble

stones and to cut, slab, grind and polish minerals into cabochons and cut stones.  These stones are then wire wrapped or finished in other settings.  Ency has expanded her knowledge of techniques and methods through classes, books, and videos and she continues to create wire wrapped settings for stone and glass for her business, Rocks, Minerals & More.  Ency enjoys teaching this art to others both privately and publicly at The Beaded Moose in Bangor.    

If you’d like to sign up for either of Ency’s workshops please email with your name and the workshop for which you’d like to register.  Each of Ency’s workshops are $15 plus a materials fee of $5.  Please mail a check for the appropriate amount to Stillwater Community Arts, P.O. Box 292, Orono, Maine 04473.  Each of these classes is limited to 6 participant so act fast, as they are almost full!
