Norman & Emily Morgan*
Owens Cross, AL | Provisional Member
Throughout their lives together, Norman and Emily have used their artistic abilities to remodel and sell several homes. Upon retiring from careers in the military, they decided to pursue something that would utilize their artistic and design abilities. They started taking classes in jewelry making at The Mountain Metalsmiths School of Jewelry, and found they enjoyed this activity. Norman became interested in the art of chase and repousse’. This art form uses hammers and punches to move metal into a design, by repousse’ (raising) and chasing (pushing) of the metal. He trained with El Maestro (Master) Fabrizio Aquafresca of Florence, Italy and excels at this art form. He uses it to create bracelets, pendants and earrings.
Emily creates many beautiful and unique designs. She is often told her style is retro or boho. The seventies definitely influences her style and love for colors. Together they are dedicated to creating beautiful and quality pieces of jewelry that will be enjoyed for years.
