Sacramento State students have a chance to experience the art work of others throughout the semester; however, there aren’t many chances to buy art from other students.

The jewelry sale at Kadema Hall on Nov. 18 and 19 offered students a chance to view and possibly purchase unique handcrafted jewelry from students in the Metal Skills Guild.

These students work at designing and making their own metal jewelry.

There were bracelets, necklaces, earrings, rings and key chains for sale, all produced by students at Sac State.

Stefani Landeros a 21-year-old fashion merchandising major has been making jewelry for 6 months.

“I like the idea of taking my time and making things from hand,” Landeros said. “I like saying I made it and trying something different.”

Landeros contributed a number of items to the sale such as earrings and bracelets.

“It’s great to see what students are capable of,” said Rachel Beck, a 19-year-old Sac State student. “I like to see what is being made here on campus.”

The sale featured various Sac State artists who all express their inspiration through metal differently.

“I like the challenge of working with metal,” said Casey Nicknig a 27-year-old math major. “I think what I like most is that you get inspired from everything other people are doing so you can get ideas and work off of that.”
