Barbara Minor

Barbara Minor completed her B.F.A. and M.F.A. degrees in jewelry and metalsmithing at University of Illinois and Indiana State University. She extensively explored enameling in conjunction with formed metal, creating enamel jewelry and narrative reliefs with the support of research grants, while teaching at the State University of New York at Geneseo. Since 1986, Barbara has concentrated on making enameled beads, jewelry and sculptural container or vessel designs which she exhibits at major juried craft shows and galleries. Barbara, regularly, conducts workshops, lectures and demonstrations for a variety of schools and organizations on enameling and related subjects.
