Julie Burkhart-Haid makes mini modern mosaic jewelry by breaking thin rods into small pieces and assembling them with tweezers and glue. In her studio at Solar Arts Building, she also hosted Cheryl Tryon, who demonstrated pastels. Tryon explained that pastels maintain their brilliance because they are pure pigment. They come in pencil, stick, and most recently, pan form.
