….Nearby, the booth of Wendy Wetherbee, owner of Pure Dichotomy, in Derry, was brilliantly lit to display jewelry she made that included some pendants whose reverses were as richly decorated as their fronts. Gemstones and precious metals graced some pieces, all handmade with saws, hammers, files and heat.
Onlooker Caroline Liebenow, of Nashua, a visitor to the show and an artist specializing in graphic design, deemed the work of Wendy Wetherbee “magical,” as she estimated the many hours of work entailed in completing each piece.
“As a fellow artist, I can truly appreciate all the elements,” Liebenow said. “The jewelry was magical.”
