Inasmuch as you did it for the least of these, you did it for me.



The Hands Of Inasmuch

For over a year, on Friday mornings, a dedicated group of budding artists have met at Inasmuch to learn the traditional skills of making art wire jewelry. The program began with funds granted by The Arts Council of Fayetteville Cumberland County. The instructor, Lisbeth Marín, is assisted by qualified volunteer from the United Steel Workers Union local 959 as well as local artisans. The goal of this vocational training program: is to develop a portable income source. Some of our homeless or struggling family naturally gravitate towards handcrafting rather than traditional employment. photo 6

 Student profiles include: 

  • Former Electrician with fine motor skills who is in recovery from alcoholism. He is making beautiful rings, unique jewelry and Trees of Life.
  • Single mom of 3, raising a high school aged daughter making straight A’s! Her goal is to cultivate an income source that breaks her free of the low income label. She creates gorgeous earrings, necklaces and focal pieces reflecting her sense of style.

  • Creative Outdoorsman who collects & transforms rocks and minerals found in Fayetteville’s historic downtown creeks, streams and wooded areas. He’s created unique gem trees, jewelry and one of a kind focal pieces reflecting his love of nature.

  • A disabled American Veteran confined to a wheelchair who is discovering a talent he never knew he had.  In learning this new trade, his artistic perspective has emerged.  The one of a kind jewelry and wearable art pieces he creates, reflect the strength in his hands.

Ongoing enrollment & weekly auditions welcome new students to join this group.
