It’s the beginning of May and that means it’s time to announce two of this month’s featured artists.

Michael DC Seiler And his girlfriend Elizabeth Bucheit both are professional and master goldsmiths originally from Zanesville but now live in Minnesota.

"Michael specializes in setting opals, Elizabeth is very well known internationally for her work with tiaras," said Michael Seiler, Michael DC Seiler’s father.

Seiler and Bucheit are both on their way to Zanesville to make it just in time for this month’s First Friday. Seiler says both of them are highly meticulous highlighting their dedication and invested energy into their pieces.

"The other day he was telling me that he set a 40,000 dollar pink diamond. He said he nearly lost his mind but that’s what kind of work he does, he’s that meticulous and that careful," said Seiler.

To see some of Seiler and Bucheit’s work, it will be on display at this month’s First Friday, May 6th from 6 to 11 p-m at Michael Seiler 2nd floor studios at the corner of Market and 4th Street in downtown Zanesville.
