San Francisco resident Boline Strand is among the local artists who will show off their handiwork at the Celebration of Craftswomen, an annual fine art show that takes place 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday at the Fort Mason Center. For more information, visit www.celebrationofcraftswomen.org or call (650) 615-6838.

What will you be showing at Celebration of Craftswomen? I will be showing basically my signature line of pomegranate jewelry — three-dimensional, hollow-form, sterling silver and gold pieces. They’re very graphic forms with inserted beaded areas.

What inspires your art? The usual answer you get is people are inspired by nature, by music. I’m sure a lot of that is true for me as well, but I’m also very inspired by ideas I get from my surroundings — renaissance paintings, people, ideas that come up when you have conversations with lovely, interesting people.

When did you begin making jewelry? I’ve made jewelry all my life. When I was a child, I worked a lot with seed beads. I wasn’t so interested in traditional things; that wasn’t what caught my interest. I mostly made little figures to play with.
