Mildred Ball was born October 6, 1902 in Harrison County, West Virginia.  She attended Columbia University and taught jewelry making at the Community Art Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and Salem College.  She was one of the founders of the Arts and Crafts Association in Winston-Salem (now the Sawtooth Center for Visual Arts) and a charter member of the Piedmont Craftsmen, Inc., for ten years. She worked with various materials and techniques using enamel, ceramics, and sterling silver, creating jewelry and hollowware. She also created enamels depicting some of the buildings in Winston-Salem. (From my book, Modernist Jewelry, 1930 - 1960, The Wearable Art Movement."
