September

This has been a week of really trying to balance creativity with business tasks. And sometimes the scale tips in favor of business over creativity, because it must. I completed a custom jewelry order and finished a couple of simple art pieces, but a lot of my time went into researching manufacturers for custom pillows […]

That Moment When…

…you’ve put in the work and realize the “magic” is finally happening. 🙂 This week I hit on something really special: a combination of charcoal drawing, color and pattern. Prior to this I had never considered using charcoal in pattern form. Yet once I designed the first one and added color, I knew that it […]

It had been two years since my last metalsmith class.  Experimenting on […]

New Fall Jewelry “Line”

“Line” is in quotes because that may be a stretch: there are only two pieces in this new jewelry “line”. 😉  However, they are most definitely inspired by Fall.  These are my submissions for a local artist show being held in September, with a Fall theme.  Since that’s my favorite season of the year, it […]
