Polymer Clay Earrings

Since my recent drawing spree, I had been itching to break out my polymer clay stash just so I could play with color. I also had to break out my books on polymer for a refresher, but it didn’t take long to remember how to work with it. I ended up with these textured earrings […]

Back to the Jewelry Studio

I’m finding my way back to the jewelry studio. It felt great to finish a few pieces yesterday, just because I could. But I’m a little rusty. What you don’t see here is the other bangle on which I melted a “pebble” and soldered one on the wrong side, and some ear wires I managed […]

Verdigris Copper Patina

Lately I’m fascinated with the process of creating a blue, verdigris patina on copper.  The end result is always a surprise, never to be repeated again, that requires experimentation to achieve. I’m especially fond of the contrast between the aged, rustic finish and modern, geometric shapes.  Add sterling silver to the mix, and it’s a […]

Chastain Park Arts Festival

With a beautiful weekend in the forecast and a wonderful location, I really looked forward to participating in the Chastain Park Arts Festival.  This was to be my biggest show, with sunny skies.  What you may not know, however, is that when it came close to show time, I struggled over the decision to attend.

Celebrating a Small Victory – Atlanta Art Show

From the beginning I’ve believed there is […]

In the Groove

Every now and then I have artist “brain-block”, when it seems no matter how hard I try, a design idea worth implementing just won’t come to mind.  That typically happens when I purposefully sit down to sketch ideas on paper.  But sometimes when I least expect it, ideas and inspiration flood my mind (and heart), […]

Losing Track

When I receive an email that an order has been placed in my online shop, it’s always a pleasant surprise.  While I’ve been in business long enough to know that orders will come in as long as I continue to do my part, I never expect it to happen the moment it does.  It puts […]

Copper Earring Love

The past two weeks have been somewhat different from the norm: last week C and I spent a week in FL on vacation, and this week, well, I must have had too much fun because I contracted a virus that left me with a 24-hour fever, among other things.  C joked that I’m a “bubble […]
