Custom Artist Palette Necklace Pendant

Recently I had the honor of making this artist palette necklace pendant for a fellow artist and friend. She’s a super talented painter, so when she asked me to make a custom piece just for her, I was extremely flattered. She had a strong design idea for me to work with, knowing she wanted paints […]

In Recent Weeks

Maybe a little-known fact about me: I like technology, but I don’t like paying for it. That’s ironic for someone with an IT background, isn’t it? A prime example is my cell phone. A friend recently asked when seeing it: “Is that a flip phone?”

Mixed Metal Teardrops

It’s easy to get frustrated when a design doesn’t go as planned, but if you push through, it almost always works itself out.

I haven’t worked with hand-formed chain too much before now, but I really enjoy the rich texture of hammered wire. When a thick gauge is used, it has a nice weight to it. These are a couple variations of the “Pebble” theme. Made from copper and sterling silver, I go back to mixed metal jewelry […]

A Simple Reminder

Time at the bench has been limited and precious in recent weeks. I’ve been traveling, visiting with family, and working on an exciting new business opportunity that I’ll share with you soon. This morning, though, I spent some time in the studio, completing a copper ring order that was due today. As I applied the […]

Rejection: It hurts. It propels.

It finally happened: I applied for a fine arts show and was…rejected. You see, I can count on both hands the number of shows I’ve applied for. Each time I’ve been accepted I’ve been thrilled. But ten isn’t very many, and I knew that one day I’d be reading a “regrets” email instead of a […]
