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 began these mixed metal teardrops with a completely different vision for the teardrop shape (I didn’t plan on a teardrop at all), but I think the end result turned out even […]

Moving Forward

I feel like I’m entering yet another season of creativity.  As I look ahead in my calendar, there are many pages not yet filled with ink.  My thoughts are turning again to working on my website, trying new metalsmith techniques, introducing new jewelry designs…all while I have the freedom to do so.  Life experience has […]

Alpharetta Arts Streetfest

This weekend I’ll be one of the participating jewelers at the Alpharetta Arts Streetfest.  More than any other fine arts show I’ve taken part in to date, I’m really looking forward to this one.  There will be sunny skies with flowers in bloom, it’s close to home, and in an ideal location for showing my […]

It’s Greek to Me

Yesterday Chad and I spent time at a local Greek festival that occurs each October.  When I see signs displayed for it in the weeks prior, I know that Fall has arrived.  I love the smells and taste of the food, hearing the cheerful “Opa”s!, and listening to the music play.  It never fails to […]

Handmade Jewelry Now Available

Dear blog readers, I can’t tell you how happy I’ve been playing, I mean working, at creating my first jewelry pieces.  I’ve had the desire to work with precious metal for months, but had no idea how much I’d enjoy it.  I’ve had days where I’ve woken up early and gone to bed late, simply […]
