The show this weekend was a great success. It is always fun to talk with folks about handmade art. The weather was absolutely perfect the entire time, how lucky we were!

Although we loved the way the booth set-up turned out we've already been discussing ways to improve on it for next time, it's an ever changing thing.

We are now gearing up for a trunk show in two weeks at POPPY in Columbia,Missouri. This will be in conjunction with the city's artrageous weekend. It's going to be a fun time, looking forward to it.

Bryan & I are both so glad that we took today off from our 9-5 jobs, we were both totally void of energy today. We did lots of napping with the kitties!!! I worked in the studio for a bit this evening but will be right back at it full swing tomorrow night after work.

works in progress

I've been busy this week getting some pieces finished for the Plaza Art fair.

wings,skulls and birds all get a bath in some liver of sulfur.

The Plaza art fair opens this friday evening at 5pm. I'll be in booth 244(right in front of Halls).

Shopping Amuck style

Ahh, street signs. These are our current favorite material to work with in our jewelry. People always ask us where we get our materials so we thought we would share this weekends shopping adventure. We have been super busy since coming back from NY with getting some orders out and building up our inventory for the Plaza art fair as well as a trunk show that we will be doing at a fabulous shop called Poppy in Columbia ,Missouri. We are so happy to announce that Amuck jewelry is now available at The Artful Hand gallery in Chatham,MA. and Galerie Matisse in Lake Geneva,WI.

So, with all this work going on in the studio we actually ran out of sign that was a smooth white color(without the honeycomb pattern that most new signs have now). Time to look for more signs....

Here we are at a recycling artists dream...a metal scrap yard. Piles and piles of possibility waiting right here. We found some great stuff.

Back at home with my purchases for the day, time to get back in the studio! Plaza art fair is this weekend.
