1st friday's in Kansas City

It's time for 1st friday's in the Crossroads. Come on out to Elements of Green and see brand new work from Amuck. We will also have a few classic pieces but with a new spin. I think this group of CityBird necklaces is my favorite, the birds look like they've been to a carnival AND a Kiss concert!

He fell into a ring of fire!

Yesterday and todays rings for the Ring A Day challenge.

"The Devil"(ring #174) is made from clay and steel wire then painted. Mike from Mike and Mary jewelry left a comment suggesting add a little fire, so tonight I did. Ring #175 "Ring of Flames" is made from steel wire and tissue paper.

Ideas and work in progress

I was commissioned recently to do an eyeball ring. I've been contemplating and sketching how I would make this. Tonight I started messing around with the metal. I'm really liking what I(eye) see so far.

It's so fun when one idea combined with other pieces sitting on my bench spark a new design. How cool would a skull with big bulging eyeballs be?

Other stuff that I'm working on this week.

Rock On

The Rock Star bracelet is finished! We will have this piece along with others in this style at our upcoming show on July 2nd(first fridays in the Crossroads) at Elements of Green. If you haven't been to Elements before it's a fantastic store of sustainable/eco-friendly building and remodeling supplies. So of course Bryan and I just LOVE it! Hope to see you out there.

Craft Challenge results are in!

The Ink craft challenge that we participated in is on stands now. Here is our friend Emily on the cover.

Our photo shoot/story on page 29.

I wanted to give you some shots of the pieces up close. I really like this little "prize" brooch. It was constructed from a necktie,copper and the lid from a plastic container that held pantyhose.

The necklace was made from a toothbrush,copper and some vintage chains.

The ring is also from the same toothbrush. Some of you may recognize this from my Ring a Day project.

The safety glasses and first aid kit were made from a video cassette and its box.

Always where those safety glasses in the studio!!
