New Work

This is one of my new pieces that I will be showing at the Buyers Market of American Craft next month in Philadelphia. It's the first bracelet that I've ever offered and I hope it will be hit, it's a fun piece to make. I textured the side of the copper, wanted it to look kinda like a large penny. Materials used are sterling silver,copper and part of a stop sign for that beautiful red showing through.

First show of the year

I was invited to be a part of this show called "New Directions in Contemporary Jewelry" in Lakewood,Colorado. It runs through April 2 so if any of you are in that area or traveling there please check it out. Bryan and I wish we could be there for the opening night this Thursday but our friend Dia has promised to take lots of pictures so we can see the exhibit too.

Sketch a Day 2011

Wow,well it took me long enough to make my first post of the new year huh? So, this year's challenge is to do a sketch per day, and when Im talking sketch I mean just a doodle basically. These will just be quick little renderings and most likely they will be jewelry ideas that I will work on during the year.

After doing the Ring a Day challenge last year i think it's a really good idea to have some creative project that I hold myself accountable for each day. I came up with so many great ideas last year and look forward to what will come from my daily doodles!
