Fall 2011 trends

I am looking forward to cooler weather as I love fall/winter clothing so much more than summer clothing. One of the big trends to be seen this fall will be fur and I especially love it in these bright colors! They are a very inspiring mix of color,pattern and texture. These photos are from the August issue of Vogue Russia and taken by Ben Toms. Click here to see more pics from this photoshoot.

Trunk show next weekend!

I'll be at Stick Sisters next saturday July 23rd for an Amuck trunk show from noon-3:00, if you're in the Kansas City area pop on by and say hello! I'll have my portable workbench with me doing a few demos so you can see a bit of the process I go through to make a piece of jewelry.
These are a couple of new additions to the Lucky 7 line that I'll have with me next weekend. If you can't make it out on Saturday the jewelry will stay at the shop through the end of July.

Happy 4th of July

This brooch titled "Boom" was made for the july Etsy Metal monthly challenge, our theme was independence day. This is the first time that I've ever laid two types of street signs next to each other, I like the way it came out. Seven other teammates made pieces for this challenge, you can check them out here on the Etsy Metal blog. Our next challenge is to make a piece inspired by Alexander Calder. That should produce some interesting work for sure!!
