New Year & the Winter Studio

IMG_3078 IMG_2807

As the new year starts I take a bit of a rest and a few days to process the past year. I will attempt to tame the chaos in my studio and house (admittedly this chaos reigns semi-regularly…. especially over the Holidays). Now I can sleep, gather misplaced tools and sweep out last years mishaps and debris.  Along the way I process and prioritize and remember just how thankful I am!

I have so much to appreciate this year, first of all you! Whether you are a customer, friend, fellow artist or someone who happened to pass by, you are the community that makes my life as a jeweler & artist possible, so thanks! Tonight I have extreme gratitude for a cozy fire ( 5 degrees outside, brrrrrrrrrrr), hot tea and my little house/studio that I rent from two sweet friends. Soon I will be getting back to the anvil, sketchbook and torch but for now here are some shots of my studio, home and work in progress…… Happy New Year! May 2015 bring you good health, good friends and happy hearts!

Fall Preparations

IMG_2098IMG_2384

With the change in seasons my work has been shifting in minor ways. Among these are playing with new designs, preparing for harvest festivals, bringing in the last garden veggies (and flowers!!) and enjoying the beautiful colors, smells and sounds. I have been getting my hands dirty in the studio and the garden and am looking forward to the produce of both. I hope you all have been out enjoying the beautiful weather as well! I just posted some new show dates so check them out
