That’s right, I still make jewelry too! Remember I was working on a new set? Well, that 6 x 6″ piece of air chased sterling silver became a necklace, a cuff, & a pair of earrings! I’m super psyched to wear them this Sunday at the Art of the State: Pennsylvania 2015 opening at the State Museum in Harrisburg. Hopefully I’ll see you there and you can see these pieces, Fragmented, and bunch of other great art by other great artists too! 2 – 5pm! And teal hair!

It’s true, I haven’t had many posts of new work recently. As I’ve said, it’s not because I haven’t been working in the studio, but rather because of what I’ve been working on and they way I’ve been working. I had too many pieces going on at the same time to show a nice progression. Also, I had been working on a couple of larger pieces too. (I do still have to patina the copper and silver pieces, plus I’m still working on a matched earring/necklace set.)

But this past weekend I spent getting some new cuffs and giant earrings ready for the upcoming Fall Into Fine Craft show in Carlisle, PA. I’ll be in the boutique section and I wanted to showcase some new jewelry pieces there. You should really stop by and see these (and all the other artists’ pieces) in person. If you’re like me, you have a ton of October birthdays to shop for. You can also kick start your holiday shopping early. October 25 & 26 10am – 5pm. Be there or have unhappy wrists and ears. Your call. Oh, and don’t forget you can see Elemental in the Team Challenge Gallery too!

Big Ol’ Earrings

I’ve been working with the Alchemists to get our project finished before the big reveal at September’s Yellow Breeches Chapter meeting (it is open to visitors…) so I’ve been busy working on something I can’t really show you yet.

I did manage some time to finish up two pairs of those brass earrings I showed you, and I love the way they turned out. I took both on test drives to make sure they were comfortable. They are super light for their size and not too noisy (though they do make a sound when you move your head.)

A fun aspect to them is that the bottoms can slide around so they have a slightly different configuration every time you move. I’ll be finishing up the other pairs soon and then adding them

to my Etsy shop. If you absolutely need a pair now, let me know and we’ll work it all out. I’ve already had interest, so I think these’ll go fast.

I promise I’ll also add the silver ones too, I’ve just been trying to finish the group project since there’s a deadline looming.
