Here we are--it's February 8th! And it's still snowing! After a successful, but extended trip to Virginia, I returned home to Maine on Tuesday to four feet of snow and extreme exhaustion. While I catch up, here's the jewelry I created during January. I'm quite pleased with the work--new ideas and designs are flowing and I'm trying to keep my hands as busy as I can.
Flowers, shiny and oxidized, that are sculptural and three dimensional have really peeked my creativity. Layers and textures and patinas all enhance the final designs.
New reticulated jewelry has also sparked and the response from clients and friends has been overwhelmingly positive. If you can believe 8 pieces from this photograph sold at the show! I've been working daily to keep the creative momentum flowing. So excited to see what's next!
A great big thank you to everyone who came to the Sugarloaf Craft Festival in Chantilly, VA! What a positive experience--meeting new artists and being welcomed by a new show. Looking forward to the next one in Oaks, PA in March.
