Every day I try and do SOMETHING to move forward with my work. If, at the end of the day, I reflect and find that I have not done any work toward The Aficionado’s ... something-or-other, then I have not done anything to elevate myself and Aficionado Studios... and that is un-sophisticated.  As Aficionados, we must maintain a decent level of sophistication, you know...  So, while often frantic, working on non-aficionado projects in my studio, I make many idea-notes on the next step for projects that have been put on hold in lieu of other more pressing matters.  Eventually, I find time to follow through with my post-it note collection and have something of my own to be proud of.

 

 

This month I released the first phase of jewelry to grace "The Aficionado’s Jewelry Collection", the Driven series, which is comprised of jewelry using sterling silver cast screw heads.  

 

Above: assorted studs; below: stackable rings

The collection can be viewed online here.

 

The next series, working title: Access, will be released in November, and should give you access to some secrets we’ve been keeping...   


Hope this piques your curiosity.
