Happy Happy Days : First solo show at Japan !

This is most luckiest and beautiful thing happening soon.
The gallery "Tsuibu" let me have two weeks solo show from April 7th ~ 19th.
The tricky part is that Tsuibu gallery is in Kyoto, Japan.

I know, I know.
It is only 14 hours by airplane from the U.S. Piece of cake to stop by, right?
I do want you to have a post card, so feel free to ask me to send you hundreds of postcards!

500 Enameled Objects

One of my pieces is in the new Lark book on enamel, so I received my complimentary copy a few days ago. It is just as nice as the other books in this series. I already have my "faves" and am sure I will have even more as I page through again. Sarah Perkins has selected an amazing body of pieces in a wide range of styles - the images are wonderful and inspire me to get back to work... Thanks to all involved!

Website

Finally...well, almost. The website is a work in progress, but the most recent work is up!
Somehow I always neglect to photograph each piece properly. So not all of the work is there, but a pretty good representation anyhow.
Could it be that I am working madly to the wire??? I KNOW I am not the only one guilty of this.

Baltimore ACC show

Well, another ACC show is behind me and this one was much better than I anticipated. I attribute it to having mostly new designs, some new display elements, and good help in my booth. It's nice to know that people were actually out there shopping.

What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge? See for yourself!

Starting Points

My love affair with fine metals started several years ago when I was able to take a Young Artists Workshop at Moore College of Art and Design.  After my first jewelry class and I was pretty much hooked.  I continued chasing the dream and received my BFA in Studio Art, concentrating in Metals from Rowan University, while studying under Jill Baker Gower. I am grateful that I was able to find my focus, enameling, and really develop a body of work within the few years following my gradation.…See More

Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret.
