Reflecting on Scottish Gallery Show

A year has passed since I was invited to show at The Scottish Gallery, a lovely space in New Town, Edinburgh - it was my first exhibition out of the country.  There were many things for me to learn about shipping and pricing for another currency, just the mechanics of it all.  The gallery staff were supportive and…

Latest completed commission

This project was my most recent custom order.  The client wanted me to make the ring for her using the little diamonds that she had inherited from her relative in old jewelry, so there was sentimental attachment to them.  It's a bold and beautiful statement and she loved the finished piece!…

Shape Series continues...

One of the newest pieces in the Shape Series is this brooch - the speckled pattern over the textured metal works well, I think.  Would like to find a venue to show these.

Heart Pendant

My custom work keeps me happily working with gold.  Here's the most recent piece - a pendant designed around a natural "heart" shaped Australian boulder opal.  She was very happy with the results.

Toshiko Takaezu 1922-2011

Toshiko Takaezu was an especially strong influence on my work as a potter in the early 1970’s.  She made wonderful large, quiet pieces and was a strong role model for me as a woman in a field then heavily dominated by men.  Her esthetic has continued to be a reminder to me as a metalsmith of the strength and beauty in seemingly simple organic forms.

Safe journey, Toshiko…

Spirals

The silver piece is how I figured out my pin catch on an open back before I jumped into it on the gold custom design. I have worked with fold-formed spirals on other pieces and still love the fluid quality.

Inspired Hands

Thank you to everyone who came and made our 13th annual show such fun - it was wonderful catching up with all of you, and meeting those of you new to the event. All the pieces I made were a big success, so it's back to the bench for the Maryville University show.

New Book

There's a new book called "Jewelry Design" that's just being published in China written by Shannon Guo. I cannot read a word since it's all in Chinese, but it looks like a nice book with lots of good pictures. My work, along with that of a lot of familiar faces, is featured through out the book. The piece on the far right of the cover is one of my brooches. Shannon Guo is Associate Professor, Jewelry and Metals Studio at the Fine Arts College of… Continue

Pop-Bead Neckpiece

This neckpiece recently sold to a veteran collector. The design was inspired by my childhood time spent creating jewelry with plastic "pop-beads", and is one of my favorite pieces.

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!
