Busy, busy!

The snow is all gone, the birds are chirping, the grass is green... could it be... spring?! Along with the longer, warmer days spring also brings art show season. This year I will participate in three amazing shows: the Walker Art Mart, Art-A-Whirl, and close the summer with the Uptown Art Fair. I am ecstatic to join the ranks at these prestigious events and am working hard to bring a fresh new collection to show. Here's another sneak peek to jewels: layered blackened sterling silver chain with lustrous pearl accents. It is so delicate but still has a great toughness to it as well.

New Jewels!

Check out the new pieces focused on asymmetrical elements and gemstone accents. The above earrings are part of the "Tree Ring" collection with the outlines mimicking the year rings of a tree. The below necklaces are the starting points to a new collection. I love the contradiction of the white, lustrous pearl mixed with the bold, black silver.
