The fall is here and gorgeous in upstate NY. Friday night we will be having a First Friday opening at Gallery 54. I will be presenting a few new pieces on the theme of Ravens and Crows. Some of them feature photographs taken at Oakwood Cemetery by my brother Kevin Blythe, who is a talented photographer. Oakwood is an historic cemetery a short walk from our house. It is a favorite place for crows to roost. These jewelry pieces incorporate cast branches and handmade sterling bezels with jeweler's grade resin sealing the photographs. Come and join us for a glass of wine and fine art if you can.

I've also been continuing to work on a series for my graduate seminar creating jewelry which honors different ancestors. Currently I'm creating a necklace that is based on the life of one of my great grandmothers. Stay tuned......
