Autumn in Upstate

We're heading into holiday season, and everything is busy as always. Autumn has been really beautiful here though. Neon tree colors, and lots of crisp sunny days. I went to D.C. recently with the SU Metalsmithing students. We visited an awesome contemporary jewelry gallery called Jewelerswerk. It's in Georgetown. Check it out!
Otherwise I've been up to my ears in projects for my grad class and custom orders. One of my projects is inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead, when they celebrate and remember lost loved ones. This cuff was inspired by that tradition, and also honors Frida Kahlo's last painting, "Viva la Vida" (Long Live Life).
Happy Autumn!
