I'm not a huge fan of pink in my everyday attire, but I am amazed at the beautiful pinks that nature creates in stones.  Every now and then everyone needs just a little pink in their lives right?  Pink is even better when it is paired with an antique abalone fly button:)  Below are three rings hot off the press from the studio.  They are sterling with pink sapphire, green tourmaline, and an antique button.

This necklace was also completed this week.  The stone is picasso jasper.  It looks so much like a dark forest of branches!  I knew immediately what it  needed to be paired with.  This one is hard to part with, as it is truly a one-of-a-kind.  It will be for sale at the Westcott Art Trail though!  We got some bad news on a car repair this week, so in other words, now is when I am selling some very favorite pieces to pay for my car:)

Twigs and Spectrolite

With many shows close on the horizon, I am hard at work trying to build up a nice inventory.  My first show is the Westcott Art Trail, which is being held this year in honor of my good friend Lauren Ritchie, who we sadly lost unexpectedly this winter.  She was a wonderful potter, and a super fun person, who also was one of the founders of the Art Trail.  This is a fun event that takes place in the Westcott/ University neighborhoods of Syracuse the first weekend in June.  I will have my booth set up at the home of Candace Rhea on Clarke St..  Follow the link to the right for more information!

Here are a couple new pieces finished recently.  This necklace of spectrolite (labradorite) and cast branches is a beauty.  It's funny how some stones come to life as soon as they are set in silver!
Below are sterling and lapis skull earrings, part of my Frida Kahlo collection.  Enjoy!
