Catching Up

September has been a super hectic month, with lots of events, a family illness, and trips out of town.  I got a little behind, but found a couple days this week to catch up on some custom orders that had been waiting on my bench for awhile.  This custom "Frida" ring was finished yesterday for a dear friend.  I love the rich turquoise and black shadows in the stone.  She picked it up today and luckily it was a perfect fit:)  Happy Autumn everyone!

Welcome Autumn

First of all, I want to extend a big thank you to Rochester for a great Clothesline Festival this year! I really enjoyed the show, welcomed many returning customers, and met a few new ones. I have to admit I'm looking forward to some down time later this fall, before the busy Christmas season arrives. My hope is to spend time making some boxes and architecturally inspired pieces in preparation for a show I will be doing in early 2017 at Edgewood Gallery in Syracuse. The summer season is so busy in Upstate NY that I sometimes lack for time to dive into projects that take several days, and those projects are my passion! More to come on that....

I did want to post a quick note to anyone in the Philadelphia area. Unfortunately because of an illness in my family I had to withdraw from the Rittenhouse Square show this fall. It was an excruciating decision, but I felt it was important to give my full attention to family and see my loved one through a very tough time. I hope to return to Philly in 2017:)
