Trunk Show in Buffalo

Hello friends.  I hope everyone is enjoying the leaves this Autumn.  I am ramping up my production in preparation for two events during the Holiday season.  The first is a Trunk show at Wildthings in Buffalo, NY at 224 Lexington Ave on Friday November 18.  The trunk show will be going on all day from 11-7 and will feature my a collection of my newest work, plus wine and snacks.  I hope some of you can make it!  The second Holiday event I will be participating in is the annual Plowshares Craftsfair and Peace Festival the first weekend in December in Syracuse.  For more information follow the link at the right!

Rainy Saturday

Malachite pendant, bumblebee jasper earrings, azurite necklace, and Royston turquoise necklace with a handmade chain. 
It's a rainy fall Saturday in Upstate New York.  It's also the height of Autumn leaf season and apple season.  Today my husband and I went on an adventure to Beak and Skiff Distillery in Lafayette, NY.  They craft cider, vodka, gin, and wines all from apples grown on their land.  It was a fun experience and we were surprised to find that vodka, gin, and wine can all be made from just apples!

There seems to be a revival of craft on many levels in the modern world, and this extends to foods and beverages as well as the usual products we think of as fine craft - ceramics, jewelry, etc..  I hope to see the trend continue!  On that note, above are some of the pieces that came out of my studio this week.  I'm working on some additional plans for November, including a possible trunk show of my work in Buffalo.  Stay tuned for more details:)
