I took a break from the studio this summer. It started with a foraging for wild edibles class at our local folk school. It's like a veil lifted and I can now see the bounty of the woods.
I've been spending some time in the studio making chain. I decided to capture a bit of the process so you can see what I've been up to.
I wanted to be able to show you the size of jewelry on a real person. The most convenient person is ME! Yikes. I had to get over myself and just take photos of me, flaws and all.
I remembered that my phone has a camera, so while I was working the other day, I snapped a few photos to show you the process of making a piece of jewelry.
We were lucky enough to have Tonya Sell come to Ely to teach an acrylic painting class. I haven't made a segue away from my medium for quite a while and thought a little inspiration was in order.
I was an artist in the American Craft Council art show in St. Paul. It's stiff competition to get into this show and there was a LOT of jewelry there. Not a big fish in this one.
