Well I made it to Week Ten !

Hi Everyone!

     I know I missed last sunday but I went home to Detroit to visit my family. We Need Family!  

     I did though still have a piece to show you all. It already has a home / sold but I wanted to share it with all of you anyway. This piece is called an "Window Box  with a View". I have to admit I love Working with Copper!!!! I love how the copper works wonderfully with patinas and how adding texture to the metal's surface really give character to the drawings and to the designs. It's Cool! 

     Well I have been working on more bracelets. I will show some of them soon! Take care everyone and have a GREAT WEEK!!!!

Week Nine ! So Fine!

Week Nine! So Fine!

Well week nine has been a "Learning Experience" Literally. I love taking classes and participating in workshops. I think that it truly helps me to expand my creative process which helps me to create original designs that are truly unique. If you don't try new techniques your creative process doesn't grow. 

Where I work we have a lot of classes and workshops. I thought I would partake in one called "Wire Wrapping a Tree" and I loved it! It was really fun. I wanted to give a shout out to Angie Stamper - my teacher who was Great ! Also I will be  taking two more classes this week and I will show you all how they went this Sunday. Well I hope you all enjoy " The Tree of Life" pendant.  Everyone have a great week and Keep Learning Something New !

Take care !!!

Week Eight goes "Bollywood"

Week Eight goes "Bollywood"

Well this piece was a lot of fun to create. Combining India's beauty, the warmth of brass, and the rich colors of red jasper into this little gem was labor of love. So welcome to the family "Bali Beauty". I have been working on some new sketches and as time goes on I hopefully will be able to work on those new pieces as well. I also have to make up some more bracelets so I can be ready for upcoming shows as well. Well that's all for now. Take care and have a great week!
