Catching my Breath

2014-06-07 15.15.12 crop

Summer has finally arrived and I am looking forward to time to putter, work on my house & garden, and of course work in the studio.

This past spring kept me very busy.  I continued working as a design team member for A Gilded Life, and have enjoyed the opportunity to create projects with the beautiful treasures they sent me each month.

Tutorials for those projects are available as part of their Gilded Girl Stash Society.  Check it out HERE for more info on how to join in the fun.

My creative relationship with the fabulous boutique Cowboys and Angels in Sykesville, Maryland continues to develop.  I have been able to make several more one-of-a kind pieced for them and have had great feedback (i.e. the pieces are selling!)

This is a new chapter in my life, and I am really loving the challenge.  My biggest problem is wanting to keep the stuff I make because I really, really like it!

Finally, my advance copy of the Summer issue of Jewelry Affaire magazine arrived in the mail yesterday.  So excited to have a 2 page tutorial article in this issue.  Here’s a sneak peak of my Affirmation Cuff Bracelet (page 12).

The photography of this magazine is just wonderful and I am very proud to be included in this publication.  It never gets old seeing my work in print!

Well, I’m heading out to my garden to enjoy what will more than likely be the only non-humid day of the summer. My antique roses look fabulous (sadly so does the nasty thistles that I can’t seem to get rid of!)

Happy Summer everyone! I can’t wait to see what marvelous adventures this summer will bring!
