I was pleasantly surprised, this moring, to find my 6 page feature in “In Her Studio” magazine, by Stampington & Company! In the article I talk about how I got into metalsmithing, how I get out of creative ruts and of course; my studio – it’s glories and its challenges!
I love rearranging spaces – I was a visual merchandiser for 12 years so it’s in my bones! Rearranging shifts the energy and brings back life into a room… and to things; which in turn inspires the soul!
I made some impromptu espresso spoons for a set of espresso cups by Samantha Brown of Samatha Ceramics. What I love about Samanthas work is the spontaneity and primitive feel. When I started on the spoons I new I wanted to utilize her signature line-work that she hand draws onto each piece.
I finished up these simple and sweet vow renewal wedding bands last week and sent them on their way to a lovely couple this morning. There is always a special feeling you get when making ceremonial jewelry – a sense of duty and honor – not matter how simple the piece.
