Come see me!

I have two shows right around the corner and I’d love to meet some of you there!

The first is THIS Saturday – the Gunpowder River Artfest. This will be the second year for this show, and my second year participating! The venue has changed this year, we’ll be at Boordy Vineyards in Hydes, MD and it promises to be a GREAT time.

Artfest takes place June 4th from 11am until 8pm.

I’m inside in booth #4.

The second show is in Columbia MD – part of the Columbia Festival of the Arts which takes place June 10th – 25th.

I’ll be at ArtPark which takes place June 10th – 12th. I’ll be there all three days: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Outdoor ArtPark – located along LakeFest grounds and the hours are:

Friday, June 10: 5:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Saturday, June 11: Noon – 9:00 p.m.
Sunday, June 12: Noon – 7:00 p.m

I will be in booth #50

I’m looking forward to getting out of the studio and meeting many new friends. There is sure to be a lot of fabulous and I hope to come home with some new art for my new house!

I really hope to see you there!

Two New Lines

il_570xN.241650510

Transformations annnnnnnnnnnnnnd one not yet named. 😉  First there was Topography, then there came Transformations and now I have another in the works, but its just the very beginning stages.

Yes, sometimes I have an actual process!

So although I am still totally enraptured with the  Topography line –  I am never one to sit still long so I now have a new line in process entitled: Transformations.  You may have seen some of these already posted around.

Similar to the Topography line, I see the Transformations line being a commentary on life. Instead of looking at our journey as paths in relation to topography, the new Transformations line explores the concept of how we are transformed during our life. We grow and mature and change and become.

I have taken leftover bits and pieces of sterling silver and copper that were in the ‘scrap bin’, leftovers from other projects and the little edges that are cut away when making a piece of jewelry and I have transformed them into something new and wearable and completely beautiful! Select pieces will feature a small faceted stone.

Thinking about Transformation, for me personally, led to thinking about God and faith and how we are transformed as we seek God. I have long considered doing a line that is ‘faith based’ and that time has come! I am very excited to begin putting together a series of pieces that are tangible expressions of faith. Some will be literal and some will be conceptual but all will be incredibly meaningful.

My jewelry bench is in the process of being packed for the big move (I am moving in June!! although I am not 100% sure of where…) but as soon as I get settled, I will begin creating for the faith line which is yet to be named. For now I will be sketching ideas.

If you have any suggestions for a name for the faith line I’d love to hear it – or anything else you’d like to share. :)

I’m proud to be joining many other talented artists for the second time at the Gunpowder River ArtFest .

Last year was a really great time.

There was food and music and so many fabulous hand crafted items. Ranging from clothing to soaps to furniture and jewelry.

We did have a BIG rain storm right at the VERY end last year, as we were packing up to go home, but other than that – it was a GREAT day.

We are in a new location this year – Boordy Vineyards.
