New Rings: The Oyster Series

As some of you know, I have been a vegetarian for many years. When I started making jewelry, I knew there would never be any animal products involved – no leather (I don’t wear any leather myself), no bone, no silk, no pearls. Actually, as described in Victoria Finlay’s Jewels: A Secret History (a fantastic …

New Spacelets and a New Style of Earrings

What’s that? What the hell are ‘Spacelets’, you ask? Well, I’ll get to that in a minute.   See, I wasn’t kidding when I told you I was working like crazy (or when I said “color, color, color!”). Does this look like a lot? I’m not sure it does. There are still lots of beads …

New Jewelry and Some Local News

Okay! I finally got my gas and oxygen refilled, and I’m back in business! Well, sort of. This weekend my wifi decided to break down, because for some reason I can’t seem to reach a point where everything just works. Argh. So, after a day of pacing around nervously and not knowing what to do, …

My attention span came back for another visit!

Or maybe this set is more of an indication of lack thereof? Anyway, it’s another big set, and it’s on Etsy. I can imagine lots of design possibilities for these. No, seriously, I am imagining possibilities. If you want them, take them away from me now! ūüėČ    

Blah, Blah, Blobs

For the past couple of weeks, I haven’t had as much motivation for torching as usual. The days are becoming hotter, as they always seem to do around this time of year – those weeks when summer suddenly drops down on you out of nowhere, and you walk around thinking, “Was it really this hot …

Blowing Bubbles

After a couple of days of¬†obsessively blowing shards,¬†¬†I began to realize that some of the glass bubbles I was blowing were actually quite pretty, and it seemed a shame to keep smashing them. What to do, what to do… I decided it would be a good time to try some blown vessels. The first couple …
