Outside Looking In

In my busy life it is hard to find the time to truly sit down and make art. So, when it does happen I feel so inspired and excited that it perpetuates an avalanche of new work. Currently the piece that started the mental slide is pictured here. It is a brooch made of sterling sliver, found twigs, robin egg shell (found broken on the ground), pearl and amazonite. I love this piece! I hope that you will find it equally inspiring and want to run out and make art. Currently I am working at a feverish pace creating new one-of-a-kind pieces for my upcoming shows around the area. Here is a sample of what is to come as the HOLADAZE approach.

12/7 - Face Metal Design Holiday Party, Eat, Drink and be Dazzled!! Thank you party for all that support Face Metal Design.

Crafty Scene

It's official, my very first Crafty Bastards was a hit! The day was long and slightly overwhelming but I am glad to have been invited to come along. Heck, I wouldn't have even been there if it wasn't for Spencer, his Team 8 Press really has him busy with different craft fairs and events, literally every weekend for the next few weeks( hint, hint, check out the link so you don't miss the upcoming shows). So, the festival was fun and super-busy with so many awesome vendors, music and some food that I could smell. We were so busy that it was impossible to get much further than a few tents down from our own. So here's a shout out to both my families that came to support me and good friends that always know how to make me smile, thanks for the perpetual support and love, even though I only got to see you for a millisecond. Also, many thanks to all the new peoples that thought Face Metal Jewelry was awesome enough to buy some of your very own! This is one craft festival I really want to participate in again next year. The location was amazing, the staff were helpful and NICE and the event was well organized and marketed. What more can a crafty girl want? (hint, KILN)
