TAKE A WRIST

I am so excited and proud to announce that on 6 October 2016 I won Best of Show AND the People's Choice Awards at the 2nd Annual Out of the Box Jewelry Challenge sponsored by the Bellingham Metal Arts Guild and the Jansen Art Center. The reception was held at the lovely Jansen Art Center in Lynden Washington.

I really did not expect to win the show after I saw the pieces I was up against.  The other artists had stunning pieces, so much talent, beautiful execution and creativity, I was sure I was out of the running. As they announced the winners in the various categories I contented myself with the fact that I'd won last year and that, although not a winner this year, I was happy with the work I'd done. I was stunned when they announced the People's Choice Award and called my name! What an honor to be chosen by my peers, Thank You all! I was sure that was it so when they called my name again for Best in Show I couldn't believe it. I was so close to tears, incredulous that I'd won. What a thrill and again, an honor to be chosen! Thanks to the Judges and all those responsible for making the event come together so beautifully. A special Thanks to Judi Gauthier for the challenge inception and her tireless work making the event a huge success.

MY BOOTH AT ART ON THE GREEN IN COEUR D'ALENE IDAHO

This past summer I decided to try a couple of art fairs and set up a booth at the International Art and Music Festival in Blaine, Washington in June and at Art on the Green in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho in August. Meeting fair goers and artisans was a wonderful experience. My jewelry had a warm reception and I really enjoyed myself.

TINY HOUSE SERIES

I was inspired to create these little whimsy's by friends who run The small House Catalog . They are a wonderful couple who design small homes and are in the process of building a small home of their own doing almost all the work themselves. Check out their website for free plan downloads and follow their blog to see the house come together!

MY STUDIO

I am so lucky to have this new beautiful studio. We had a garage built over the past year and decided to use the upper space for my studio rather than just storage. What a great decision! I now have this amazing space and I don't keep Mr Music awake when creativity strikes at odd hours of the night.
