New Collections sneak peek

Okay so I usually release new collections in the spring but because of the general studio craziness that we’ve had this year (thanks to the Sweetheart Necklace) the new pieces never got released. I have a ton of new stuff though and I hired a new photographer, Stacy Ziegler who’s work I LOVE LOVE LOVE. So here is a sneak peek at the new photography style and a few of the pieces that will be online for purchase very soon. I promise…

“Sewn Jewel Earrings”

Silver and Golden Butterflies

Fairy Rings

I collect art, as I’m sure many artists do and my favorite pieces almost always involve fruit, juicy color and/or the female form. Mina Lucia has managed to incorporate all three of my favorites in this absolutely mouth watering photograph entitled “Susan’s Apples”

Metal Texture Stamps
We all know that I rarely make a piece that doesn’t have a word (or 5) on it but I am also a huge fan of texture. Last time I introduced you to the mill and the texture in relief that it creates. Today lets talk about inverted texture. All hail the stamp!

This is only a small portion of my wonderful stamp collection. I collect different letter fonts, sizes, numbers, designs, textures- whatever! It doesn’t matter, if it’s a cool stamp, I want it.

This dot texture (above) is one of my favorites, because it just adds a little unexpected interest to any piece.

The above shot has good examples of words and textures that I add to almost every piece.

A close up of a few of the design stamps. I use these less often… I think you have to be careful with some of the design stamps since they will push a piece into predictability if you’re not careful.
