New Designs

So, I haven't been a very dedicated blogger lately and for that I apologize. Some good has come of this, as I've been having lots of fun in the studio. I've been experimenting with rivets, a coldworking technique, and it's been very rewarding. I've been adding bursts of color and vintage elements to my pieces, which makes them even more fun! I've also enjoyed adding more handmade chain into my pieces, which is great, because I LOVE making chain (I know, I'm crazy).

Riveting also gets me a little in touch with my pottery roots. I always enjoyed experimenting with surface treatments and textures and I see that coming through in my new work. Others have commented about this as well, including Baltimore Magazine (more news about that to come!).

Holiday Heap Tomorrow!

Sorry I haven't been posting very much the last week. I have been busy, busy, busy making lots of goodies for the holiday show season. Speaking of which, tomorrow is Holiday Heap! I will be showing my goodies at the B.E.S.T. (Baltimore Etsy Street Team) double table, along with some other very talented B.E.S.T. ladies including: VWStudios, Spa Therapy Works, Yummy and Co, Jill Popowich Designs and Green Star Studio. I will be selling many new styles not yet seen on Etsy.

In addition to our table, there will be 50 local and national artists selling nothing but handmade goodness. There will be a lot of talent there, so please do stop by!

Rock the Vote!

Once every four years we get the chance to have our say about who our next president is. I've always taken the responsibility of voting very seriously, especially as a woman. I think about all the women who came before me who didn't officially have a voice in our election process. But, no matter whether you are a man or woman, young or old, you should exercise your right to vote today. So what do you say? Get out there and vote!
