Shop Update!

A ton of earrings and pendants in my new series, Springflower, and lots of rings are now up for sale at my shop. I’ve also updated the gallery and added a set (with more to follow).

Mock Display Thoughts

I’m working on some display ideas for an upcoming show at the local Girl’s Night Out fundraiser for Transition House. Click on each photo for notes at my Flickr stream. I’d love your thoughts!

Chakra Bracelet Prototype

I’m working on a Chakra bracelet as the first in what will hopefully be a series of metaphysical-based jewellery, to be sold at A Whisper of Crystals, a Reiki and IET healing place in Millville.

Birthday present pour moi

My birthday was the first of this month and I decided I needed something fabulous to wear. Aquamarine is (one of) my birthstone(s) and I bought this strand of chips at my reiki healer’s with the intention of making something for myself; my throat chakra is all messed up and …

Jewellery Fabrication Class

What a great course! I made a ton of things, and learned a lot. Like, I know how to solder now! WITH FLAMES. I am invincible! This ring keeps migrating from my ring finger to my thumb, on both hands. I love it so much. I torch-soldered every single joint and …

Collar

I took a jewellery fabrication course over the past two weekends. But while I’m processing photos of those, check out this collar I dreamed up one day at work and just finally sat down to make: I’m exceptionally proud.

I’m taking a Jewellery Fabrication course over the next two weekends – 24 hours in total – and I’m totally psyched. Over the weekend I attended the Atlantic Craft Trade Show, a journey that helped me clearly define the direction I’m going in by highlighting what I do NOT want …

Taking inspiration from the lovely Kate Holly-Clark, including her beautiful trees; and from various other sources, I searched for and found some online instructions on how to create a four-strand braid. Most of them were really verbose and devoid of any visual aids; but I found this great hair braiding …

For Elinor

My friend the lovely Elinor got me a great deal on some wholesale beads a few times; in return I promised her a couple of pieces with her materials. You’ve seen The Earth in the Night Sky already; here’s the second piece, with her gorgeous labradorite cabs. A shot of …

Basic Wire-Wrapping Classes

I’m putting on two wire-wrapping classes in the next month or so. First, with the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design, fourth one down the page. Second, with Richmond County Municipal Services, front page of their newsletter, baby! Fun!

Necklace Crown

I think I screwed up my camera settings; pictures keep coming out all grainy and I have to resize and de-noise and brighten and colour correct, and it’s no fun whatsoever. But! Look! A necklace that could be worn as a crown: And a commission for my friend Elinor, called …

Light Box!

I followed (vaguely) some instructions for creating your own light box today. Basically, I cut out the sides of a box, covered them in tissue paper, and inserted a piece of white cardboard for a backdrop. I still need to play with it, but I’m very pleased. At first, I …
