About The Artist

My photo
I am a jeweler, a potter...an artist I suppose. I have been creating hemp, glass bead and wire jewelry since 1996 but have only been throwing pottery since the Spring of 2008. I plan to open my own gallery and workshop within the next five years but for now I make my work out of my home and sell in galleries and online. I sell my work to feed my hobby and because I am running out of room for my creations in the house. My art, like this blog, is in it's beginning stages and I hope that as my reader you will join me in my journey as an artist and enjoy it as much as I know I will!

Spring Has Sprung

Spring has sprung and tax season has ended! I survived through April 15th! So that means I'm back on the blogging scene everyone! I took a little break from everything once the season ended, I slept a lot and worked very little. But recently I've been catching up on my reading which included fellow artists' blogs and figured it was time to start writing in my own blog again as well. Also, yesterday I got a check from Pura-Vida, I'd sold two more pairs of bottle cap earrings and a pair of resin bead earring. Needless to say it was some encouragement to start creating again so I drug out the jewelry supplies and came up with this cute new earring design last night:

I also finished up some pottery that has been neglected and sitting patiently on my desk, waiting for my attention, for weeks. I painted the turtle and crab in these two Sand and Sea bowls:

I just can't help it, I love this design so much!

And finally, last night I took photos of all the glass bottom bowls I had originally made for Pura-Vida. I haven't decided if I'm going to list them on Etsy or bring them to Waynesville to sell in a gallery there.

So there you have it, a blog (hopefully) worth the wait. Thanks to all my readers for being so patient with me!
