Holiday temptations

I am bracing myself for a season of deserts and other empty calories that I should probably refrain from but will not. Somehow indulging goes along with Christmas and New Years, not really sure why its so hard to resist but maybe because I am celebrating having made it through another crazy year. Tonight I go to The ABWA Christmas party- will be fun! I made a great new necklace for the event- will get a photo up soon!

Holiday Happenings

My jewelry and nests are now in Plaza Arts Gallery in Healdsburg and will be there through end of January. Two recent trunk shows were very successful and fun, one in Nov. was called Jewelry, Wine and Chocolate and we had a great chocolatier, David Gambill from Sonoma Chocolatiers and Jen Stark from Stark Winery poured her fabulous Syrah and Viogner. In fact I will be at the Stark Winery holiday event selling my jewelry next week, Dec 7.
My Wishnests have evolved and I am now casting thenm in pewter, they are really lovely. Still working out some final details before taking orders. The feedback lately on my jewelry and nests has been quite encouraging and sales are strong. Looking into which wholesale shows to do next year and I am zeroing in on one in Las Vegas in May called ACRE, American Crafts Show.
My husband Peter is spending alot of time getting my work up on a few other sites like Etsay and Trunkt which specialize in handmade items and new designers. My website ois coming along..check it out at

Recycled Computer Parts?

These are all handmade one of a kind pieces and most are made from a very special process that uses alchemy to transform metal clay into 99.9% silver. This metal clay was created by a Japanese company using the small amounts of precious metals, silver or gold, from recycled computer parts. This is one of the aspects of this jewelry that I find to be special, nothing ever really leaves the planet, it just changes forms and the idea that we can turn waste into something beautiful is a great metaphor for how we can live on this planet and turn the destruction in a different direction. Creating beauty is what I love to do most, whether it is jewelry, sculpture, or interior design. I love to create and feel grateful that my creations bring joy into people's lives.

Email me if you are interested in purchasing, would like more info or would like a custom designed piece for yourself or someone special.
