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
