More New Work

here are some more new pieces, all of which were showcased at my recent fall show. the first photo is some precious metal clay pendants i made from molds i took of old buttons. the middle one came off of my grandmother's coat! the second pic is a piece called corset. third is a new bracelet from the pure geometry series (shapes are near and dear to my heart) and fourth is another granulated pendant. this one paired with a stunning carnelian disk. some will make their way to etsy so keep checking back if you are interested. that, or email me direct. have a great day!

Goodbye Dear Friend

He Is Gone

7 Kislev 5768

9:42 a.m. PST

Joel fought very hard, but there were too many infections with too many contradicting cures. He chose to fight with everything the doctors had. His soul hummed inside of him with the rhythms of the ventilator and monitors, and when it broke free I know our prayers carried it upon wings of song back to his Creator. Shalom Joel.

Distressed Granulation

for lack of a better term :) basically i've been on an oxidizing kick lately. in a fit of destruction, i took some of my granulated pendants and hammered the snot out of them! kind of liked the effect and went from that to darkening the recesses to get this. really like the way they've turned out. another crappy photo, but all i've had time for this close to the show. also did some small rings in the same vein. will try to post those tomorrow. cheers!

Tree Cutout Completed

okay, some of you may remember the tree cutout i did a while back. i finally turned it into something! how the pressures of a show will get you offer your posterior. i soldered it to another piece of sheet silver, darkened it using liver of sulphur and then hung it on a chain. the photo is crap, just a quickie taken in the studio with bad lighting, but you get the idea. better pic will eventually make its way to the website. i'm guessing by osmosis since i am so bad about updating it!

Which Tarot are You?

You are The Tower

Ambition, fighting, war, courage. Destruction, danger, fall, ruin.

The Tower represents war, destruction, but also spiritual renewal. Plans are disrupted. Your views and ideas will change as a result.

The Tower is a card about war, a war between the structures of lies and the lightning flash of truth. The Tower stands for "false concepts and institutions that we take for real." You have been shaken up; blinded by a shocking revelation. It sometimes takes that to see a truth that one refuses to see. Or to bring down beliefs that are so well constructed. What's most important to remember is that the tearing down of this structure, however painful, makes room for something new to be built.
