If you need metalsmithing classes PLEASE sign up for the Bead and Button Show in Milwaukee WI. Many of the classes are filling or full so don’t delay. My own class is Tuesday June 5th, Make Your Own Findings, beginning soldering class with Joy Kruse #b121456  There is a link to the Bead and Button on the side of this blog page. Also will be at the Bead and Button as a vendor which is really exciting so come and see me in Milwaukee June 7,8,9,10 ~ should be a great time.

Got a lot going on in the shop these days. I have inventory going out to stores for summertime stock and new ideas for regular product line design. When I make earrings I may try a dozen designs. Only 3 or 4 of the designs I will decide to put in inventory as a stocked design and not mean it to be one of a kind. I don’t do this with a lot of necklaces unless they are castings. Most of the necklaces are one of a kind, but earrings are fun purchase and often a gift purchase and I have several designs that are always in stock. 75 items will be out the door to The Flying Pig Gallery this coming week….. and wrapping up a bunch of show dates. Help! Paperwork overload!

The earrings are a little copper dish with sterling drops sitting on the edge, a post style earring that is not the typical for me and small which is also not typical for me. In the slideshow the first picture is of a 3×3 inch pendant that is dear to me… it sold yesterday to a woman in Long Beach California. Got a tear in my eye literally because that piece just makes me smile looking at it but it’s going to a good home. The second pendant I just made this week and love it. The orange, pink hues to the stone are just beautiful and the style of the pendant is very feminine…

I am off to set all those stones in my stone tray… one down ~ 100 to go!

    AHHHH!!!! So inspiring. I love the pieces. I adore your attention to detail and all the little things. I have some tools for you and I will be in touch shortly. 🙂 I can’t wait to get back into my studio and working. Now that Canada is done with, I hope to be in there after I get done with Spring break with the girls. Good luck setting all those stones. 🙂
