Mary Nicolas Cross was made with a special person in mind….. (Not sure that the Nicolas is spelled correctly – might be an h in there I am guessing.) These people win the most gracious award for being supportive to artists. I see them at almost all of my shows. They are attentive, kind and interested. Thank you both. This cross is in honor of them. I made two other crosses both smaller than this one but don’t have them photographed yet. This cross is really a statement piece of jewelry. The links are handmade and hammered as well as the cross which is 3.5 inches long.
This is the next stone I am working on and it’s going to be wonderful! How can it not be with the stone being so amazing! Not sure I will get it done before Sunday. Sunday is Appleton’s Art in the Park. It is only on Sunday and in downtown Appleton near Lawrence University. They close off an entire block surrounding the park and let us all celebrate in the street. It’s great and festive. Stop and say hi if you can.
Last word: Congrats to fellow jeweler Michael Thee also from Wisconsin for winning Best of Show at Bergstrom Mahler Museum Artshow last Sunday. He deserves it. Awesome!
