Elements Unleashed Tomorrow

DSC_0086

Made this today…. I love it! The heart is a Jasper Stone…The nail comes from a walk with my daughter out to this old concrete structure on our land. The concrete structure was a wash tank for gravel in the 1920’s. There are still shoots coming of the side of it to load train cars with gravel and the train tracks are still in place beyond the concrete tank (it’s almost 2 stories tall and has 3 or 4 compartments in it so it’s like a building). We found this nail with a lot of other iron relics inside the building and around it. There is a lot shrubs and trees growing around everything so you have to hunt for your treasure!

Tomorrow I am heading to Elements Unleashed…. a boutique in downtown Neenah Wisconsin. I hope we hit it off and have a start to a great new relationship. I hope they will be a new retailer for Wild Prairie Silver Jewelry. I have been wanting to go there for about 10 months! That is what winter is for…making new things and developing new business. Thanks for having me Elements Unleashed. From the looks of the boutique I might leave there with a new wardrobe. They have awesome boots. I love boots.

Crazy Lace Agate Garnets… The stick is free to move, nice unexpected movement and it can’t go anywhere…it’s trapped. Link: https://www.etsy.com/listing/177446446/sterling-silver-crazy-lace-agate-stone?

This is a piece of quartz trapped in a piece of Tourmaline. The stone was great but this is a very unusual piece for me to make. For starters it’s a regular size… a size anyone would love to wear. The chain is 3 cables of sterling silver. I love it and could actually see it on a guy. Link: https://www.etsy.com/listing/177445737/sterling-silver-tourmaline-specimen?

Last but not least… huge oversized cross…. 3.5 inches long x 3 inches wide on an oxidized chain. It looks great long or as a choker. Link: https://www.etsy.com/listing/177455087/sterling-silver-huge-hammered-cross?

Wish me luck tomorrow. I hope it works out great. Would be wonderful to have a friend and store in the Appleton, Fox Valley Area. That is new territory for me and my art shows do well there so I’m crossing my fingers. I will post some pics of the store on my next post. Take care and caution in this freezing cold weather. It’s really getting to be a long cold winter. One like I have never remembered. Some good friends are heading to Tucson right now. I wish I was with them. Maybe next year. Good luck Tammy, Rick and Maggie. Enjoy the sun and stones for me. I miss you all. I can tell you are not is Wisconsin anymore. There’s a little piece of magic missing…

Mary Nicolas Cross

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!
