Last Show…


Had my last outdoor show in Door Co. over the weekend. It was at Fineline Design Gallery in Ephraim: Townline Art Fair with 40 plus years running now… It’s a beautiful show with about 75-100 artists. This weekend in Door Co. is the busiest of the year with tourism, fall colors at full peak. I went to the show with my daughter and Kate and two other artists: Tammy Rae Wolter and Lissa Flemming. We had a great time. It made the weekend easier as well with tent help, snoring, and Kate our coffee runner….and don’t forget marketing eagle eye. Glad to be done with outdoor shows. It was 32 degrees each morning when we arrived and all of us had on boots, coats and gloves. Tammy even brought a propane heater for her tent. It was pretty sweet.

Just randomly tossing pics up of things I made for the show. These earrings I made for a good customer. She actually wants a necklace but I wanted to start small and see if she liked these first before we dive into a huge calla lily necklace.  Earrings Link: https://www.etsy.com/listing/207171871/calla-lily-pearl-earrings-sterling?ref=shop_home_active_3

Here we all are on our way out of town. We stopped at my favorite Mexican Restaurant, ‘Hot Tamales’ in Sturgeon Bay. My daughter is taking the pic. Left to right; Lissa, Me, Tammy and Kate.


This is Friday evening when we just arrived and were setting up. Thanks Door Co. for another great summer, not just for jewelry but for fun, scenery, parks, water, beaches, sunsets, woods and trails. It is a special place.


Happy Halloween… I make one of these every October. It sold to a tiny little petite lady with two super cute little kids… go figure… she loved it ~ you just never know?

Next show Nov. 30th 9-3pm RedBird Holly Craft Faire in East Depere High School. Inside ~ nice and warm.

Ruth’s Ring

DSC_1289Just finished Ruth’s ring…. It is a wedding band of 18K Gold, 7 sapphires (she has 7 children), and sterling silver. The interior of the band reads ’22 years from tomorrow’ and ‘I love you more…’ The band spin freely on the ring. The following picture is of Steve’s ring. The man behind the plan….


Steve’s ring is 5 bands of 18K Gold that spin freely on the band. His ring also reads ’22 years from tomorrow’ on the inside of the band. I have all the pics to follow of the making of these rings…


This is setting up the sizing of the bands….


Sapphires Ordered… Yummy!

The soldering of the bands after the wording was stamped on the inside while the metal was flat.


Matching up stones and making sure they are the correct size for the tube bezel settings. Measure my gold out for the other bands…



Soldered these together—then make them round. When These rings have to fit on a spinning band I make them 3 sizes larger then the band they will spin on.

Very cool carved jade stone bead. I bought a set of these at a bead show yesterday and made a leather ‘pull’ for my bell that is outside on my porch. It calls my kids in from the woods/river.


Happy Spring. All the snow finally melted a couple days ago. It has been a long winter. Nice to see the sun.
