I wanted to let my local customers know that if they haven't been to Art in the Village at Casey Jones Village, they should stop by to check it out! This new artists' co-operative had its grand opening a week ago and features about 25 artists in fine arts, pottery, jewelry, photography and more. At right you'll see one of my bracelets of amethyst and fluorite. The gallery's holiday hours are Wednesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. On my first Saturday at the gallery, I spoke with people from Russia, France and Canada, as well as several states. Then we also had new artists stopping by to ask how they can join, so there's a lot going on and we hope you'll check us out! Take the big kids and little kids to the train museum as well -- it's so amazing!
My first Got Rocks Collection choker and earrings set was selected for the University School of Jackson's Holiday Mart auction! Several of my customers have talked about their joy in gemstones and how much they relish jewelry that makes a statement. There's nothing quite like a gorgeous piece worn on a black gown! So here it is -- the first, and a one-of-a-kind piece. Let me know what you think! PS. The No. 2 Got Rocks set is of labradorite and amazonite, with copper and silver, also in an open-neck signature design. It will be featured at the Jackson Symphony League's auction coming up soon! Pictures will follow next week. And I've created so many new pieces, some that you'll see here will be at Arts in the Village, the new gallery located at Casey Jones Village in Jackson. Others are being reserved for private shows and two Arizona galleries. More on that later!
October was such an exciting month! First, my Reconfigured jewelry was accepted for the PBS TV station, wkno, for their "Art of Fine Living" auction. It ends today -- so if you want the jewelry, item 6637, or my brand new design, Rising Planet Charms (wine glass holders), item 6592, you need to bid today! Check out my pictures! My next great news -- I've been accepted for two Arizona galleries. I'm so thrilled I can hardly stand it! More on that in my next post! (And I'll share pictures of my new work.)
Since I created RCF in 2004, my jewelry designs have been featured in Art World News and on PBS TV "Tennessee Crossroads." I will be the featured artist at the Feminine Mystique Art Gallery in Tubac, AZ. in April 2013. My jewelry is shown in the Arizona Collector's Guide and has been chosen for many juried shows.
Auctioned at The Jackson Symphony's Crystal Ball: Necklace, pendant, earrings, bracelet of black-gold amazonite and the luster of labradorite with the power of copper and silver
Life's been a winding road -- isn't it always?
Welcome to my blog, where you'll travel winding roads of fantasy in art jewelry and in life. When I began this journey, I knew there'd be paths diverging in the woods and I'd wonder which one the Fates were marking for my footsteps. But there's always that grand adventure. I'll share a secret -- though I studied art, what I'm creating with my art jewelry is a gift. One morning I awakened from a dream with the concepts as clear as day. When I pick up the stones and wire and begin to work, what happens is something that cannot be explained. It just becomes. And then I know when it's complete. So come travel with me and I'll share the journey.
