It's a busy time of year....a holiday open house at Art in the Village at Casey Jones is planned for Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. The gallery is doing very well and all of us showing our artworks there hope you'll stop by! I'm one of the top three sellers! I'll also be taking in some new silk ribbon wrap choker/bracelets, earrings and pendants on Saturday.
Here's one of my new pendants, Swept Away, showing my work with both copper and silver, with apple jade and lapis lazuli. $110. I have both simple chokers of copper with silver touches ($50), as well as hand-dyed silk ribbon ($18), for those who'd prefer to pick up the colors of the stones and have a soft ribbon to wear. And you could certainly have both! I'm designing earrings to match the pendant.
Jackson is an amazing small city that offers so much in the arts! Tonight, I'm supporting the Jackson Symphony League's auction with a donation from my new Got Rocks Collection. This is my signature open neck, front closure design, created with labradorite, copper, silver, amazonite and a hint of azurite, signed, of course, as RCF, Reconfigured Art Jewelry. Design No. 2. And there is only one. So I hope you'll visit the auction, bid, and enjoy the Pops Concert as well!
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.
