I'm excited to announce I'm now selling some of my jewelry creations in a lovely boutique in Keene, New Hampshire. The gallery is called ECLECTICA Artisans Shop, and it is run by a lovely lady - Judy Bemis - photo below...

You can find this shop just off Central Sq at 17 Lamson St. This shop features handcrafted jewelry, pottery, felted and knitted items, stained glass, paintings, photo cards as well as fragrant soaps, and bath products and much more - And, some of my unique handcrafted jewelry!

Stop in and enjoy the handiwork.

Below are several of my jewelry creations which you can purchase

ECLECTICA boutique.

PMC Workshop

On October 18th (seems like yesterday) I took an all day workshop taught by Marissa O'Brien on using PMC+. It was a wonderful experience. I learned a great deal about precious metal clay and how it is manipulated. To me it's like magic...You work with the clay, allow it to completely dry - and then you fire it in a kiln. WA! LA! - You have almost pure silver in the form of jewelry. It's awesome.

The workshop took place at a rubber stamp store called Absolutely Everything in Topsfield, MA. This store does have just about anything a stamper could desire and more, lots of stuff for craftors, too. I love the fact guest artists come there to do workshops.

Here is a photo of the PMC+ clay before it is fired. Two of these soon to be pendants are from a mold I made using a wonderful shell I have from Italy.

Below are pictures of completed pendants that I made at the workshop.
