Because of personal matters my August post(s) are delayed. Mostly, there hasn’t been much new in my creative process. I’ve had to take some personal time to get my work/home/art lives sorted out but once I get everything a bit more settled I’ll be good to go with more creative and interesting pieces of jewelry.
For August I have been showing at City Art gallery (as I normally do) but this month I’m in a case as well as on the wall. My wall pieces are a part of the theme show “San Francisco”. They are a rainbow chainmaille bracelet/earrings set and a nice beaded set. I’m pretty happy with the pieces just as I’m thrilled to be in a case this month. I’m in a case with fellow jewelry artist Beth Wellington. She and I do very complementary pieces but very individual work as well. I truly enjoy working with Beth-she’s fun and always has interesting insights about more than just the jewelry work we both do.
In other news, I started working with a monthly event called the League. This is a monthly party/salon/cabaret at Mission Control. I work as the PR goddess and I’m enjoying it a lot more than most of my recent gigs. The people are pretty awesome and the people make all the difference in the world. For August I’m also going to be a part of the salon: the ABC’s of Accessories-tips and tricks to interesting and unique accessories. I’m going as a chainmaille jewelry artist (and PR goddess). This is something I can get into without thinking too much–I just have to figure out where to start…
