Earrings vs. Necklaces…

30th January 2012 | 0 Comments

I’ve made lots of jewelry over the course of the last 9 years. Mostly I make necklaces and earrings…sometimes matching sets of necklace and earrings. As an artist who does sell my work and works to sell my art (figure that one out…) I have to work within societal rules of commerce…yep, economics. Buying and [...]


Internal and External transformations

30th January 2012 | 0 Comments

With the new year most people make new years resolutions. Mine was/is to simply take better care of myself. For those who know me personally, this month has been an interesting roller coaster of coming back from a dark place in my life. I felt like I had lost a lot of myself in the [...]


Love Hurts

27th January 2012 | 0 Comments

February. Most would think of St. Valentine’s Day, lots of chocolate, roses, etc. Me, I’m thinking about the City Art show that opens next week: Love Hurts. I’m a chainmaille artist, of course love hurts! I have hands that can tell insane stories of pliers callousing my palms, my nails have been chipped and ripped [...]


A day in the life…

15th January 2012 | 0 Comments

This week was not normal for me…not that ANY week is normal.

This past week has been less creating and far more networking and promoting my work and the [...]

Last summer I met Stephanie (Trixie) who started up the Trickster Art Salon which is an art show with entertainment, community, and all kinds of interesting. The name Trickster–think the Archetype of [...]

The long and winding road…

7th January 2012 | 0 Comments

I mentioned in an earlier post that I am continuing my involvement with City Art gallery this year (as if there EVER was a question that I wouldn’t). I feel I’ve spoken at length on a few points about City Art but haven’t given a fair talk on the gallery itself. So here you go. [...]


The cold season

5th January 2012 | 0 Comments

After the holiday season, I like many of my friends and even family, go through a lull where it’s still kind of dark, still kind of dreary, and still kind of cold. San Francisco doesn’t have much issue with the kind of cold–it’s a relative stable temp year round with exception of the wet season [...]
