Five Years + Revisited

Many art friends and their open houses, shows, experimenting and beads later here is a revisit between 2005 and 2010.
1. opera length commission with handmade beads/faces and semi-precious beads 2.  forged and folded copper hearts 3. hand sewn original felt butterfly pin 4. Sterling Silver hammered earrings  5.  Petrified Wood necklace  6.open house in Bradford  7.  herb tea 8.  BeadArt doll embroidered and dry felted
Focus has changed but, I feel my design push is still the same with palette and texture.  I miss working with felt and seed beads on art dolls and brooches but, the metal is part of my life.  Perhaps my obsessing about what my focus was is affecting moving forward with more intricate metal work.

What was your break through?

Mornings in the Studio

Mornings in the studio are filled with hope for what the day will bring and glorious light from the breaking day.  Coffee from a rich dark blend, freshly ground with added cream and honey helps motivate also.  Mornings are the best.

Energy of a studio

Visiting an artist's studio is always amazing to me actually everything about an artist studio from the purpose to all the tools needed to create their medium.  Being a tool collector tunes me in immediately.


Their open house was held during the Gingerbread Tour which included quite a few businesses and other venues through out the region.  The day was perfect!







We all have our photo designated areas for photo shoots.  Their photos always turn out glorious.  Take a gander here on their website.

Wonderful #madebyhand artisan work in the most idyllic setting.  Thank-you Charles, Rowan and Morgan for adding to our #PAWildsmade experience.
