Back to the studio after Irene!

We were very fortunate to only experience a little high water, but no damage to our home and property. Many people in NH and Vermont were devastated by the flash flooding. My heart goes out to them in their recovery process. Please consider a donation to the Red Cross for flood victims.

So, now the time has come to get back to work and catch up on some exciting new jewelry projects. Stay tuned ;)

Senior Art Clay Instructor, Gail Moriarty comes to the North Country

Last week I had the privilege of having Gail Moriarty of Nashua, NH as a student in my studio. Gail came to learn age old traditional metal smithing skills to add to her repertoire. One of our goals was to try to solder a sterling ring shank on to a piece of art clay, to be able to combine the two art forms. Gail went home (to her "camp") after her first day in the studio and created a  dragonfly in art clay, armed with nothing but a swiss army knife. The results were amazing! We had great success soldering the sterling silver shank to the dragonfly. Big YAHOOS! This will add endless opportunities to Gail in her designs.
