Update #14

A Jolly New Year

1 comment

With the New Year here I wanted to reflect on the great happenings of this past year, more specifically my Kickstarter project.

Having a successful Kickstarter project was definitely one of the highlights from the year.  It allowed me to keep producing work, connect with some great people, and even get some new equipment for my studio.  So Thank You to all supporters!

Since my funding I have been consistently making work, and in that time there are a few pieces that I would like to share as they were special projects to me. 

The first piece is a Birch Cuff made for one of my Kickstarter supporters. =) The cuff is sterling silver with gold inlay and tiger's eye stones. Love it!

Another favorite was the Birch Tree Pendant I created which gave me a chance to work with white gold and diamonds.

One last piece to share is a more recent version of the Silver Orchid Necklace, this one is mini size and I find it super adorable.

Update #13

On the move...

Comment

Well I realize that it has been a bit since I made my last update, sorry about that.  However it has been for good reason. My husband and I had been looking to relocate for a while and well, we finally found the ideal place. So over the past two weeks, after packing up everything, including our studios and kitty, we made the eight hour drive north and are now living in a lovely little house in the U.P. At this point we are officially unpacked and back in business!

With all that, there was a little bit of a delay with getting the last few rewards out.  So for the handful of you who may not have received anything, don't fret, your package is on the way! 

Also, with the relocation I am now on the search for a spot to show my new line of jewelry once it's completed. I still hope to have the show in October, but will keep you posted on the details. 


Update #12

Shipping Away..

Comment

I spent the week shipping out my first round of rewards.  My studio floor has become an array of boxes, jewelry and shipping envelopes. I just have a few more packages left. So for everyone who's estimated delivery was June you should be receiving your packages shortly (it may be a week or so for those of you overseas).  I would love to get feedback as you received them!

Next week I will begin putting together all the rewards for those with the estimated delivery in July.  I hope to start shipping those out mid July. 


Update #11

Silver, Supplies & Art Fairs!

Comment

Hi All,

Since my last post I have been making jewelry like crazy!  With some of my funding I bought a new torch tip (which has been super helpful), a soldering block and lots of pretty Silver!  


So with all these materials I have been making piece for my backer and getting ready for an event I am participating in.  Which brings me to the next thing..  

If you are anywhere near Indianapolis this coming Saturday June 9th, then check out the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange. I am going to have a booth there and it looks like there are going to be a lot of other great artists and musicians!

And after all that is wrapped up this weekend, I will be starting my first shipments of rewards out to my backers early next week!
