Holiday Fair Season is upon us...can it be true?

Hello Wire Harmony supporters!

I have been super lax with my blog, as you can see (last post July!) but that doesn't mean I have been slacking in the jewelry-making department!  In addition to my usual pieces, I have been working on my metalsmithing skills. I have learned a lot, but really it's only the tip of the iceberg.

I am excited to be taking part in a bunch of fairs and markets coming up.  I will be doing the Talmadge Art Show for the first time, and feel very honored to have been selected.  I will also be doing Kate Sessions Handmade in the Park for the first time, and I love this beautiful park that overlooks the ocean.  I will be back for a second time at Ray Street at Night, which was a hoot last time.  The crowd was amazingly eclectic.

Come one, come all, enjoy all these fairs have to offer.  The fairs I have selected this year are for handmade goods only, which means a lot to me.

Keep Scrolling to see photos of my new work! 
And thanks for reading.  Have a great holiday season.

Oops...Having too much fun!

Hello folks,

I realized it had been a while since my last blog post, but I didn't realize that two months had zipped by!  End of school, summer camps, trips, my kids' and the hubby's B-days.. what else can you pile up?  Amidst all the summer shenanigans, I have been doing some fun custom pieces and filling orders.  I also started metal smithing classes at Whaley Studios in Hillcrest.  The sky is the limit there...totally free reign.  Major learning curve!  I am loving it. 

I've got a few more jewelry classes on the schedule as well at Bead Gallery in Scripps Ranch/Mira Mesa in August.  Doing Viking Weave Pendants, Viking Weave rings and Crystal Ladder Bracelets.  See link below for dates.  Thank you to my awesome friends: Lora Conover, Gemma White and Christine Kachulis for your patience during a crazy class at the Bead Gallery in May!
