Funky Jewelry

I had a request to make a funky set of jewelry . So I went to the bench and looked at all the stones, including some that were tests for my learning experience. I've been wanting to do something different and out of the ordinary. I think this will turn into a series for 2009. I plan to have my sketch pad out and active over the holidays and have a few other ideas that I want to get on paper.

Now that I have my new work area for clay in the garage and my slab roller I am ready to try some new stuff! What a difference a nice little work space makes. I used to have to keep everything in boxes in the closet (clay, glazes, bisqued stones, etc) then pull them out and work on a folding table in the den. I hope this new found space will improve my creativity!

JLK Jewelry studio will be closing on Friday till after the New Year, but as always I will be checking email, and work is available at Jugtown and many other galleries aroun the state!

Busy Weekend

It was a busy weekend at the Kiln Opening. People were lined up in the morning and throughout the day it stayed busy! After things calmed down mid morning Wes and I went over to David's. He had some gorgeous pieces! One of these days...... (know anyone that is looking for a house and land outside Winston??)

Nancy invited us to stay for kimchi stew with Karen and Dan. It was great and good for the bad cold I have been carrying around with me. Why don't I have my camera when I need it?!

This is the busiest time of the year for many of us. I have several orders for holiday gifts and am grateful for all of them! So thank you my loyal patrons! And I hope to post something fun here soon!!
