I took these photos a while ago and then things got crazy, so here's a quick blog post update. This particular small deco bangle is currently at the Lansing Art Gallery for their 2018 Holiday Market. I've been busy at work, with my house and dealing with stuff my parents are handing off to me as they downsize so I'm trying to slow down and deal with that. I've been extremely overwhelmed lately and am trying to just take things one day at a time.
If you follow me on social media you may have noticed a post about not making jewelry in 2019. I'm backed up on my larger works/ideas and making small "affordable" pieces have been a creative time suck. It's not what I want to be doing, so I'll still make jewelry, but pieces that I'm inspired to make, which will have higher price-points. I will take small commissions on a case by case basis, but in the long run it's not worth it for me.
I'm excited to be giving talks at 2 guilds in 2019 and 1 day and a half workshop with the Needlework and Textile Guild in May (which I believe is already full). These next few weeks I'll also be working on proposals for Convergence in 2020. i'll still do some pop-ups here and there and be supplying my current galleries, plus Crooked Tree Arts Center asked if I would show my jewelry there after having it at Sherri Smith's Retirement show "Woven Together."
