Copper and Pearls

Spring 2013


Since I closed my etsy store some time ago, you can buy pieces directly by sending me an email or commenting on my blog. Just tell me what the caption was or describe to me what you liked and I can give you price and availability. Many have figured this out but for those who have asked there it is.  Art and Commerce are like a horse and carriage?

So a couple years ago I put an end to The Traditional Easter Basket and decided that entry to the family Easter meal (buona Pasqua!) would be a home made Peep’s Diorama.  I had heard someone mention that the Washington Post or someone had done a story on these kookie dioramas, it sounded like fun. I wish I had taken more photos last year but I did snap a few this year.  I think this new tradition has caught on!  The entries were hilarious.  They are truly an insight into the eyes of the makers… Who do you vote for? Please do not penalize contestants for the lack of photography skills on my part.

And yes, I do realize Easter is long gone…I am a little behind and out of sequence.  Perhaps an insight into me.

Dia de los Muertos earrings

Dia de Los Muertos earrings

It’s been some time since I have posted. Fact is the summer is just way too short up here on the prairie and in addition to that I started a new Job in May.  That said, winter is blowing in and it’s that time of year when I get hunkered down in my little room and get back to making things.  Here are a few of the 20 or so pair I made last week for Dia de Los Muertos.

Hope to have something else new for you by next week!


Well the big spring sales are behind me and I am busy making new things.  I will also be selling work at a beautiful and relatively new salon in Edina called BESPOKE Hair Artisans.  Check them out, great stylists and spa treatments in a beautiful environment and free parking to boot!  Other than new earrings and working to pay the man (or is that men?) there is gardening to be done and sunshine to be enjoyed! Hope you are doing some enjoying yourselves…

So we (OK, I) decided we would start a new tradition in lieu of the old Easter Basket.  When I heard about Peep Dioramas from a woman I work with I thought it would be just the thing for this twisted group of family and friends.  Not sure where I have been that I hadn’t heard about them before but you might enjoy the entries from our first annual foray.  Next year I am hoping for more entries too.  Those not in attendance this year were missed!

…when she said the older you get the faster time goes!  I am trying to get work photographed and documented before I sell it these days.  So much to learn with my computer and camera!  Anyhow, I made this pair of earrings for my niece from a treasured piece of broken jewelry with the help of my son who is much better than I with a jewelry saw.  I think she will love them.

Hope to update things more often!

Earrings


We started the New Year off with a bang surrounded by friends, good food and libation and lot’s of laughs.  And at midnight, thanks to a local neighbor association we could see fireworks from our living room window to boot.  During the evening there was some rum fueled conversation about resolutions and such and I committed to do a drawing a day in 2012.  Yes, I had been thinking about it because when I made the attempt 8 years ago I fell a little short.  Wish me more luck this time please! Other promises were made for “a day” feats like: a poem, a blog post, a drink (think alcoholic beverage), and some that will remain open to your imagination.  I am wishing us all well and am putting no pressure on myself as to the quality of the finished product, it’s more to establish better habits as I see it. Below is a photo from friend, neighbor, graphic designer and photographer Andrea of the Lentil soup I made to start the year with good luck. Photos of the daily doodles…soon come.

Lentils for good luck!


It has been an interesting year and I am happy to be healthy and surrounded by great people (related and not) that I love spending time with, you know who you are.  Thankfully the winter has been mild so far and the sun is still shining most days.  I am in the process of sorting, trashing and re-org-ing my workspaces and am giving myself until the end of January to do it…it’s a big job.  I hope to see and or hear from you in the coming months and I aim to post more regularly as I have many projects to share as I get better with my camera and photograph them.

Attached is a photo from a Holiday party of my dear friend Debra wearing a collar I made some years ago with some pieces of my grandmother’s jewelry.  Hope the New Year is a healthy and happy one for us all!
