Winter Violets

Although I only participated in a few art festivals during 2020, I tried to maintain a decent level of creative production. The most fun was experimenting with Sterling Metal Clay, sculpting leaf pendants using tiny garden foliage imprints.

My kilns work overtime firing glass, pottery and Metal Clay. These are a few of my violet leaves, forever transformed into Sterling jewelry, displayed in one of my handmade glass bowls.

Warm wishes for a wonderful new year filled with hope and good health. Looking forward….

Fall inspiration…

Although I have no shows scheduled for the foreseeable future, I feel inspired each day to continue creating.

One of my favorite new discoveries is called MetalMagic- a truly fun way to transform garden leaves into wearable Sterling silver pendants.

Small leaves pressed onto the thinly rolled clay are kiln-fired to 1600 degrees Fahrenheit for 60-90 minutes. This allows the binder to burn away, leaving the silver, which is .960 pure -slightly higher than Sterling. Upon removal from the cooled kiln, I clean, oxidize, and polish the silver leaves.
