Although this and many other wonderful summer shows are cancelled this year, I hope to be exhibiting my work later this year. In the meantime, be well and enjoy the summer!

More fun with vintage Sterling…

I found this very interesting (and substantial) vintage Sterling cuff bracelet online. I was a bit disappointed when I received it. Although it wasn’t terribly expensive, considering the solid Sterling is 5.75 inches long and over an inch wide, I didn’t care for the color of the stone and noticed the setting was incorrectly soldered and crooked! 

So thanks to my trusty bench grinder and favorite ball-peen hammer, I was able to transform and create a distinct new piece.  A touch more polishing and it’s good to go!!

My next show is the Glen Park Art Festival on July 27 and 28 from 10-5
