Waste not…

Over the years I have found a variety of beautiful antique and vintage Sterling spoons and forks. My favorite are the highly detailed floral designs from the Art Nouveau era. I enjoy repurposing them into jewelry pieces, creating several keepsake pieces from loved one’s silverware.

Because I often only use the handle, I am left with the bowl of the spoon or the tines of the fork. Many these are just as ornate as their handles. It would be a shame to let them go to waste…

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….
