My loyal readers have undoubtedly seen a shift in my entries this summer…beads, jewelry, more beads… I have been making jewelry and at time selling it, since I was 15. It is the thing I kept for myself (and select friends and family!)…a hobby in a way.
That is changing. Over the past three years, I have been experimenting more and more with mixed media jewelry. Not so surprising , as I do MM sculptures and shrines. I am developing some ideas for shrines with jewelry components inside – look for them in 2010.
For now – I am creating mini tiles, my same techniques and symbols, on a wearable scale. I am glazing the first batch today… They will debut at Artsfest this coming weekend!
