13 magic days until the end of a successful Black+White show, and just in case (just in case) you missed it so far, check it out now!
These earrings sold a couple of days ago and have gone to two very happy people...
...but there are still a few one of a kind pieces available, like just one pair of the earrings below!
I had great fun playing around and improvising with these first black and white jewelry experiments for a BlacK+White Graffiti series, and was happy to launch five pieces on Artico this month!
And, among what's left, a pendant too...
Signed and numbered, on the other side.
The Black+White show at Artico is live!
Another quick preview here below, a one-of-a-kind pair of Black+White Graffiti Earrings, signed and numbered on the back.
The Black+White Graffiti is a mini series of One of a Kind jewelry pieces in sterling silver with a stained black patina finish. See more at the show!
The excitement continues with this mini series of one of a kind black and white jewelry pieces...
These are a couple of shots for some work fresh off the bench for the Black+White show launching at Artico in just a few hours!
This invitational show will run May 1-31, 2021 online on Artico and will feature a selection of New Mexico artists and their experiments in black and white only.
All work available exclusively through Artico - a New Mexico Art Collective supporting artists and makers through the COVID pandemic; sales will benefit Artico, the artist in the show and several New Mexico non profits...live links on launch date.
A super quick (and very excited) preview of some work in progress on the bench.
Playing with 'restrictions' in designing new pieces for a Black+White show launching next month online.
So for this invitational online show I am sticking to one metal - thin sheet sterling silver and monochrome - black and white. Simple as that.
And got to say, I am having quite some fun....!
Recycling is in progress on the bench: these are the first two pairs of new earrings I am looking forward to add to my Slices collection this Spring.
These are leftover thin sticks bits and pieces from my cutting of squares and circles out of thick yellow brass...
I wasn't quite sure at first if I should let them stand alone as a mini series or whether I should add them to an existing line...well, of course they belong to the Slices collection!
They match the colors, and the simple, striking vibe.
cold is here.
as a matter of fact there is a foot of snow blanketing my jeep outside. everything is blinding white.
it's time to stock up on a few basic things, firewood, thick rolled oats, beans of course.
then there are the other basics, simple daily pleasures to walk along with you in the day.
and to keep the fire going...
so, stocking up on things like these coil rings, in the golden vermeil, finger rings, scarf sliders...
or in simple black and brushed silver, quite minimal to fit right under those warm winter gloves!
jewelry notes from the bench
Hi, welcome to my jewelry blog!
I make simple, colorful and bold jewelry for a contemporary ageless and fun style.
Have been doing this for quite sometime...pretty sure this is what I want to do when I grow up!
Here I jot down thoughts and notes and pictures of work in the making, both in my mind, on paper and on the bench.
for bench updates and exclusive previews...
