tower of power

Contemplating bringing this guy back. It's a difficult design to build, but has been getting ALL the love lately - even buried in a jumble... Vintage brass mesh watchband strip wrapped around huge, faceted, smoky quartz bugle beads - and anchored with a tiny vintage brass curb chain.

Holiday Shows

The West Coast Craft show was beyond fantastic. Those amazing people really know how it's done. On every level. Makers who participated are all sighs and smiles when reflecting on that fun weekend and the stylish shoppers we met.

Holiday Arcade at The Old San Francisco Mint followed. Artists and vendors were artfully set up through the grand rooms of the historic building, creating a little city of small shops to wander. Great music piped throughout - and a full bar (!) - helped shoppers bring on the Holiday spirit.

On to SF Made Holiday Gift Fair this weekend! It's a two day show, and each vendor sets up shop for one day -- I'll be showing there on Saturday, from 10am-5pm. All mesh jewelry is 20% off at the show!

weathered patinas

New pieces for upcoming Holiday shows: weathered patinas in brass mesh, here with oxidized sterling silver chain detailing. Whether it's reclaimed vintage metal mesh or new, raw brass with a hand-weathered finish--the soft, muted effect makes for earthy jewelry that still flashes in the light.
