instagramI’ve been entering the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center student show every year for…years? and have never won anything. Yes, my pieces are shown, sometimes, but winning a prize has been elusive.

This year, I won a Marcia Boehm award. Prestige, and a gift certificate to my favorite jewelers’ supply store. And it was on this particular pendant! I called in “Matte and Sparkle.” (Don’t you love how they want you to title your pieces?) Copper wire wrap, unakite (the matte), faceted peridot (the sparkle). I even handmade the chain.

I guess there IS hope!

If you are in the area, the show (which also features woven goods, ceramics, and of course, a lot of paintings, all of which are fabulous!), the exhibit will run from now until February 19. Information can be found HERE.
