I wish I could say I was busy in the studio, but in actuality I have been tightening up my novel. And dealing with snow. And trying to maintain the rest of my life.

Wire wrap classes started up again two weeks ago at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center, and what a surprise to see Mary there. That’s because her surgery was pushed back a couple of times. I don’t know how many times I said “good luck” but it has to be at least four. 🙂 Hopefully, she will have it tomorrow and then be done with it.

One of my pieces made it into the student show:

This is the one that made it. It includes an amethyst, cut citrine gemstone, a sea urchin fossil, three black agate cabs and a blue topaz.  Can you imagine? While I love it, I can’t understand why this one didn’t make it:

I call this one “Bejeweled.” It is sterling silver, one gold filled wire, huge mystic topaz, a pear shaped blue topaz, a faceted amethyst, an amethyst cab, pink topaz faceted stone, and black agate cab. If anyone is interested in buying, I can let it go for $800.

Both include wired chokers that are quite stunning.

More later.
