I’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 […]

At the end of August, I participated in the Leon and Lulu Artist Market. If you haven’t visited this store, you really should! In Clawson at 14 Mile and just west of Main Street, Leon and Lulu is an eclectic mix of furniture, clothing, and general items found no where else. It reminds me of […]

This year, I participated once again in the Ann Arbor Art Fair, manning the booth for the Michigan Silversmith Guild.

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 […]

It’s summer and I’ve been busy! Mary’s wire wrap class at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center ended weeks ago, and of course, there is my life to consider (work, home, garden, kids, work, sick cat, writing, editing, and more work). Toward the end of this month – once the chaos ends – I plan on […]
