Out of Oxygen...

I've never liked the look of a lone propane tank... Being out of oxygen is a total bummer!

Early Morning Studio Update

It's finally getting there! I've been working on some knuckle dusters that will have fancy painted acrylic nails set into them... very Kid Sister-esque. It's taken alot of time, with loads of castings, solderings, and patience... but, I'm hoping to solder the bezels down today and then complete the final round of castings. This picture shows the two rings, with the bezels just taped into place and some practice nails sitting in the bezels. Ok, off to the soldering board, wish me luck!

For me, jewelry embodies a kind of

immortality... the ability to stretch

a single moment out into infinity.

Off to SOFA Chicago!

Tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn I'll be starting my journey to Chicago to check out this years SOFA CHICAGO event. The show is an international exhibition of sculptural objects and functional art, and rotates from Chicago to New York to Santa Fe. SOFA presents prominent international galleries and art dealers in a single venue, showcasing art that bridges design, decorative and fine arts.

I've never been to a SOFA EXPO before, so I'm super excited to check everything out... and, I hear that Chicago's the best venue out of the three, so that's an added bonus! I'm also flattered because Sienna Gallery will be showing some of my new neoprene pieces at the EXPO.

The show opened today, but I'll still have all of Saturday to wander around the show. Needless to say, I'll be taking lots of pictures and posting them once I get back!
