Well I've been cleaning and reorganizing my studio. I'm very fortunate to have a very large space to create and teach. In the last year I've been very bad at keeping up with the organizing of it so things have started to pile up. I know I shouldn't bring anything else in without taking something out but that doesn't seem to happen for me. So now I'm facing with the job or sorting and purging to declutter not only my space but also my mind. As things get messy in the studio it make me not even want to go in there and when I do I get distracted by the clutter build up. If things work out I may even post a photo of my studio.

So the creating has been pretty slow right now. These are a pair of earrings I made a few weeks ago.

And this is an upcoming class I'll be teaching at the Painted Pony. If you're interested she's ordering the clocks this week so sign up soon.

Wire Work

I have so many things in jewelry making that I want to try. I had no idea when I started this journey just how fascinating it was and how many different ways there are to make jewelry. I've been trying out some wire wrapping this past week. Mostly just spirals and such. Here are a few of the projects I finished with wire wrapping.

Metal on candles

Part of my incentive for cleaning last week for company coming over was to do some fall decorating. And I managed to find a little time to make these Candle sleeves made form Ten Second Studio metal. I got the idea from their Taco Tuesday video. Check it out here. It was a really fast and easy project.
Today I'm doing some prep work for this weekend show at the Goulbourn Museum on Sunday. I'll post some pictures of some new jewelry I've made tomorrow.

Well we're having a wonderful weekend for Thanksgiving and much to be thankful for. We had 2 great meals with family and some beautiful sunny weather. What more could we ask for. The morning air is becoming more crisp so it's time to get out there and in joy all the sunshine that we can.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Well I know this isn't a fall picture. But I finally downloaded my picture from my camera from the last 2 months and installed Photoshop Elements to my computer and this is the picture that resulted from playing with it again. I have a lot to learn but cropping and making close up is well within my range. And a little tweaking with the sphere button is kind of fun and funky.

I think a fall car trip to take some colourful pictures is in order. The sun is peaking through the clouds this morning. Have a great day and don't forget to stop and check out the beautiful fall colours.

Next Workshops

Well fall is definitely in the air and all those wonderful fall workshops have started. I did 2 workshops this past weekend and had a great time with some wonderful students. It's very inspiring to see what creations other people come up with. I try to have open ended workshops where people learn the technique but can incorporate there own ideas style to it. All the students I had this last weekend were very creative and made some wonderful jewelry.

Here are a few upcoming workshops. The calendar is going to be on October 23rd at Painted Pony, and the Piano hinge book will be on 0ct. 25th at St. Elmo's Fire.
