Doubly Blessed

Watching my jewelry art evolve during the past five years has given me pause to reflect....

Yes, it thrills me to learn new techniques, or watch a sheet of metal take on texture and unfold into a bracelet. 
I love heating metal with my torch and gazing at the rainbow of colors that emerge from its depth. 

Yet, if asked what is my greatest joy, without hesitation I would answer "Clients who have become beloved friends."

I've been doubly blessed by my friends in Phoenix and Tucson.  They believe in me and what I create.  So, when my dear friend, Nancy,  asked if I would be willing to hold a trunk show in her Scottsdale home because her friends want to meet the artist who's created the pieces she wears....I'm there!

I had the joy of meeting these ladies a week ago and sharing my passion with them.  When they asked if I would be returning next year, I knew I was doing something right!  I will be back, ladies!

Share the show with us...

Just one week later, to the day, I hosted my annual Holiday Trunk Show at Casa Hess ~ and you're invited!

Wow, it's all over for this year...kinda that letdown you feel when you've been planning for a big event for a long time...but, it's all good!

What's next, you ask?  Well, I'll be keeping you posted on that one. There's a BIG studio renovation!  Cabinets have been ordered, butcher block worktable top has arrived, and we're heading to SAHBA this weekend to decide on floor treatment.  Color me EXCITED!!!  

This means my office will revert to being a guest room/office once again, and I'll be totally self-contained in the Studio!!  First stop will be the paint store....hmmmm, I'm thinking a very pale aqua would speak to my muse.  Stay tuned!

Have a simply beautiful week, my friends!
