Hearts on Fire

I have been busy hammering away at some hearts with a variety of textures. I will get them listed in my Etsy shop and soon on my website! I love how as I hammer the texture and form unfold.

Guest Artist for a Day!

Last week I was invited to be a guest Artist at the Wind, Water, & Light Gallery in Champaign, Illinois. I was thrilled to be asked….but was also like a deer in the headlights when I realized just how little I had in inventory to put on display!

I worked at a fevered pace to not only create lovely jewelry, but to also devise a way to display it all. Some how it all came together! And was was even more fun, was I brought my mini bench along with me and created new pieces as I was at the gallery! Everyone who stopped in was genuinely interested in watching me create.

As a result of this event, I was asked to sell items at that gallery, was invited to be a guest artist and do demos at other galleries, and have been invited to participate in a Juried Art Fair that had already closed to applications. I will be updating my Luster Metal Works website soon with all of the new Jewelry items and event dates!

Here are a few photos of the event!
