So much to be thankful for this year, family, friends and the joy of making art. I try to never take for granted to the opportunities I've been given to be creative and have the time to do it. There have been so many people in my life that have made that possible for me. Especially people like you, that read and view my work.
Thank you and gracias (para mis amigos latinos/hispanos) for all your support!

As I'd mentioned in a previous post, I'm very honored to be a part of this exhibition with so many talented artists. It is a night to celebrate the brooch at Equinox Gallery in San Antonio, Texas. Such a great idea for an exhibition!
Laura Wood and Alejandro Sifuentes, owner of Equinox Gallery have been working hard to ensure a successful show - they will have live models wearing the brooches on the night of the show, December 2. If you live in the San Antonio area, you should go! I wish I could.

Since I was going to be visiting good friends in DC last weekend, I figured I might as well pop into Jewelerswerk Galerie (owner is Ellen Reiben) and see the new work they're exhibiting.
When I lived in DC two years ago I would always try and make it to the artist exhibits and attempt to talk to them, despite my nervousness. It's rare to have that treat of meeting the artist and learning their methods. I recall when Svenja John visited and I was truly amazed at how she came up with the concept for her pieces and getting them to fit seamlessly.
Tanja, the Galerie assistant was so kind to let me photograph the jewelry and ask her questions about her experience as a jeweler. I learned that in the Netherlands a citizen can actually request funding from the government to buy art - meaning, you don't have to pay for it, the government does!?! Seems like an extraordinary idea but wow, talk about supporting the arts. But Taina said that the program may possibly be cut, which would be terrible for the Galleries.
I left the Galerie with a renewed sense of purpose and inspiration.
Hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for visiting my blog.

A gift for a very good and dear friend I'll be visiting this weekend in D.C., she is one of my biggest cheerleaders, so she must be outfitted with some new bling.
I purchased the stone at the ECU Geology fraternity sale, I know, a geology fraternity? weird but I go crazy buying all sorts of awesome gems and geodes.
Hope you have a great weekend!

Some more fun experimentation with resin and the owl talons. New in my Eilisain Etsy shop!
It's gettin' cray-cray (crazy) up in the studio, but I guess that's a good thing.

purchased on my visit to Taxco, Mexico.
Would certainly make a lovely Holiday gift, no? Hope you like.
