Yesterday I dropped off a collection of work to the Bella Luce Art Cafe. It is a new art center in Whitinsville, MA. It is in the beautiful Alternatives Whitin Mill Complex. Within the complex there are several artist studios and two galleries, also it has a performance center. It is very exciting to be part of this.

The other day I started working on what will become sprout #3. I am excited to see how it will turn out. I have so many ideas for the next step turning around in my head. I can not wait to see what my hands will decide. It is a piece that will tell me what it wants to be, it just takes time. Working and looking and playing with it over and over. The end product will be magnificent.

Here are a pair of earrings that I had made today. They are hollow form construction with a roller printed texture. The stones are citrine and black tourmaline. I made the french wire a little bit different by squaring them. I have found that they do not slip out of the ear. I love them they are fabulous.
Today was a good day. I manage to complete from start to finish two pairs of earrings, one ring and one necklace. I made lots of bits and pieces for future projects. I like to have them on hand so pieces can marinate overnight or over days. I find that it helps me in my process. I prefer to develop pieces by working with the materials right away. Then it just happens.
