Button Earrings

Here are a cute pair of button earrings. I think that they are adorable. They are made of sterling silver and are hollow forms. I have cute and oxidized lines into them. These would make a perfect Valentines Day gift.

My Grandfather

Hugo Ernest Theodore Carlson
September 6, 1914-January 6, 2013
My Grandfather had passed this past week. It has been difficult for me to handle. He was a great man and a wonderful grandfather. He is the reason that I have become a jeweler. He gave me the catalog from the  craft school where I took my first class and became hooked. He has always had a passion and a love of jewelry that rubbed off on me. He was 98 years old and he made a massive impact on my life and on the life's of everyone he knew.  I learned a lot about my grandfather this past week that I had no idea about. I wish that I learned them from him. I loved talking with him and I miss him. He was a great man!

Worcester Art Museum

 Over the weekend we had a family outing to the Worcester Art Museum. On the first Saturday of each month they have free admission from 10am-noon. It was great. The above is a picture from an gallery and the gold work is astounding.  These pieces are from 700-1500AD from the Panama area.
The above sculpture is one of my favorites, it by artist Louise Nevelson. I also used this as a inspiration piece at the last Art-All State. I love here work. I love the use of all of the small parts to make one large piece and the monochromatic color is fantastic. I loved sharing this  with Quinn and Steve. Steve has a love for here work also, we have two books in out library about her and her work. Just amazing.
The above is a great photo of Quinn. We are in I believe one of the American artist galleries. Quinn was inspired and started drawing. How amazing!!! He loved the museum and I am floored by how well he behaved and how engaged he was. It was a great day.

From my window

I am so lucky to have a window in front of my bench. And this is what I see from my window. I can get lost in just staring out sometimes as I am sure that lots of people do. It looks great with all the snow.

New work in progress

Here are couple of pieces that I am working on. It will be a necklace and pair of earrings. The pendent I am planing on stringing onto lava beads. This is a going to be fabulous. I love doing these pieces, I love the lines, I find them striking. The texture of the lava is spectacular, each one has it own personality.
