This is one of my latest pieces. This is a more "quiet" piece and I am especially enjoying working with copper. Actually, I've been working non-stop and have created dozens of necklaces. I hope to post them on etsy as soon as summer vacations begin and I get my new photo tent. I've never been able to take good pics so maybe a photo tent will help me.

This past week has been a "doozy"! My water heater sprung a leak and by the time we became aware of it the carpet was completely drenched. No hot water for a day was also quite difficult. Luckily I was able to have a new one installed the next day but it took a while to get over the sticker shock. It's been a while since I had one installed, I spent a good $500 for the water heater and installation. OUCH!

Then, I got word about graduate school. Good and bad news. I was accepted into the Art Ed. program but I was not accepted into the studio classes. I was going to minor in studio. I know the kind of pieces this university looks for. More contemporary, non-objective kind of pieces. I was going to do some abstract work before I applied, but I've been sooo busy. I hoped they would be satisfied with my pieces. I graduated with honors and I hoped they would remember my work ethic. What's ironic is that I am being featured in the universitie's magazine because of the work that I do. Oh well, I will be applying else where.

I'm going to look forward, not backwards, so on I go...

  4. Beautiful new piece. When you get your photo tent, try using it in the daylight by a window. The coloring comes out perfectly! Good luck with school.
