From Studio 109A: New Works

September 3, 2009 at 12:00 am (From Studio 109A)

This Friday is the First Friday Gallery Walk in Raleigh. My studio will be open late from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Artspace will be open until 1:30 a.m. for its First Friday After Party.

Each month, I will post new work that I will be showing at First Friday. Of course, you can come visit Studio 109A anytime Tuesday through Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. 

Five Strand Luggage Label NecklaceInspired by the Chiave Bellosguardo necklace, I created this necklace as a less expensive alternative. The original Chiave Belloguardo necklace is thirteen strands of beads with a sterling silver chain mail collar and five keys. This version is five strands with a double curb copper chain and three keys. Vintage luggage labels are transferred to clay and hand-formed into the beads. The beads are woven and twined together with crystals, glass beads, and found objects to form the five strands draping from the copper chain. Crytals and glass beads are wire wrapped from the chain.

Hotel EarringsIn 2004, I created my first lariat style necklace using pen and ink labels. Last month, I designed a three strand necklace incorporating the same pen and ink labels, as well as vintage pen nibs.

I also have several new style of earrings ranging in price from $45 to $65.
