Other big news: I'm graduating from my jewelry and metals program this winter! Part of this process involves having a solo show, and mine will be on Friday, Dec 16th, at Wayward Coffeehouse, at Roosevelt and 65th in Seattle from 6pm to 9pm. I even have a postcard for it!
All of the pieces featured on this postcard will be at the show along with some other spectacular things.
Speaking of things you haven't seen yet, here's another pendant:
I'm exceptionally pleased with the smoke effect from the double silk ribbon necklace. I think I'm going to switch everything over to silk cords and ribbons. At the least it will lend some consistency to my presentation.
Also, speaking of shows, I'm all lined up to be in the Dealers' Room at RustyCon January 20-22, 2012. I've got my paperwork in for the Dealers' Room at Norwescon, but I don't know yet if I'm going to get a slot. I should probably snag an art show table to feature some of my really spectacular pieces, just in case.
OryCon was a pretty fun show. I seriously had the slickest, most professional display of all the 3D artists.
I sold a pendant and a print, and spent an awful lot of time at concerts. Also, I think some of the northwest convention regulars are starting to recognize me. :-)
I'm going to be away from home and studio for a couple weeks right after RustyCon for a desperately needed vacation, during which I'll be filling my personal twitter feed with pictures of things like pineapples full of rum. With any luck I'll come back full of ideas and new solutions to vexing engineering problems.
That's about it for now. There will be further updates on progress towards the graduation show. If you're in the Seattle area at the time, feel free to stop in.
