My studio, in my farmhouse basement, has been feeling pretty chilly this past week. Today, when I woke up to snow, I got all excited – it’s so beautiful! Then, I fired up the furnace. The wood stove wasn’t quite doing it…especially not in the basement.
Things are much toastier now and I happily spent time finishing a few pieces I’d been working on. A lovely pink Feather Ridge plume agate pendant necklace and another with a stunning green and red ocean jasper. I love to let these amazing stones take centre stage – there’s just so much to them. So I gave them simple bezel settings and let them do their thing.

Also finished a fun pair of circle earrings for party season!

I know, I’ve been missing in action for far too long. I have a million excuses….
Just wanted to report on my last show of the summer – the Cabbagetown Arts & Crafts Festival in Toronto. It was three days of great fun and non-stop crowds milling through the park where 190 of us were displaying our wares. A first outdoor show for me and a real learning experience! Setting up a tent, dealing with the damage caused by an overnight rainstorm, meeting all sorts of interesting shoppers and artists and making a good number of sales. The challenge was not to buy everything else there….
Here are a few pieces I’ve created since then, plus a shot of my tent at Cabbagetown Festival. Loved the shadows of the tree:
