A labradorite moment

Jewelry, Jewelry making

Oh so busy at this time of year! Where do the days go? Anyway, I thought I’d share some of the things I recently finished. Three happen to feature labradorite stones, so I guess it’s fair to say I’m having a labradorite moment. It’s actually a perpetual favorite of mine. I love the shimmer and flash – subtle yet spectacular if the light is right. Three pieces I finished today:

Arts festival in full swing

art shows, Jewelry, Jewelry making

I’m now mid-way through the second arts festival of the summer – this one is Festival des arts Georgeville – Fitch Bay, here in Quebec’s Eastern Townships. My booth is in the Mairie (town hall) in Fitch Bay, a lovely former church, then dance hall, with gorgeous honey-toned aged wooden walls. The wooden backdrop for the paintings being shown there is incredible and really makes the art pop! My co-artists are wonderful and we’re having lots of laughs as we get to know each other. 

If you find yourself in the neighbourhood, do drop by! There’s another site in Fitch Bay and three more in Georgeville, so it makes for a great drive.

Here are some of the pieces I have there:

Snow day!

Rings

Being from Quebec, I’ve always loved snowy weather, so it was a treat to wake up this morning to lots of the stuff! About 8″ overnight and it’s showing no signs of stopping…

Just took the dog for a fun walk along the snowy road and she was digging in the huge snowbanks, running back and forth and generally having a great time. Now that we’re back indoors and warm, I’m heading into my studio to keep working on several rings I’ve got going. Some really lovely agates I’ve amassed! There are such wonderful patterns and colors! Here’s a sampling:
