Some new pieces...

Here are two of my newest creations. One is made from our tiny hydrangea flowers. I soldered three together to create this beautiful necklace.

The other piece is made from raw turquoise. I love this ring. Big and chunky, it is very wild west. Straight to the private collection for this one. But I am working on more for our upcoming shows.

Also we are proud new members of Etsy Metal! Quite an honor.

Ring a Day Challenge 30 days later.

We did it! Kerry and I completed our ring a day challenge for the whole month of January. Honestly it was one of the best things that I have done artistically in a while. I got to make some new pieces in the studio to add to inventory, some for my "private collection", and the more conceptual ones I put in a shadow box and hung it in our office. This certainly was a challenge but it got us in the studio every day which is always a good thing.

I wish that we could continue on but now it's time to apply to 2010 shows. I will be checking out our fellow metalsmiths on Flickr to see what new things are made throughout the year. Anyone who makes a ring every day for a year is a Rock Star in my book. Good luck y'all!
