Catch my work in Colorado

Those of you from Colorado, or folks just visiting the outdoor mecca of Salida this summer, can now find my work at The Rosy Finch.  They're in the process of moving to 139 F St., excited to be sharing the big, old downtown hardware store with Yospun yarn shop.

The owner, who's been so great to work with, used to live just 20 mins. from me but we never met. Now, when she's 1,689 miles away, we found each other on the internet. How do these things happen?

No Saint Helena trip this year

By most standards, the journey to Saint Helena is quite an undertaking - not your typical summer vacation. Even though the travel is now by plane instead of ship (since the opening of the airport last year) it's an expensive, 2-3 days from the east coast of the U.S. You to have enough time, enough money, be prepared for separation from family, and have enough money...oh wait, I already said that. But don't get me wrong, it is worth every penny!

We had hoped to be making the journey again this year but For various reasons it didn't work out. We'll so miss seeing our friends. We''l miss the walks, the busy days volunteering at SHAPE, the incredible hospitality, the fish fries...

An amazing fish fry at Isaac's 

Of course, there is much to do right here on this side of the Atlantic and I'm going to throw myself into some projects and opportunities that have been brewing for a while. This also means my shops will stay open with some new pieces coming in June ;-)

Recycled, Redeemed earrings

The new batch of recycled, Redeemed earrings are live in the shop! Each pair is one of a kind so when they are gone...they're gone. 

Although you might see a Redeemed brooch or two pop up sometime soon, this is the last batch of these earrings I'll make until fall of this year. I have some big projects I've been mulling over and this summer is the time to start work on them.

New recycled earrings

The one-of-a-kind Redeemed earrings on my website were getting low so I'll be adding another 25+ this coming Wednesday.  There's a surprising amount of red in this batch - its not a color I use often but I'm really happy with how they turned out.

For the first time I've made several pairs of smaller, post earrings for anyone who'd rather not have a drop or dangle - so light you don't even know you have them on.
