Express Yourself with Silver Leaves

Just a quick reminder, this weekend is the Front Range Open Studios Tour. Saturday, 9/14 from 10 AM – 6 PM and Sunday, 9/15 from 11 AM – 5 PM. Click here for the map to all the studios on the tour.
Now I want to share with you what will be happening at my studio this weekend. I also wanted to give you a sneak preview of a few of the new works I will be introducing.
The Express Yourself Earrings, pictured at the top of this post have the new leaf variation in silver with a curly, vine-like stem. The stones above the pearl are Picasso Stones and are put together to resemble cairn trail markers. All of this symbolizes the true Colorado spirit I have wanted to achieve with this line.
I will also be introducing a new Treescape earring with a touch of gold. The tube sets on these are 14kt gold with gemstones like Amethysts as shown in this pair.
There are a number of new Treescape pendants, with colorful patinas like this one.
As discussed in an earlier blog post, I will be providing an opportunity for visitors to discover their inner artist by creating a pair of earrings from components I am providing. The cost of the earrings will vary depending on the components selected.
Of course I will help with assembling the earrings. The added fun to all of this is a visitor can leave with earrings they created. The next two sets of earrings are examples of what someone can create for themselves.
As I have done in previous years, I will be demonstrating a variety of metalsmithing techniques, discussing my creative process and showing you my studio where the real magic happens for me when I create. I hope you will visit me and the other artists on this year’s tour.
Until next time, aspire to be more as an artist and a person.
