It’s that time of year again. This Thursday, May 15th, is the official start of the Art Hop season in Monument, CO. For the next 5 months, on the third Thursday of the month, the merchants in historic downtown Monument will have their shops open from 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM. There’s even a new winery opening this week, Catriona’s, which I think will be very interesting to visit and enjoy their cafe, along with a tasting room.
I will be at my favorite hang out, Santa Fe Trail Jewelry, with my latest works. The earrings shown below are from my Sensory Delights series. A sweet, light weight pair that remind me of a Pharaoh’s head dress.
It certainly is a fun evening. So much going on, so many places to see and people having a great time. Lots of artists are in attendance and we all love talking about what we do as we create our works.
Hope to see you there.
Until next time, aspire to be more as a person and an artist.

I am very excited about my first trunk show of 2014. It will be at Santa Fe Trail Jewelry in Monument, Colorado on this Saturday, May 10th. Hours for the show are from 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM. The earrings pictured at the top of this post are one of many new items I will have available.
Just in time for Mother’s Day, I will be debuting my latest series, Sensory Delights.
I’ve been working on a number of bracelets and this is one that has smaller stones. I find it to be very feminine and I’m happy with the textures and color combinations. A bit of eye candy for the wearer and observer alike!
Marylee Reisig, owner of Santa Fe Trail, will be hosting this event. She has created such a warm and inviting atmosphere for her customers and artists. I feel completely at home when I am there.
I find this style of earring to be one of my staples now. Turquoise adds a pop of color and they have lots of texture from reticulated silver to shibuichi.
Carved carnelian beads seemed to be the perfect accent for the textured brass with that ‘touch of Colorado‘ in the leaves for the earrings shown above.
If you live in the area, I hope you will stop by and visit. If you are doing some last minute Mother’s Day shopping, maybe you will even find that perfect gift for that special Mom in your life.
Until next time, aspire to be more as an artist and a person.
