For the past 5 years, I have been one of the artists of the Front Range Open Studios. Doors have been opened, new friendships have occurred and I have had the pleasure of working with the most enthusiastic, energetic founder of the studio tours, Nancy Bonig, who inspires me and is a great friend.
Each year, Nancy opens her home for us and hosts a Customer Appreciation Party for all of you who have supported us by becoming fans and purchasing our work. It is a private, invitation only event. Yet I wanted to share this here for those who are not part of my mailing list (you can sign up here) and may live in the Tri-Lakes area of Colorado. We want to thank you and invite you to this event too.
As you can see, I will be joined by 5 other artists from the tour. We will have some unique works, some at special pricing, as our way of thanking you.
Please come and enjoy the festive atmosphere and holiday treats. We love talking about our process, our latest works and art in general.
May your Holiday Season be bright, filled with love and laughter.
Until next time, I continue to aspire to be more as an artist and a person.
I have been focusing a lot of my attention on creating Treescapes. They continue to evolve and I like the direction the pendants (and earrings) are taking. While I will continue to make pieces that are ‘framed’, right now I find the clean lines that are simple showcase the stones and the tree shape in a classic way.
Dendritic Opal, pale lavender hue in the stone, set in Sterling.
Classic Snow White Dendritic Opal set in Sterling. The patina created a colorful fall leaf look.
These sort of look like a Treescape forest to me.
Lots of inspiration for some of the current Treescapes has come from a little Bonsai Tree I recently acquired. It has a great twisted trunk with such a graceful shape. I can see its influence in some of my recent pendants and earrings.

Deep green Variscite set in Sterling; my signature Treescape design.
