2011 ~ A New Year

Ski Days Snowflake Necklace

 As a new year arrives and I reflect back on 2010 and the many opportunities to grow and expand into new venues with new designs my mind wanders back through the highlights of a festive busy year. Thank you to all who supported, encouraged and collected my artwork, I truly appreciate you.

Entry for SoDu Gallery's show "From a Woman's Hand."

In the spring, I entered the "From a Woman's Hand" show at the lower Duval Street Sodu Gallery in Key West and managed to have the same necklace sold twice during the one night show and a new place to show my jewelry.

Mt. Crested Butte in the Fall

Lavish on Elk Avenue in Crested Butte has been a great supporter of my jewelry since the beginning by carrying pendant necklaces and earrings and I look forward
 to continuing that relationship this year.

 A trip to San Francisco in the Fall inspired the new City Lights Collection, which was popular this holiday season as was the fresh Retro Style for Modern Girls.
