I think this is the first time I’ve been commissioned to do a wire piece that isn’t jewelry. (And it’s not really a commission, more of an art trade. 🙂 ) She wanted two foxes, and after some very very basic sketching, I got her approval and went to work. 😀 I took that fabric… Continue reading A commission that isn’t jewelry!
I recently had a pretty big commission for a thing I can’t show ya’ll yet. I had a stone left over from it and my 15 year old came to me and said, “If you’re not gonna use that one, can you make me a pendant?” He’d never asked me to make him anything before, so… Continue reading A different kind of commission

If I’d never developed my love for elves and faeries, I would never have wanted a pair of elf ears that didn’t use spirit gum. Would I have come to jewelry design from some other… Continue reading On being a fan
