Gallery Boom

I am so pleased to announce that my jewelry is now available at Gallery Boom in Tumwater, WA.

Gallery Boom 3

This is my display, near the front window (see picture above).  The earrings, bracelets and necklaces all have handmade ceramic components, both my own ceramic beads and pendants, as well as the work of other ceramic bead artists. You’ll also find lampwork glass and various textile accents in my work, as well.

The photo below shows my earring display.  There was a strong backlight coming through the window, so it was hard to photograph with accurate colors.

I added some tacks to my usual wooden box displays, so I could hang up some of my bracelets.  A few days ago I made the Christmas bracelet you see in the center of the photo.  It was fun to make and it’s fun to wear!

Button Love

Button Jewelry

I love finishing my jewelry creations with button closures, or using buttons as decorative elements in a jewelry design.  On today’s Art Jewelry Elements blog post I shared my vintage glass button collection, as well as my collection of Thai cloisonné buttons and mother of pearl buttons.  There are also multiple examples of jewelry that employs the use of buttons and resources for finding handmade buttons.  You can check it out here:  Button, Button, Who’s Got The Button.

Meanwhile, here are a few of my designs that feature buttons:

This woven bracelet features a beautiful green vintage glass button from Germany.

Zigzag Zing Bracelet

This necklace also has a German vintage glass button closure, with a loop made of soft, round leather cord.

Although Christmas is still 4 months away, I’ll share this last bracelet with you anyway.  It’s hand-woven in Christmas colors and has a pretty gold button closure with a cut-out star in the center.
