the deadline for all finished pieces to be in the hands of the judges for the 2009 Saul Bell Design Award Competition. I was honored to be chosen as one of the 5 finalists in the Precious Metal Clay category this year.
The necklace I designed and submitted incorporated Oregon Sunstones from the Ponderosa Mine, PMC+, PMC Gold, and freshwater pearls. I sure hope the judges will be intrigued. I know I’ll be up against some tough competition.
On Little Cranberry Island, January is a good time of year to settle in, read books, and watch movies. Most people I see picking up their mail have a red Netflix envelope tucked in with their daily paper, catalogs, and bills. My good intentions to photograph more jewelry this month never made it past the intention stage. However, I’ve watched some good movies, read some great books, and have seen some incredible sunsets on my afternoon walks.
Above was from a walk on Gilley Beach. The sunset below was taken from the stern of the mailboat, after dropping passengers at Great Cranberry, heading home to Islesford.
Just another late afternoon walk in January…..
