This means I’ll be dropping off quite a few pieces of new work when I drive through Gardiner on my way to Greenwich, CT.
Here’s some of the work that will be there by Tuesday noon:

You’ve just got to love the location of the Center for Maine Craft. It’s in a service plaza! Where else could you go to make a pee stop, buy gas, get something to eat, AND see some really great Maine Crafts? I’ll be on my way to Connecticut and New York, but I’ll also be making a stop at the Center for Maine Craft to check out some pottery and other jewelry! 25% off…Woo Hoo!!

This is what one of my work benches looks like when I am in the midst of making necklaces from rocks I have drilled, sea glass, and handmade silver beads. I have had my nose to the grindstone, spending most of the month of April in my studio. This looks like a confusing mess, but the more things I have out, the more I see to be designing the next necklace even as I am still working on the current one.

Why so busy? Most of my work is in galleries that are seasonal. (I wish I’d remembered to take some photos before I dropped off work for the fresh new season at KoT Gallery, in Ellsworth, Maine. The work is already there, waiting for the May 5 opening.) I’m lining everything up for May deliveries.

Another reason for this early push is an upcoming show on May 4th and 5th in Greenwich, CT. The show is a fund raiser for local non-profits. If you live in the area please stop by and check it out. It looks like I will be in some very good company.

Nothing like having my name at the top of a list to finally get myself back to posting on my blog. I hope it gets me back in the habit of taking photos of my work. Today is a good start.

Below is the finished necklace that was sitting in the mess in the middle of my bench.IMGP1523

Sea glass found by Jane Milburn in Seaham, England. White stones from Gilley Beach (just down the street) and fine silver bead handmade by me.
