The next phase in the collaboration with Lisa Clague
Last week I made all of the components for the brooch that I’m working on with Lisa Clague. Lisa really likes pink so I went with the pink and orange stripes. It was hard to decide between doing something with color or keeping it all black and white. In the end I chose color because it’s going in the Penland auction and I wanted it to really stand out in the catalog. Now it’s in Lisa’s hands. She is working on the drawing that will go on the top layer. I hope to pick it up later today or tomorrow and take it back to my studio for some final finishing and assembly. I think it’s going to be really cool, even if I do say so myself…… and in the meantime I am in the process of settling in to my new home in Bakersville. Today should be the last of the moving in process for me. Whew! I hate moving, but it’s beautiful here and it will be great to be able to spend more time with David. I bought a little jewelers bench to have at the gallery so that I can do some work when I’m here. Now I just have to figure out the logistics of working in two studios.
