No Time to Hibernate
As the leaves fall and windless frosty mornings bring a stillness to the landscape, I bathe in the late season sunlight and drink in the warm golds and coppers of lingering fall foliage. But where the shorter days and cool air typically prompt a need to hunker down and hibernate, I’m feeling instead a sense of anticipation. I find myself looking forward to festive occasions, family gatherings and adventures in the snow.
My excitement began over the summer with the return of craft fairs, a welcome change from 2020. Getting out and about and seeing customers inspired me to create new designs and enhance shop favorites. The feeling of exhilaration continues as I stock galleries and take orders for the holidays.
The limited-edition Flow series of pendants grew from the summer flurry of activity. These one-of-a-kind pieces combine my signature leaf texture, favorite metalsmithing techniques—enhanced by Keum-Boo—and beautiful gemstones, and they are now in the shop. Browse around my website for new work, one-of-a-kind pieces and, of course, customer favorites.
Are you looking for artful gifts for special people in your life this year? The holidays will be here before you know it. As my gift to you, I am offering free shipping on orders of $200 or more for the month of November (use code FREE200 at checkout). Think of it as motivation to plan ahead. This is no time to hibernate.
I wish you a joyous holiday season.

The world of fine craft really comes alive in summertime. Craft fair season begins and we artists come out of our studios to hit the road to and share our craft in person. I’m gearing up for a busy summer season and look forward to catching up with everyone at a craft fair near you.
I'm bringing my jewelry to the Mount Washington Valley Farmers Market on June 28th at the North Conway Community Center, and then it’s on to Art in the Park in Petoskey, Michigan, July 16, and then the League of NH Craftmen’s Annual Fair at Mount Sunapee Resort in August. I’ve updated my events page so you can follow along and find me.
