My Hollow Form Fabrication class at Metalwerx in Waltham, Massachusetts starts next Tuesday,
April 22nd and I soooooooo cannot wait!!! This is my first time teaching at Metalwerx and I am so very excited as they have such a really well equipped studio with lots of yummy tools to go around for everyone!

To all who have already signed up thank you and to those of you who haven't yet get on the phone and register! It's going to be a very exciting class and I cannot wait to see what each person makes. I will ask those taking the class if it is okay to take photos so hopefully we will have some photos up on here in the next few weeks.

Looking forward to meeting everyone, see you there!

Commisisoned Jewelry for Rachel Hearne

Another necklace using another luscious stone from Horizon Mineral. I was instantly drawn to this stone because of its aquatic characteristics. The stone emanates both tranquil and hypnotic vibrations so thought it perfect for my gurl and mother-to-be Rachel. She has since had a lil' boy!

Though we all know how I love metal and the more of it the better I couldn't stomach encasing this stone in too much of it. The thought was like thinking one can harness the sea. So I kept the design minimal allowing the stone to flow and just be. The wavy linear element plays nicely with some of the lines in the bottom end of the stone too. I believe this really works well and ties into Rachel's new phase of motherhood.
