I’ll warn you right now: getting started with mixed media jewelry is a slippery slope.

I found this old brass corner piece from a cabinet and I loved the shape of it. I knew it would make an interesting piece of jewelry, and chose to make it the focal point for a necklace.

I’ve been in the studio a lot lately, getting ready for teaching at ArtBliss.  I’ve been writing class handouts and proposals. I’ve been taking jewelry photos (in triple digit heat, at times, sweating into my viewfinder) and editing, naming, organizing. Writing, writing, writing. Pondering.
