A new year inspires new work

It is a new year and I am getting ready to meet new and returning buyers of taviametal jewelry from galleries, boutiques, and specialty shops from across the country at The American Made Show in Philly.  Here is a sneak peak at some of the new lines I have brewing...



Through thick and thin

blog 9

The month of January I found myself in a very introspective state.  Contemplating a colorful year that included two break-ins at our sweet home, detectives, attorneys, insurance, studio moves, family and friends health issues, and the death of my amazing father-in-law, 2012 was quite full of emotion - from the...

Broken Finger Reflections

Well, as some of you know, I have been nursing a broken finger and have not been able to make jewelry for a couple weeks.  I have been spending my time "hunting and pecking" my way through emails, sketching and getting some things prepped for when I am back at...
