Workshop: Viking Knit Pendant January 28th, 2012

Many of my students have been asking for something different in my classes lately.  In the winter term at Pensacola State College I offered a viking knit bracelet class.  The ladies had so much fun and did so well with it that I decided to offer a class on using this technique to create a pendant framed with the viking knit stitch.  The results of this adaptation are lovely.  See for yourself:

Find My Work at Susan Campbell Jewelry in Penscola, FL

I am proud to be the only local artist available at Susan Campbell Jewelry in Pensacola, FL.  Susan has hand picked the work of approximately 30 artists to showcase in her shop and I have been among them since October of 2011.  Susan picked my work up due in large part to her love of my needle-lace work in precious metals.  She has featured several of my needle-lace bezel pendants which have proven to be popular with her patrons.  In fact, many of them found new homes this past Christmas morning.

Another proven popular item at Susan Campbell Jewelry for me has been my Grecian bi-metal hoop earrings, available in three sizes.

     I am excited about my inclusion at Susan Campbell Jewelry and I look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship in the new year ahead.

The Best Part of what I Do is ….

As a jeweler I love the knowledge that I play a small part in so many peoples Christmas morning. I think about the countless pieces that have passed from my bench to the Christmas morning of others and I feel a certain joy.  Knowing that I played a small part in someone’s magical moment is deeply gratifying.

  Though the holidays have kept me insanely busy and I’ve not had much time to blog about all of the exciting things that have been happening lately I do have LOTS to share with you.  I have a lot of workshops coming up in the months ahead at Pensacola State College, the University of West Florida the Emerald Coast Bead Society Retreat and A Bead and Crystal House in Pensacola.  Look for announcements soon.  I have so much to tell!   I will have more time to blog at the onset of January. I hope that everyone has enjoyed a Merry Christmas with their loved ones and I wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2012!
