I want to say thank you to my mom and all the amazing mom's in the world. Happy Mother's day to you all!
No matter the kind of mother you may be, Be it a single mom, a working mom, a stay at home mom, a adopted mom, an animal mom and all the many other mom's there are, May you know how loved and appreciated you are today and always!
Happy May and Happy Mother's Day!
That's me and my mom up there. It is one of the many awesome days we have spent together. We went to a garden in in the spring a few years ago and wandered for the day through the woods and gardens enjoying some quality time together. My mom and I are truly friends and I love her so very much. I am blessed to have such a great mom and friend. Don't get me wrong, just like all mother's and daughters, we have our moments and there are things that I am sure drive her as crazy about me, as there are things about her that make me insane. But this is true of all great friends as well. My mom has been a terrific teacher to me in many ways and has helped me be a better mom to my son through her own example. So this being the month to celebrate mom, I wish to say Thank you mom for all you do, all you are and all your love. You were and are the best mother in the world to me!
I only have a few updates for you this month. My next show will be June 30th at the Sandwich Fest in Sandwich ,MA. Also, I am currently offering a free pair of earrings with any purchase of my Keepsake pendant until the day after mothers day. The earrings are simple hoops to match the pendant choice, it is the perfect Mother's day gift! It takes two to four weeks to complete, so get your orders in fast. I will send you a card to give in the meantime as your gift until the pendant and earrings arrive, so your mom will be super excited!
No classes until the fall so enjoy the time off or feel free to visit my projects section for some practice this spring and summer. Or give me a shout and we can get a group of your friends together for a personal class right in your home! I can teach up to ten people at a time and we complete one project in approximately 2-3 hours. It is great fun for bridal parties, they can make their own earrings for the wedding! Or maybe just a fun ladies night or celebration with a group of moms. I am local on Cape Cod, so a Cape getaway class is fun too. I can come to your cottage or house while you are visiting.
I have added quite a few new pieces to my Etsy store and they are also available on my Square store if you prefer to use that website. If you want to see me in person I will also be doing two week long stays at the Hyannis Shanties in early and late August, or shoot me a message and we can try to set up an appointment for you to visit my home studio some time.
As always have a wonderful month and remember to not only celebrate your mom ,but also celebrate yourself if you are a mom cause you are awesome!
Easter is a great time for reflection. Of course it has many meanings for many people, we all celebrate in our own way whether it be a religious one or filled with fuzzy animals and chocolate shaped eggs, but truly it is a celebration that signals the rebirth of spring and the coming of longer and hopefully warmer days. I love this time of year for the fact that it is a chance to rediscover old loves and try new adventures as well. I hope you feel the pull to do the same.
I am gearing up for my busy season of art shows and outdoor markets, and preparing for my last jewelry class before summer break with Nauset Community Education Program. The Spring class will be a back to basics class. All wire jewelry making in a true beginner style , so if you ever wanted to give it a try this is the perfect class to test the waters. I am also working on a few new pieces to get ready for my first show on June 30th in Sandwich, Ma on the Main Street called Sandwich Fest. It is a one day event with local food vendors competing for the best sandwich around and loads of local artists showing of their amazing talents and items. There will be fun for the entire family to enjoy and of course great tasting food , entertainment and fabulous gift items to purchase. So come by and say hello and have a great time!
I am also running a very exciting Special on my Keepsake pendant that I recently released. From April 11th till May 13th 2018(Mother's Day), I am giving away a FREE pair of hoop earrings with every pendant purchase! The earrings will be made in the same metal as the pendant purchased so they can be worn as a matching set. They will be 1/2" classic teardrop hoops on hook ear wires and will fit nicely with the pendant or any outfit at all. Just go to my Etsy store and order any stone, style, metal and size you like in the pendant during those dates. I will send you a confirmation and a request for a high quality photo and in 3-4 weeks you will have an amazing, very special gift to give.
Of course keep your eyes checking up on my Facebook page for any new items or news in between, and have a marvelous April! May you all get inspired by the fresh sprouts coming up and the birds returning to nest. Happy Spring!
I am a self taught jewelry artist and designer. My blog is the door to all the new things I learn, the stones I use and love, the pieces I created and the events I participate in as well as my thoughts along this journey. I hope you enjoy the ride with me.
