custom: Smiles by Sutherland.

I wanted to share with you some custom pieces that I had the opportunity to make for a local orthodontist office in the area. The office provides the latest technology, from such items as Invisalign and use the Damon system for braces. It was a surprise gift for all of the employees of Smiles by Sutherland.

I designed a range of earrings, necklaces, and bracelets that had the letters SBS for Smiles by Sutherland stamped on the silver circles. Each piece was then given a liver of sulfur patina that was removed in spots to give a rustic finish. It was such a pleasure to work with such a great group of people and make them these custom pieces.

VAIN installation.

Okay, alright... I am finally back to blogging. This time I will honestly be posting more frequently. Today, I would like to share with you a few images from the Ballard Artwalk, more specifically the installation of my collaboration with Claire. The Artwalk was a success despite the horrible downpour outside. Here are few images from the VAIN installation of Claire's lovely postcards and my new collection of jewelry:

If you weren't able to come by the Artwalk, you still can stop come by VAIN and take a look at our work. It will be up until the end of November. I will be uploading a few more images of our work on my flickr page.

P.S.- what do you think of my new hair cut and color (can you guess what color it is, since the image is black and white)?

VAIN: España collection

I am excited to share a special photo/jewelry collaboration that I have been working on with the wonderfully talented photographer Miss Claire. This past summer, Claire studied abroad in Barcelona, Spain and had the opportunity to travel throughout the country. Before Claire left for Spain, we had had talked about her inspiration for the images--- pictures that would best represent and give a glimpse of the beautiful country.

I really couldn't wait to see and hear about Claire's travels. In this collaboration, I created a new collection of work based off of images that Claire and I had selected from her travels in Spain. It was such a fun experience to look through the photos and to automatically see things that inspired me. Here is a sneak peek of some of the pieces:


Claire's photos turned unique, handmade postcards and my new collection of jewelry will be featured this month in VAIN Ballard. Please come by VAIN for the Ballard Art Walk this Saturday (October 9th). I will be posting more images from the Art Walk as well as introducing pieces from the España collection.

side note: i am trying a new format for the images on my blog. what do you think of the size of the images?
