Wrapping up this year with a touch of gold 

Whew! It's been a whirlwind these last few weeks. :)

In the midst of planning for the Waldorf Winter Fair, I was able to travel a little and ended up in a magical location of Arcosanti in Arizona. Modern architecture featuring cement domes and circular motifs set amongst sweeping plateaus and unexpectedly warm, sunny, pleasant days. It was almost a vacation for me and one of the best “work from home” locals I’ve had since switching away from the office. In the evenings after eating a full meal, I would spend my time tucked in finishing up the leaf loop necklaces.

Our flight home was delayed a few hours which threw off my game a little upon arrival. But I managed to pull it all together and made a sweet little booth. It was a good exercise in prepping for a show and an excellent excuse to make this latest batch of “lightly hammered” pieces which complement nicely my nifty new gold tooth.

Since we’re moving into the New Year and I’m personally feeling renewed and ready for changes, I thought it would be sweet to let you know how much I'm looking forward to sharing more with you all in the New Year!
