E&A Spring Botanical Garden!

I'm excited to preview the next collection at E&A! This one focuses on simple yet elegant metalwork designs, cast sterling blossoms and leaves, and wire work. I've revisited a few old spring favorites and have added in the four Guardians of the Sky and a smattering of botanicals. 

The new collection will go live at elementsandartifacts.com on Wednesday, March 18th at 10am Pacific!


E&A Springtide 2014 and I Dreamt of the Stars!

I’m very excited to release this huge set of new work for two distinct collections: Springtide 2014 and I Dreamt of the Stars. The latter takes a new direction from past star-laden work with silk wrap bracelets, just-discovered gemstones, new metalwork techniques, and star charts such as the 1764 Messier’s Comet map of Deep-Sky Objects, Flammsteid’s celestial engraving, and the 1754 Gabriel Ramirez map of the stars and constellations. 

March is finally here, so of course spring has come to Elements & Artifacts in anticipation of the Spring Equinox. I sought to update and refine my usual offerings with more simple yet elegant expressions of the season, vivid greens, and colorful blooms. 


Enjoy!

Springtide 2012 is here with Bee Spirits and The Four Alchemical Elements!

Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer. —Geoffrey B. Charlesworth


I wanted to infuse this year's spring collection with a bit of added magic and lightness. Spontaneity! Inspiration! It was truly a fun and joyous collection to create.

Springtide 2012 holds both old and new designs and new directions in ornate wire wrapping. The collection is accented by a reinterpreted earring miniseries called Spring Rhapsody, a magical new swarm of Bee Spirits which spins off of my previous Beekeeper interpretations, and pendants representing the four alchemical elements. Enjoy!

Springtide Preview

Injury? What injury? My spring collection is under wrap despite the issues with my thumb joint! I plan to release Springtide 2012 on Tuesday, March 13 at 10am Pacific!

Last week I rolled out a few early previews on my Facebook page and promised to reveal the surprise subseries that will accompany Springtide: Bee Spirits! My fascination with bees began almost five years ago and my first Beekeeper piece was created for my Etsy shop in 2008. Since then I have revisited the concept dozens of times but they have always been one-offs that were tucked into a larger unrelated update. I'm so excited to finally present a cohesive group of bee-related creations!

Here are previews for Sweet Sting, Nectar, Honey Throne, and Beekeeper's Apprentice. They, along with other bees and bee spirits, will accompany Springtide and an earring subseries called Spring Rhapsody.
