Stringing Magazine

A few months ago, I received a wonderful email from Danielle Fox, the editor of Stringing Magazine — a how-to jewelry publication. She found my work on etsy and thought my ring stands were 'exquisite'. She asked if she could feature one of my ring holders for an article on jewelry storage/organization — and of course I had to say 'yes'!

And so below is a detail from the magazine layout. I love how fresh and bright it is! What a great job they did ('they' meaning Danielle) styling the shot and displaying the ring holder. I am so thrilled that my work is getting out there!

Make It!

I am getting very excited about doing the upcoming show called Make It! It is only my second show since doing Portobello West last September. So, I am busy in the studio making new work and adding new touches to the design of my display. It is being held at the Chinese Cultural Centre (197 1st Street S.W.) from Friday, November 6 (4 PM - 8 PM), on Saturday, November 7 (11 AM - 6 PM) to Sunday, November 8 (11 AM - 5PM). Oh, and there is a $5 dollar admission at the door. Hope to see you there!

New Etsy Look

I am trying out a new look for my etsy shop.

I have always felt that it looked so busy with all of the ring holders positioned at different angles for the main feature image. So now, I have simplified the views by featuring all of the ring holders at a birds eye view straight down. I like the graphic repetitive shapes of the round saucers — and plus, now you can see the entire design and detail of each china pattern.

Check it out here!
