2018 Upcoming Events and New Items

Events for 2018 are pretty much set, most of the shows taking part in the second half of the year. 

You can visit me in Bethlehem PA, Montauk NY, Columbia MD, Chester NJ, Dulles VA and Gatlinburg TN to name a few. Visit the full schedule at It's a great opportunity to see the country and the network of fellow crafters always give me lots of laughs and when things get tough, shoulders to lean on.

When you find a good show, you want to go back, and so I want to ensure I have a new and yet still unique selection of creations; so I'm branching out beyond ear cuffs.  This will be a slow evolving process to give myself time to enhance new skills while I keep my ear cuff designs available.

Below is an example from the copper pendant design collection. The octopus was sculpted with polymer clay, then electroformed in copper (layers of copper build over the design using copper, a special solution and electrical current) and finished with a turquoise patina to complete the design.

My unique designs are not generally available online, so check out my Upcoming Events page or email me at if you're interested in more details.

The design below are the same process as the octopus, but this is electroformed lace with little Swarovski crystals.

My designs have been in a number of weddings and also worn by wedding guests. Custom requests are always welcomed. Contact me at to discuss.

I hope to see you at one of my events soon. If you know of a successful event that is multiple days long, share the details with me. I'm especially interested to learn about good shows in Florida in the first 4 months of the year.

Thanks for supporting my business and if you want to learn more about my designs, visit or watch my video on how to wear ear cuffs at
