New Museum Pieces

I've been working on some new pieces to be delivered to the Westmoreland Museum of American Art's Museum Shop and these frosty mornings have taken me in the direction of cool blue topaz and quartz...Stop by and see them!  The Museum has a Holiday American Marketplace Preview & Picturing America Catalog Release Party on Tuesday November 9 : 5:00PM - 8:00PM

Thanks to all who turned out for the Greater Westmoreland Creative Collective's first annual Artful Affair!  It was great fun and great success.  I feel that the concept was validated!  So today I am thinking of metal work and converting ideas in my mind to silver...

An Artful Affair!

So the big event is just a few days away and I am busy in the studio!  I was feeling the cool, gray fog this morning and so worked with pearls, labradorite and kyanite...Then after lunch the sun was shining and my studio was filled with sunlight and out came the carnelian!  Then came a mixture of the two with copper and silver pearls... I feel so overwhelmed with ideas that I am certain there will not be enough hours in the day or tea in my cup.  Please stop by on Saturday and see what all the wonderful artists have to offer...I am looking forward to shopping too!

Still feeling the Blues...

Those of you who know my work know that I favor blues and greens...I am loving this mix of cool, peaceful, watery blues and bright sterling silver...Come see them at An Artful Affair, September 25, 2010.

Refreshing September

September is a busy month for Zippity Doodads! I wrap up the Ligonier Country Market on September 11 and then look forward to speaking to the Greensburg College Club at the Greensburg Garden and Civic Center on September 16th.

September 25th is the kick-off event for our newly formed Greater Westmoreland Creative Collective...I am very excited to be collaborating with such talented and creative local artists...Please stop in to enjoy a cup of tea and browse our wares!  Look to the right for details!

So I am thinking of warm 14 kt gold and coppery pearls...Add some peridot to brighten and I am feeling the fall vibe!
