November 2020 Newsletter

Ahoy lads and lasses!

I am proud to be a featured artist during the 2020 edition of Santa Cruz Open Studios, which is being held virtually this year! The website is up and running and I hope you will join me and the other incredible artists online. I know a lot of folks use Open Studios as a way to purchase gifts for the holidays, but this wonderful resource will be up all year, so feel free to check it out for all sorts of events like the holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries!

If you are interesting in seeing my work in person, please feel free to make a private appointment with me. I will have very limited appointments available due to the impact of COVID-19, so please schedule early and preview my work on my website. I will require masks and will only allow visitors in an outside viewing area near my studio.

Holiday Gifts

Do you think you know what that special someone in your life wants for the holidays this year?

Well, let's be honest. Shopping is hard! In order to help you out, I'm offering a free online consultation this year. If you send me 3 photographs of their favorite jewelry pieces, I will either recommend something special from my collection or work with you to create a custom piece of jewelry so you can give the best gift ever this year!

Giving a gift to someone you care about is a special act of love, and my store is restocked with handcrafted artwork to support upcoming holiday purchases. For unique gifts, check out new poppy and redwood bronze pieces to make a home more personal, browse my collection of beautiful jewelry, and explore original paintings.

I have also created an Under $100 category for easy shopping on my website. Here are a few things from that list to help you out!

Remember, you can also give a gift to yourself!

New Products

I just finished out this set of Scroll-inspired jewelry. It would be a great set to give as a gift for an anniversary or for the holidays coming up!

I am currently working on a variety of art commissions, and I have a few slots open for new commissions. Let me help you make your vision become a reality by telling me about your ideas for unique jewelry, sculptures, or paintings!
