New Style

Here is a pair that I finished recently with etched glass disks of clear and a light steel green. They have Fine Silver disks in the center and a new style of wire. They will be at Bosacki's Open House on Nov. 5th. Stop in and taste some wine from White Winter Winery, specially blended chocolate by Cathy & Colleen, and a variety of other gourmet items.

This is what I woke up to on Monday morning! The view is actually looking out over the deck at my studio. Needless to say it was cold and the winter jacket and gloves had to come out. But there is a short reprieve for Thursday as we'll get into the 60's. More earrings coming soon.

Getting ready for Bosacki's Chocolates Open House....

The Art Tours may be over for the season, but for me there is still a line up of activities. Right now I'm getting ready for Cathy Bosacki's Chocolates & More Open House. This will happen on Nov. 5, 2008 from 4pm to 7pm. Cathy & Colleen run a wonderful business with some of the best tasting chocolate around. (My personal favorite is the dark chocolate Mocha Truffle, but I wish they'd bring back the carrot cake chocolate hint hint!) They invite the artists who have works at their store to be present with new work for sale. They also offer samplings of their other gourmet treats. It's a great time to try some things you just might need for the upcoming holidays, pick up some gifts, and socialize.

I'm concentrating on making a wide variety of earrings for this offering and this is an example of just one style. I'll post others as I get more photos taken, so stay tuned. The disk beads on these pieces are made from Black Nebula glass which contains lots of silver in the actual rod, which gives it the metallic sheen. The Fine Silver circles are handmade as well as the Fine Silver ear wires.

Northwoods Fall Art Tour

Just thought I would post a few new things that will be at the Rodd Umlauf Gallery in Lake Tomahawk for the Northwoods Fall Art Tour. It's this Friday Oct. 3rd - Sunday Oct. 5th. I will be there helping out all 3 days, so if you want to get a look at the Fall Colors and see some fine Northwoods Artists get in your car and go for a drive. You can find the info on the right side of this blog for hours, maps, places, etc.
