Arrowmont 20th Resident Reunion

This past week, I had the pleasure to spend time at the Lovely Arrowmont
School of arts and crafts. Getting there and coming home was a bit of an interesting
drive since I got flats on both trips! 
My bench with work in progress. Lots of enameling!!! Every resident created a sample piece to leave at Arrrowmont on a shelf  made by the fabulous Ben Strear in the woodshop. It was incredibly inspiring to be surrounded by so many amazing artists all working, collaborating, and celebrating the history of craft at Arrowmont. 

A pair of basket earrings I traded to Jill Baker Gower for a pair of her lovely earrings!!! TRADES!!!

Thank goodness for gifts of dark chocolate to keep me going on my road trips. 

4 Bridges Art Festival

Here is a quick shot of my booth at the 4 Bridges art festival.

Some new enameled forms that will soon be set into brooches and necklaces. This month I'm preparing for the 4 Bridges Art Festival in Chattanooga, TN on April 14th and 15th. I've got the tent, jewelry displays are in the works and all the work for sale is beginning to get packed up. On the way I'm very glad I'll be able to stop into Arrowmont for a quick visit with some of my most favorite people! The frigid but lovely swimming hole will have to be visited and I can't wait to see the resident exhibition!!!
