Well, I guess I’m not really ‘mass producing’ anything unless making four or five identical pairs of earrings at a time qualifies. The point is, last week I got my first consignment contract! I met with the manager of a museum shop in northern New Jersey who was very enthusiastic about getting my various collections into the shop. The sooner I get my pieces into the display cases, the better, so I’m having to produce everything in sort of an assembly line fashion. It’s fun, though. I like having all the components lined up and seeing the pieces come together as I finish them.

I’m playing around with some new techniques and ideas and seeing what will come of them. I want to add more rings and bracelets to my store (getting a bit earring-heavy, ya know?), so I’m seeing what I can do with copper discs and silver grains. Something like this work-in-progress will be available soon in my shop.
In other news, the treasury of the day (or two or three days, depending) is called ‘Firecracker COLLIDEoscope’. Take a here to see an explosion of colors!!
