Finally finished my charms today for the Charmed Exhibition at the Society for Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh. The show opens Feb 10th, so if you are in the area be sure to check it out. If not, they will be listing all the charms online so you can view and shop from wherever you may be. More info coming soon, for now, here are my charms!
Charms all made with sterling silver, fine silver, antique chandelier crystals, pearls, and each about an inch in size.

I am a metalsmith, educator, wife, and mother, living the life of an ex-pat in Doha, Qatar. I moved to Doha from Arizona, where I had previously spent most of my life. I earned a Bachelors of fine art in metals in 2006, and a Masters of Fine Arts in Metals in 2010. I was the resident artist at the Mesa Art Center from 2010-2013, and an adjunct professor in metals at Central Arizona College. I am currently trying to balance navigating/living in a foreign country with being a mother and a practicing artist. My blog is a place for me to share my thoughts, experiences, successes and failures with you.
