Showing at Studio Location K
Carol will be showing at Rosemary Bigelow’s studio along with guest wood turner Chris Bosley and birdhouse creator Andy Zuckerman of Cool Dad’s Creatures during the tour.
I always wanted to make jewelry. I finally started that journey in late 1998 or so, by cutting my first stone. The bug bit and I have moved deeper and deeper into the art. Gold or silver makes no difference. It is all lovely, and cut stones are a focal point. Actually, the focus changes and evolves with time.
Texture, color, the use of antique dies, stamping, it is all just begging to be explored! I remember once, during a show jury, being told that I needed to narrow my field of interest to just one line. That did not work. There is such beauty, and each and every piece is just waiting to strut their stuff. My joy is in finding the technique or techniques that are best at giving the life to that stone or design.
