day of firsts

I presented my first commissioned piece yesterday. It is such a special gift to be able to create something that has meaning for the people giving it, as well as to the person receiving it. To play a part in facilitating this gift-giving is an honor. I enjoyed the challenge to create/design something with and for people, and think the final product fit the desired outcome.

I am also please to say that I have found employment!!! I will be working at the Rosedale Center (yes... where Jesse works) as a permanent sub. I think this is going to be a perfect job, great hours-done by 1pm!, and jesse and I can commute together. The people at the school are amazing, they are dedicated enjoyable people. I look forward to all the trials and growth of this next coming fall! at that I will now put on the grubby clothes and meander next door to work on the house... which I will be doing all summer:-)

I will leave you with this-Bella eating a toy hand our 10 yr old niece gave her!

and us eating watermelon!!

DCCA Opening

the opening for the DCCA was last night, it was a great time and so wonderful to see everyone there. I am thrilled to say two very special people bought bone necklaces, what an honor. I was in a front case with amazing people-Janet Huddie, and Doug Bucci, and yes, even two Jan Baum pieces. wow. The work in the show was beautiful, I am so proud to be a part of Towsons Metals and Jewelry alum and for the opportunity.

Taking shots of work in display cases is something I haven't figured out how to do without it looking horrendous, but here is some god awful images
