hey everyone - just had to give some happy news about annual conference and how awesome it was! jared and i were so happy to be there, showing off our artwork, meeting lots of peeps, and selling a bundle of chalices! couldn't have done it without the sweet hook ups from rusty, thank you!! and thanks to all of his supportive friends :) It was great to hang with both of our fams and take a vacation from the studio (and kenny's!).
this was our setup, homemade banner and all ;)
and, handbuilt shelving unit, thanks dave! i thought it looked like a picture frame for the goblet sets, perfect.
and a little more happy news... on thursday morning last week jared had an interview with university schools for a part-time middleschool art teaching position. . . . ... he nailed it!! and i am so proud and happy to say he has a job!! officially accepted the position yesterday :D he is like a real grown up now! his own classes and own curriculum ... own desk! He is super excited, and already telling me his lesson ideas. I am just as excited and happy for him!!
I am taking my last undergrad class this week, it is bittersweet!! I am sad that it is almost over, but happy to be getting that degree :) the class is PMC, stands for precious metal clay. It is really cutting edge jewelry technology - clay that turns to fine silver when it is fired!! i think i am in love. it is pretty amazing stuff and i am enjoying working with it (not as much as real clay!!). hard to wrap my head around it turning to metal after firing though.... we are doing 5 projects in the week long class and it feels like they are flying by, sadly.
fine silver earrings!! so cute! i did the wire wrap and everything ;)
during my jewelry affair the last two days i have missed being in the studio with jared and brad who are working hard on new projects! I am crossing my fingers to not get called into work and have a little free time for throwing tomorrow... I am having withdrawls! hah
hugs & love xoxo
