The Fine Furnishings & Fine Craft Show in Providence, RI, found itself neighbors to a Tattoo, Motorcycle, and loud Rock & Roll Convention, with thin walls separating the two!!!! The RICC event planner surely must know that the great fine artists who paid good money to exhibit, and they were a group of really top-of-their-field artists, must carry on conversations in order to sell the work. Throbbing music gave the artist's vocal cords a work out. The work available was outstanding, especially the jewelry and woodworking.

Doug Foulkes never ceases to create beautiful images, that help me get into choice shows. He can be reached at 203-775-0496, http://www.douglasfoulke.com/. These are new images of "Spirit Boat", the pendant with the earrings. The mixed metals of NuGold Brass, Fine and Sterling Silver, create a warm framework for the amethyst and peridot stones.

Doug Foulkes does a great job photographing jewelry. His expertise lies in shooting advertising layouts for catalogs & magazines, but he is branching out into jewelry, and I highly recommend his work. He's located in Ct, and can be reached at 203-775-0496. He does have a website, so google the man.

NuGold is a brass alloy, also called Merlin's Gold, which contrasts nicely with sterling or fine silver. It solders like sterling, and has a warm glow.
Spirit Boat is a new piece, hot off the bench. Boats have always held a power of transition from this world to the Otherworld. Birds are the guardians, protectors. Something similar was created in Celtic art around 500BC. Another of my Winged Ones Series.
