First Friday Gallery Opening

Ironwood Gallery will be hosting an opening, Friday, April 3, 6:00-8:00, introducing my work. How exciting to be part of this wonderful gallery, and to have my work showcased along side incredibly beautiful, museum quality, fine art. I will be there, so if any of my Connecticut people can attend, I'd love to see you. The gallery is located at 103 Danbury Rd, Copps Hill Commons,Ridgefield, Ct, 203-431-3388, or check for more information. Refreshments will be served.

Navigator Series

The Navigator Series are like compasses, pieces that look as if they "do" something, to guide us on the path of life. Each ancient stone from the Earth, is framed in 14k gold filled wire. Here is Chinese Writing Stone, crystals formed within a black, limestone matrix, perfectly matched. Swirling purple Charoite from Russia, highlight the stamped, gold wire. Each is a Navigational Tool through layers of dimensions of hopes, dreams, and enlightenment.

Time Traveler Series

Here are some new pieces in the Time Traveler Series. I have an intricate, astrolabe from the 1800's, that shows directions, and coordinates with stars and time, for those who can read it. These pieces seem to mark various bearings or locations, as they frame fossils and stones created by the Earth over millions of years. Our past is our present, when we wear stones birthed deep inside Mother Earth.

Display Idea

A gallery owner gave me a great idea for displaying my work in a way that allows the buyer to shop within their price range. Display the pieces according to price range, grouping all pieces from the $50-$150 range together, with a small sign in one that reads $50-$150, and in the next case, $151-$250, and so on. Buyers will be drawn to the case within their price range, and you can better serve them with pieces they can afford.

Ironwood Gallery

I am now represented by Ironwood Gallery, in Ridgefield, Ct. They are a fantastic gallery filled with incredible fine art craft pieces. I'm honored to be a part of their work. Run by Betsy Halliday and Richard Herrmann, this was the first gallery we scoped out after moving here from Chicago. We bought a wonderful Robert Dancik pendant at that time. So to find my one-of-a-kind pieces, just make a visit to Ironwood Gallery, 103 Danbury Rd, Ridgefield, Ct., open Fri-Sat from 11-5, and Sun. 12-5. 203-431-3388. And don't forget their wonderful first Friday of the month gallery openings. The images are Jewel of the Orient, with a luscious purple charoite, and Secret Garden, hosting a Chinese Turquoise with peridot and tourmaline accents.
