Springtime In the City

I wanted to post some new images of work I have been working on for this spring. Very excited about my new line of delicate branches. I collected specimen right around Patterson Park on my daily walks where I find much of my inspiration.

I have some new necklaces, earrings and bangle bracelets I still need to list. Stay tuned....

Tigerlillyshop Trunk Show, Saturday!

I'll be at one of my favorite shops in Frederick, MD for the wintery Fire and Ice First Saturday celebration! Street level ice sculptures are on display throughout the shopping district for this special event!

February means that love is in the air at The Muse... Check out this great boutique full of handmade wares, perfect for thoughtful Valentine gifts. I'll have a selection of my mixed metal botanical jewelry for sale, as well as some of my button work. Make a night of it and enjoy a stroll through this historic shopping district, grab a hot chocolate and be part of one of the most fun events of the winter!

I have been working on this fun Woodland Finds board : .

There won't be a huge display, I have a 3" space for my necklaces, earrings, rings, a few other one of a kind pieces.
