I love this Town!

I have been working in Beaufort for a few summers now.  I think six years ago was the first year.  I worked in a wine shop and met some amazing folks and became friends with them.  The next summer I was fortunate enough to be able to work for a couple of amazing women in their shops where I met and befriended even more folks.  Most of the people I have met since then have some connection to the sea.  Either they are sailors, were sailors, married sailors, want to be sailors, you get the picture, right?  So, with that single string among us it allows for many a story to be told of the adventures- good and bad!
Two Beaufort women have been quite influential on my life Alison Brooks owner of Handscapes Gallery, , and Patti Davis owner of Tierra Fina,  They both have become dear, dear friends nurturing that adventurous spirit of mine as well as sparking creativity and keeping me employed and out of Jeff's hair most days!
Hats off to these individuals!

Oooh, its a good day!

I have been so fortunate to have a few days off and my mind has been thinking of many different shapes.  I love the spiral Celtic, chaos and just never ending cycles...but I am also quite fond of the straight and narrow. So, I got out my tools and measured some wire and spent many hours pounding. I worked all day the first day and put it away after my arm felt like it was going to fall off!
I used argentium sterling silver, copper and gold filled.  I used a range of gauges from 12 gauge to 24 gauge. Here is some photos of what I did...

New work inspired by Beaufort, NC

These earrings are made with Argentium a tarnish resistant sterling silver or 14kt gold fill and natural stones. I am inspired by the golden sun and the ocean plus all the colors of the beaches and shells. I love it here!
