We are BACK from the DOMINICAN!!

March 26, 2009 | Filed under: Uncategorized

My family and I have just returned from a holiday in the warmth and sun of the Dominican Republic. It was an incredible holiday made even more fun by having our grandson, and of course his parents, enjoying the week with us.
I must say that the last 2 days of our holiday, I kept designing jewellery in my head so I knew that it was time to return. I did find some Dominican amber and am looking forward to working with it.
It took a couple of days to adjust to the cold here, but spring is coming as I see buds peeking through.

I find it hard to believe that my Open House was just a few weeks ago. This 3 day event was an amazing success and I thank everyone who came. My son- in-law designed the invite which was fabulous and no doubt played a part in encouraging people to come. We had a great turnout. There were many new people as well and this is a result of my pieces being featured in the Style section of our local paper, the Hamilton Spectator. Three of my friends helped me “man” the Spring Sale. Thank you, dear friends.
I consider myself a very fortunate person and am very grateful for all this help and support.

I have been looking at my schedule of events, and a number of shows are coming up. I will be in Toronto in the Distillery District, May 23 & 24 and here for the Beyond the Valley Studio Tour in Dundas, May 30 & 31. Do check my events page for details or click on the Links.
I am looking forward to another new and exciting experience. The Circle Arts Gallery in Tobermory will be showing my jewellery this season. They are open May 16 to October 12 in 2009. This is the gallery’s 40th year. Check the link for details. This is one of the finest galleries that I have been in and their list of artists is impressive. It is well worth a visit.
I am now planning and working out designs for new pieces. Yesterday, I came home with an large supply of just incredible stones that I have not had before. The colours and shapes are wonderful. These gemstones are speaking to me so I know that it is time to get back to work!!
