Dorchester Open Studios + who this? + gems!

This weekend I will be doing my Flauxy thing at the Dorchester Open Studios!
Location: Erick Jean Center for the Arts (EJCA) at 157A Washington Street, one block south of Columbia Road!!!
Saturday & Sunday 

12:00-5:00 (gives us enough time to sleep in! Yayyy!!!) 

On another note...Boomerangs in JP had the most amazing collection of teak peppermills. they had hundreds! well, maybe 50? I dunno, it was a lot and really impressive. The stuff they display in their window is up for auction, I bid on the above hook. It was hidden behind a bunch of stuff and i figured no one else would notice it and LOVE it like was tucked all the way in the back behind some stuff. As you can see I won it! I'm a winner.
But now i'm really curious about its origins...whose signature is that? its totally a bear, right?!

Events + Project

I've been having a lot of fun making some wonderful jewelry for JP Open Studios (and the holiday events coming up!). Stop by JP Open Studios this weekend, I will have a tent outside the Eliot School (24 Eliot Street) Saturday and Sunday from 11-6.  Click here for the JPOS Map

Here are two of my favorite new designs! Smokey Quarts and pressed glass beads - tiny faceted smokey glass beads, wrapped around and around my wrist (I have about 40+ colors, see the pic below!)

And yet another event to consider...
Art of the Cocktail: The Labor of Liquor 
Oct 1st, 6pm & 8pm 
My friend Dr. Markeya Williams has put together a fabulous series at The Boston Center For Arts on libations, mmm...libations! The first event will focus on rum, if you buy your ticket before the 19th you get a wonderful discount. Yay! Head Distiller, Maggie Campbell, of the local Privateer Rum company will be on board leading the discussion. Can. Not. Wait! 

Sweet tiny lil itty small baby jesus, I did something involving a "project"
I love products. I have a specific moisturizer for almost every body part...and i have no space in my tiny bathroom. So, I finally got over my fear of making holes in my uneven weird walls and put up some shelves - Amanda really did most of the driving/handholding with this project. I got the shelves at Ikea, I dont see them on the site any more :/ and the wood at home depot. With detailed instructions from Amanda (i'm ridiculously slow sometimes) I stained and sealed the wood. And thats it. Most of the products that I use daily are happily stored on a shelf now...not scattered around the small sink :)
