Lots to do in Santa Fe


I’ve never been in Santa Fe for Thanksgiving through Christmas and I’m excited about all the fascinating  things that are going on during the holiday season.

Over the next several weeks there will be a lot of special sales events coming up by local businesses and artists.  Last weekend I went to a sale by several artists at the Women’s Club today – interesting and I’ll have to investigate how I might become part of this event next year.  I’m participating in the Holiday Fiber Market show at the Women’s Club next month so it was interesting so see the venue in advance.

Also going on last weekend is the Winter Indian Market at the Santa Fe Convention Center.   Approximately 130 artists participated   I saw a lot of beautiful jewelry, marvelous painting and photography, and a fabulous cashmere hand-embroidered coat that was definitely to die for.   I’ve always wanted a story teller figure and bought a smaller one with a striking native hairdo by Linda Fragua (Jemez Pueblo).

More Copper Pieces to Show You

I'm gradually adding three lines of copper jewelry:  polished and textured disk earrings and pendants in different "flavors", 3-D flower pendants (earrings will follow), and hammered/chased Hand pendants and earrings (not quite ready yet).  



These are prototypes for additional pieces and pieces in different metals.  The photos here illustrate what I'm doing and if the reception is positive I can produce similar items in silver and gold.   All the pieces are handmade from my original designs.
