I'm also doing a workshop with Keith LoBue! It's called 'Steeling Beauty' and is all about using, forging and creating with steel wire. It's giving me SO much insight and much of it carries right over to work in copper. Not ALL, but much. But I'm really digging bronze these days, too.
Not so much to show for the work yet, however. Today's been a very low energy day for me, but wanted to get back into blogging again.
Here's a picture from yesterday's PMC work, which sums up pretty much how I feel with the creative process right now!

Have a great rest of the day! xoxo Juliette

I am tired, but before starting a new week, here were some of the highlights of the past four days:
Rooftop cocktails for the Fourth, fabulous dinner with dear friends in San Jose.
Friday afternoon, carpooled to Galleria Parc Hotel in SF, then taxiied to the most heavenly dinner at Vicolleti on Green. A Must Go for Bay Area peoples.
Strolled to Club Fugazi for Beach Blanket Babylon. Hysterical!
2am, in the hotel eating chocolates and pinot, then Wayne runs to the nearest cafe for antipasti.
I leave everyone still partying and walk back to our room, passing this incredible Hitchcock 'Vertigo' staircase. I am in LOVE with them!!

I'm working with my good friend Robin of Birdsong Designs on PMC silver jewelry. She's got a kiln and tumbler, and creates fantastic components, so I'm learning a lot! Nothing to show for it yet but have made molds for pieces.
I go to see Doug this Sunday with a handful of new pieces for the tapestry. He just came back from the photographer today, and one of my pieces is on his Open Studios postcards. SCORE!
Here's what I worked on this weekend.
Tuareg (Antique conch shell beads, terracotta, metal Tuareg pendants):
Magi, Part One (Antique bone, terracotta, glass beads):
Simply made, but elegant and easy to wear.
Hope you're all having a good weekend!
