Baby groundhog

It was a gorgeous summer day today. We went for a stroll at the UConn Campus. The University is almost deserted during summer weekends, and the wildlife is thriving. We saw several critters, but this little groundhog let us film him. Poor thing was terrified, and yet absolutely adorable:)

We also disturbed this guy during his lunch:)



Some new "redecorations" on campus:)

New jewelry collection

Finally a new blog entry. It's been ages since I had time to update my blog...

I started making bezel set jewelry for my etsy store. I love metalsmithing, but it takes time to make at my home studio.  Take a look at some of my new designs.

I bought this Kingman turquoise cabochon during my visit to Albuquerque. I was amazed by the number of jewelry supply stores in New Mexico. I wish we had something like that here in Connecticut...


Here is a modernist-inspired pendant with unakite. I am fascinated with mid-century modernist movement, and this pendant is inspired by American studio art jewelry designers.


Some pieces didn't make it to my store, I loved them too much:) Here is a beautiful fluoride teardrop set in sterling silver



I will be adding more metalwork jewelry soon!
