Gearing Up For The Scott County Art Crawl

I work well under stress!

Tom and I are selling our house.  We are moving to the lake and at the same time I am getting ready for 

I am also rehabbing my arm from frozen shoulder syndrome after having Hydroplasty.  I have never been very good at taking care of myself properly and I suppose that will never change.  

So in-between playing painter and cleaning lady I get to find some jewelry desk time.  One thing is certain my creative juices keep flowing despite the stress level or pain.  They have a mind of their own and ask to be created.

This latest design of mine has been brewing for nearly a year.  Not sure why it has taken this long for me to finally give it it's due course.

What I can say about this design is this.  They are long, sexy and very earthy.  I do more classic pieces also and always have them for sale in my show but I do really love earthy jewelry.  I am still at a bit of a quandary as what style to call them.  I would love to entertain your thoughts on the matter.

I have also slipped in a few new bracelets into the mix.  

More designs will be coming this week.  A very good start to 

October 5th, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm. 

 In my home.  I am number 19 on the Art Crawl Map.  I will have maps at my home so you can visit the many artists in the Scott County area.

Hope to see you at the Crawl!!!!!


  1. I am absolutely in love with your necklaces, so original and gorgeous.

  2. I just love the new necklaces. They really remind me of amulets or talismans.

  3. I love your new necklaces. They look bohemian tribal.

  4. Kristin, your new pieces are FAB and I am honored that you have chosen to use some of my beads in your designs. Best of luck for great sales at the crawl. You'll probably sell out! :)

    1. Hope so!!!!! If I don't...I have a gallery owner coming the next day and I am sure she will be taking some.

  5. Your designs are wonderful! Definitely a tribal feel to them...I like the bohemian tribal comment. You've created a new category of jewelry!

    1. I think that you could call it a Modern Bohemian Tribal. Thanks Laurel.

  6. Stunning!! Thank you so much for using my beads. I am honored! Much success for you with your new designs!
