Valentines and progress on the new pieces!

Caramia Visick

Today is January 8th, feels like there has been more 2015 days than just 8! I have been working daily on new things for the New Year, new images for Valentine's Day and new things for upcoming shows! 

Lets start with Valentine's Day, it's a made up holiday, but it's a great excuse to get girly, eat chocolates and drink champagne! I found a good pile of vintage images that I couldn't pass up! And here's what I've come up with so far!

Progress on new projects? These 3-pieces were polished up yesterday and hopefully today the mold process will begin! 

 

All the nicks, scratches, changes in shape are made. Then they are polished. Next molding! What color for the bird though?

There's still a cherry to work on, some acorn earrings and a bangle! That's a lot!! 

Lastly, shows! I'm going to LA first in 2-weeks! Then I'm going to Tucson, Arizona, yep that huge gem and jewelry show, then SF.  The only show that is open to the public is Tucson, so if that's close to you, please visit!!!  

Doubletree, To Bead True Blue, Grand Ballroom, Booth G105. February 1-9. 

Happy New Year!!!!
