I'm excited to announce that I'll be at Duluth Mom's Blog "Bloom" event! It's on May 3rd, from 5:30-8:30 at Duluth's Clyde Ironworks. I will have a table in the balcony selling some of my jewelry, doing demos.... although I'm not sure what to do just yet, and I will also be informing everyone on my summer workshops. AND!!! I am giving away a spot in one of my earring workshops for a "mom's night out". It's bound to be a great event... hope to see some familiar faces!
I am once again donating to my favorite, local event... the Duluth Traverse Gala (a COGGS fundraiser).
The Duluth Traverse trail is quickly becoming the largest multi-use trail system within an urban environment. When this project is completed, there will be over 100 miles of trail connecting all neighborhoods within the city of Duluth, MN.
Many hard working volunteers have put in a tremendous amount of time and effort to make this trail system possible for mountain bikers, runners, hikers, and snowshoers. The proceeds from this gala make what these volunteers do, possible.
This year's donation is a private ring building lesson in my studio. Tickets for the March 17th event are still available for purchase on their website.
Seventh & Stone and special guest and friend, Karla Rae Designs from Arden Hills, MN, are hosting a tent event on the corner of 803 7th Ave in Two Harbors, MN. It will be held August 13th and 14th from 9-5.
You will find a wide assortment of Seventh & Stone jewelry and also artwork by the multitalented Karla Bradley, including jewelry, encaustic paintings, and woodblock prints!
The annual "Under The Spreading Chestnut Tree" festival will be happening across the street as well. So many great artists in one convenient location.

Over the summer I was approached by Jeremy Kershaw of "Heck of the North" to design and fabricate three awards for the 100 mile gravel bike race. The race starts and ends right here in Two Harbors, MN on October 4th 2014.
It was an amazing opportunity and I quickly accepted the offer. I discussed some ideas with Jeremy and got to work.
The men's award is based off of the event's logo. I used two pieces of heavy gauge sterling silver, cutting and stamping the logo into one of them. I love how the wave pattern resembles both Lake Superior and a bike cogg. I riveted this piece onto a backplate and added a patina to add depth to the design. A second tag was added with the tagline "Ride the good line", the date of the event, and of course "fastest man" status.
The women's award was inspired by some other necklaces I make. Jeremy liked how the design resembled a bike fork, so we went with that. I was able to find a perfect basalt stone from the shore and it happens to be what is known as a "wishing rock". They say if you keep a wishing rock nearby and make wishes on it, they have a better chance of coming true. I also added a hand sawn cutout of the logo to the side. A matching pair of earrings completes the prize.
Jeremy didn't want to leave out the last place winner either. A simple Lake Superior basalt cairn on supple black leather cord is a great consolation prize.
The event is still on the search for volunteers too! If you feel inclined, you can sign up here.
A bit of a short notice, but I want to mention that I will be selling my wares at Duluth's Harvest Festival this Saturday (9/6/14) from 10-4 and possibly later. My booth is #33... I'll be on the grass of the main stage near the yoga area. Come and check out the huge farmer's market and indulge in some good food and entertainment.
