Last Friday, my new steel line debuted at Waverly House Gifts and Gallery. The opening night reception was a great success and I enjoyed spending time with the many friends and family who came to offer their support.
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you may remember that I’ve been working all summer creating new pieces using steel, sterling and gold. It took me several months and a lot of experimenting, but I think I have found my design voice in this material. I’m loving the look I’m achieving with the mixture of metals.
Steel is great because it’s inexpensive and strong, but it’s dirty and takes more time and patience. In the end, I get a look I can’t quite achieve with silver. I also feel like I can experiment more with it since the cost of waste is much less than it would be in silver or gold.
If you missed the opening reception Friday, the show continues at Waverly House through October 27th. Stop by and see it if you have the chance. I don’t think you’ll regret it!
