Enamelist Society Online Student Show

This is a little late, but I just wanted to announce that I have work in the Enamelist Society Online Student Exhibition. There is a lot of really great work in the show! It's exciting to see all the incredible ways that people are using enamel. I'm not sure how long the show will be up, but I encourage you to check out the show before it comes down!

MicroDwell & MicroBrew Event

Next weekend I will be selling my jewelry at the MicroDwell & MicroBrew event at the Shemer in Phoenix. It looks like it will be a really fun and interesting event! Here's a sneek peek of some of what I'll be selling:

The event is Saturday, November 17 from 10-6, and there's a $10 entrance fee. The Shemer is located at 5005 E Camelback Rd on the corner of Camelback and Arcadia. Come by and say hello!

Here's a little blurb about the event:

MicroDwell 2012 is an exhibit of owner-built micro-dwellings featured on the grounds of the Shemer Art Center in Phoenix. The exhibit showcases the design features of small modular structures, their varied uses, and alternative construction techniques through cost-effective ways. MicroDwell 2012 highlights the positive benefits to the environment through conscientious material selection, use of salvage materials, and minimization of waste.

The exhibit showcases the creative effort of each builder and includes varied designs from practical to artistic. Structures are 600 square feet or less, self-contained, modular, and portable. Built to reduce their impact on the environment, microdwellings are no longer an option only available to wealthy environmentalists. These micro homes are sustainable architectural solutions for those looking to build a home or studio in an affordable manner.

The opening celebration will take place on November 17, 2012, from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. with an event called Microdwellings & Microbreweries featuring Arizona microbreweries, food trucks, artist booths, lectures, and demonstrations by the builders.

Admission is $10 per person. The Shemer, located at Arcadia and Camelback Road, boasts a wonderful scenic view of Camelback Mountain. Open to the general public, the hours are Tuesday - Saturday from 10 am - 3 pm and Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:30 pm.
