Summerfair 2009

I had the honor of Summerfair contacting me to judge the jewelry category this year! Out of the incredible jewelry that I encountered there I chose Aaron Rubinstein of Cincinnati, OH for first place. He had very intricate pieces that required many steps. His craftsmanship was outstanding! Here's his site:

After more research I realized that I am currently in a show with him at the Ohio Craft Museum! The piece that you see above is from that show.

Summerfair is an incredible show! If you are in the Cincinnati area I hope that you can make it!

At Bay

This is a found object pendant made of copper, antler, wild grass, hemp cord, and a found tin. The theme of this piece is based around the idea of animals losing their habitat, because our society keeps destroying wooded areas to build another department or grocery store.
