Open studios

I’m so excited for my stuff to be on display at my aunt’s open studios in Needham, Mass., this weekend. Judy Greenberg is an amazing - an exceptional - artist. There is no other artist like her. And she’s showing her work in the Boston area May 5 & 6. 

Here’s the adorable flier she designed for me. I love the idea of talking big mouths. I will have to capitalize on that idea …

And here are some items that will be on display. (Photos: Matthew White)

Flower babies

I’ve been making bracelets of these interconnected flowers. And then I had a thought: These babies would make cute earrings and/or pendants. Hence “flower babies” were born. I haven’t decided yet whether this pair will become two separate pendants or a single pair of earrings. 

My father told me they reminded him of earrings a woman might wear in Czechoslovakia in the 1930s. Since my pa was born in Brooklyn in the 1940s I’m not quite sure how he’d know that. But I’m flattered nonetheless.
