studio schedule


where to find me...REMEMBER...shows are an opportunity to discuss customized jewelry designs, no extra design fee*

MORE TO COME...please bear with me as I try to coordinate house-to-apartment-to new house build moves!!!

Some BIG changes in the studio regarding Open Houses...

So...sadly our friendly host location at Simply Bungalow will no longer be available for our Brown Dog Shows...(we wish Heidi the bestest...misspell intended...and look forward to seeing her on her new vintage adventures, as well as some travels with ME!!!). The studio's Spring and Fall Trunk Shows are planned to take place at the studio. Christmas location UPDATE...I'm at Simply Bungalow location!!!

For several years I have held to an adventurous list of appearances at shows (years of 30-40 shows, oh my!). BIG CHANGES!!! I've capped 2018's shows at 12! That includes the 3 Trunk Shows. If you are on the studio email list, you'll get Trunk Show details for May, September and Christmas (which will each include the schedule of upcoming studio travels). Address for Trunk Shows at the studio will NOT be posted on FB or the Website.

I no longer accomodate shopping in the studio. I keep everything organized for the next on-the-road show to avoid unecessary time packing, when I could be making MORE PRETTIES! If you NEED something, I'd LOVE to help you here on the website or via email with the designs I offer on the website. If you have special design in mind and need extra help outside of when you can find me at a show, you will be charged an *extra design fee, the time that I spend creating a new design, in communication with you.

 *an extra design fee will be charged for extra time spent in conversation, in-person appointment, extra photos to aid in design selection, putting together an idea sampler...fee starts at $20. Thank you for understanding that my time is involved in making something especially for you! Design fee does not apply towards time we discuss a design at a show! That's YOUR time! No extra charge for picking out one of my custom items, selected on website.
