JAR 2011

Jewelry Artist Retreat (JAR 2011) starts tomorrow!  See photos from JAR2010.

This will be my 2nd year and am looking forward to spending an exciting week with a group of wonderfully skilled artists!  We are from NY, PA, VA, MD, IL and NC.

We come together with a flow of ideas, encouraging words, sharing, and having fun doing what we all love - making jewelry!

The garage will be full of sounds - pounding hammers of all sizes and shapes, saws cutting through metal, rasps of files smoothing edges, hissing of hot metal dropped into water, continuous rumbling of steel shot in tumblers ... along with rock and roll background music. 

It's also about food galore, including chocolates and wine.  This year, my contribution is fresh apple pies made with fruit from the NC state farmers market.  I just hope they are as tasty as they look.

Stay tuned for tons of photos!
