I am visiting our sadly ignored blogspot as I do see a bit of traffic. Don't hate us. Life has a way of happening, doesn't it?
The Gilded Gypsies have been uber busy. Several new publications for your viewing pleasure. Anne was a featured artist in Where Women Create, May-July with a fabulous article featuring her cunning little studio in Sonoma, California. 10 fabulous pages and still available on newstands! Check it out!
I had a feature article in Jewelry Affaire magazine, Spring 2015 issue. 4 pages (It's not 10, but I was right proud just the same) on a collection of Tintype jewelry I created using some of my favorite things, gem tintypes, cut steel and buckle buttons. Upcoming article in the Fall issue with Carved Shell button jewelry.
We were also part of the Art Is You show in Petaluma, California in April. We were featured vendors and had the opportunity to host the welcoming hospitality event for a wonderful group of students, vendors and teachers that included Michael and Andrea DeMeng and Susan Lenart Kazmer. We met some great friends and got to see the work of talented others including Nellie Wortman and Lynn Suprock. I am giving a peak at our wonderful booth which we've decided was spectacular but too much work for two old broads like us.
I'll do better, I swear it. Marie~
