Autumn Closing In

sculpted leather mask depicting a stag with antlers

We’re starting to feel the first hints of fall here in western Washington! This is my favorite season ~ rich in color and scent, perfect temperatures, and (if you’re a gardener, like me) bountiful harvests.

We spent much of the summer traveling and working on home improvements. Life got super busy for a bit, but I’m settling back into the studio now. The changing season has me working on masks, costume accessories, and other autumnal creations.

The antlered stag mask shown here is a new variant on an old design, and I’m quite pleased with it. I hope that you will be too! There are many more costume creations in the works, as well as jewelry, hair accessories, and a few new surprises. Please check back often to see these new works as they’re added to the site!

I love to incorporate artisan made sticks into my hair accessory designs. Since I have no talent for wood or wireworking, I prefer to buy or barter with other artisans who have actually honed those skills. The resulting works are fun little collaborations of their handwork and my own.

Over the last few months, I’ve acquired some fabulous handcrafted cedar driftwood sticks, as well as copper, brass and aluminum wire sticks from GypsyMoon Art and Nicholas and Felice. Last but not least, I’ve reconnected with Morgan Reed of Morgan’s Mane.

Long story short, I’ve got some fun pieces to show you in the coming weeks! Stay tuned…
