i shipped these pieces to the san francisco gallery today. it's pretty cool, the manager of the gallery sent me a "holiday request list" back in september, but it was very vague- "3-5 pairs of earrings, with and without stones, several rings, variety of bangles, and any new designs you'd like to include"- so there's still lots of room for creativity, which is nice.
and i included these new feather pieces as well.
my parents came to visit last weekend and it was lovely.
we had a little critter snuggle fest on the couch
hazel ran a 5K in telluride, which was awesome.
girls on the run!
glenn ran it with her.
june was an excellent cheerleader
after the race, dad got some juggling instruction; it's on his bucket list.
then my parents took the girls home and glenn and i got to go for the first ski of the season, at dusk. it was fantastic.

this here is arky. when i first wanted to get serious about silversmithing, i made a flyer that said "i want your old silversmithing equipment!". he responded and helped me set up my original shop, all for free. a wonderful man!
