I suddenly have space in my September 16-20 Silversmithing Basics workshop. Link in bio for more information and/or to register. There is also space in “A Bee’s Garden”, a botanicals and bugs workshop I’m teaching in Greenville, NC September 2-6. DM me for details on that course.
.
In other news, I will have several pair of fern earrings available in next week’s shop update. August 15, 9am PST.

Happy Thursday!

We have so many itty-bitty quails scurrying about our valley floor. They make me smile.
.
These are both hand fabricated entirely from sterling silver scraps. Now what…? Should I turn them into two separate charms on one necklace or should I incorporate them into another raised silver bowl? .

I’m pretty excited about this collection. There are some larger, one of a kind sculptural pieces available. I probably will never be able to make anything like them again!

While I appreciate that my work inspires my students, I am equally as inspired by their energy, passion, and personal growth. In a recent Sculptural Silversmithing workshop I taught, @robin.mcgauley.metalsmithing raised a bowl and handfabricated a dragonfly to solder to the edge of the bowl. Such exquisite work! This piece pictured grew from the seed she planted within me. I have now challenged her to make yet another bowl with even more adornments. Beautiful work, Robin, and thank you for inspiring me!

It’s been a busy couple of months and I’ve been cranking in the studio on all sorts of new fabricated botanicals. I have exciting inventory for my scheduled July 17 shop update. That’s a couple of weeks out yet, so I’m wondering if I should do a spontaneous update with a collection of natural stone and recycled beach glass rings? Maybe Tuesday evening? I’d appreciate your input.
.
I’m in love with this glass sent to me by @mamzelleseaglass - thank you! 🙏🏻 It makes for bright, playful jewelry.

I cannot even begin to express how excited I am about this hollow form lotus seed pod!
.
Flip through the following images to see a bit of my process in making it. I am over the moon thrilled about how it turned out. Now, should it be a brooch? A large pendant?
.
Aaaack! Can you see me dancing on my workbench?

I was recently invited to teach two different master silversmithing workshops in 2020 and I’m thrilled!
.
The first will be during the Tucson gem show in February. The second will be @idyllwildarts (near Palm Springs, CA) in June. Both will cover either botanicals and/or sculptural critters.
.
If you would like more information about these workshops when it is available, send an email directly to me at: ringgoldnic@gmail.com and I will be in touch as soon as I have details.
.
Yay!

I created a ruckus while sawing, hammering, filing, sawing, sawing and hammering some more. Meanwhile, this vibrant Douglas Sunflower 🌻 waited patiently, perched in water, a silent witness to the cacophony of ear-piercing noises streaming from my workbench in my hope of honoring its beauty with my two sore hands.

Thank you, Doug. 🙏🏻

I’m taking a 4-day break to escape the smoke draining into our valley from the surrounding mountain wildfires, breathe fresh salt air, and dive into beach rock collecting therapy on Lopez Island.
.
I’ll be back to work Friday filling orders and preparing a new collection for September’s shop update.
.
Thank you for your patience!

In today’s sculptural silversmithing workshop I’m teaching students how to fabricate shadow boxes. This was my demo. Their creations are blowing my mind!

Teaching always inspires me to push my limits. I’ve been working on this Rudbeckia on the sidelines while my students are busy creating their own masterpieces.

Hand fabricated (not cast 🙂). Swipe to see a handful of process shots.
