Hello guys! A bit of a long time no see, huh? I have some pretty neat news though hahaha.
This week I was pleasantly surprised through a conversation with my professor that she creates jewelry in addition to her job as an educator.
We chatted a bit and I was honored enough to be able to see some of her work. This stuff is VERY beautiful, much of it absolutely stunning. Wire-working and designing is often a challenge, but I shouldn’t be surprised that she has this ability. Her work is based off of the stars, galaxy, and other elements of the universe. I’m hoping to be able to upload some pictures of her work later on.
Anyway, this post isn’t just to let you know that I was able to chat with a talented craftswoman, but also to include some exciting new events.
Canada Fashion College is hosting an art festival today (I know, I’m kicking myself for not being able to post this sooner ; __ ; but this is connected to other similar events) in which these semi-precious wire work pieces are being showcased.

FULL ARTISTRY IN FASHION GALLERY
Most of you may not be able to attend, which is perfectly understandable, but if any of you are currently in Redwood City, CA, please take a gander. There are also other related conventions and showcases in relation to this style of arts which I will be posting as well.
