Another Season on the Bench

This time last year, I was incredibly psyched to be invited to my first gallery show at Opal Fine Arts in Leonardtown, MD. It was their inaugural jewelry show, and I guess it went well, because they have decided to do it again.

So, this year, I am even more psyched to be invited back to the 2nd Annual "Off the Jeweler's Bench" show at Opal!

Last year, I submitted a few random pieces that were the best of my work, and they sort of coordinated, color wise. This year, I created a matching collection made specifically for this show (4 related pieces, below). If last year was any indication, the event is not to be missed for one-of-a-kind jewelry! I even bought a couple of pieces last year, because it was so great.
