So after a long hiatus from blogging, hopefully this shall be a bit more frequent! I was fortunate to do some traveling this summer (I've never had too many opportunities to explore outside of Texas!) and I was enlightened with new experiences and techniques.
This was my first try etching and enameling in the etched area, known as champlevé. I'm very happy with it. Packing the enamel into the recessed area was time consuming, and yet cathartic, it's always easy to lose track of time when doing something tedious!
One such place I visited was Haystack Mountain School of Crafts for a two week workshop with Arthur Hash on etching, enameling, and Illustrator techniques.
I'll be posting some more projects from the summer, as well as new ideas for biological jewelry!

My Sperm and Ovum Necklaces were recently featured in a show titled "Exploring Gender through the Creative Arts" at UTPA, where my piece won second place! The show had a wonderful turn out, and it was diverse with submissions: there were examples of painting, drawing, poetry, jewelry, and collage. The exhibit's purpose is to highlight gender discrimination and empowerment, while giving attention to the Gender and Women's Studies program at UTPA. A link to the article is below:
