I have my vision boards all around me in my studio and I still find inspiration from them. Please bring your board, glue and anything extra you might want to put on your board. We have magazines and other collage materials. Just show up and let the magic happen!

    Art Vs. Fashion Jewelry

    Art Vs. Fashion? What makes a piece "ART" and what makes it "Fashion"? I have struggled with this topic most of my adult career and before. It started in High School when I created my first line of jewelry for a school art show. I did it for art class credits but the topic of using found materials and use of the latest trends in my pieces led to questions of is jewelry "Art". This continued especially through out college were the Jewelers were not considered  fine artists as the painters and sculptors were. Though both the mediums of sculpting and color study are used in jewelry making. We as jewelers are essentially creating small wearable sculpture using stones, beads and enamel for the coloration of the work. It can be a little frustrating to get past this Craft dilemma when it comes to being taken seriously in the gallery/art scene. But I have to tell you that in my opinion jewelry has made Art accessible to the masses and that's not such a bad thing. I can create art that is made for the owner to enjoy and they inturn proudly wear the art piece out to the public instead of the few people that make it to the conventional art openings. I still question these two categorization's with my Art Jewelry and my Fashion Line of Jewelry so I do have a few of my own criteria to what makes my jewelry Art or Fashion. One, Art needs to be original, handmade and resonate with me as well the wearer. Fashion on the other hand should touch on the latest trends and styles. It should also be part of what creates someones individual style. Art and Fashion both are individual and personal so anything goes.We have discussed this in our Artists Success Circle and man did it get heated! The potters, jewelers and fiber artists all had a different view but the underlying message was that feeling of being considered and honored as an artist is what we all wanted. Really who is to say what is Art and what is not? What do you think? Please join in and be heard! For more info.on the Artists Success circle group:

    Native American Jewelry Workshop

    We had such a great time at the "Sisters Weekend Workshop" this past Saturday! The sisters had a Native American theme for their weekend together. They have a yearly tradition to spend time together with a mutually chosen theme and some set criteria. Having fun, seeing new sights, learning and expanding their skills are the few that stood out for me. Learning a skill was where I came in and I feel very honored to be a part  their special weekend. They both had this strong want to have a keep sake record for their families to share great tradition. The way that we did this was by creating a disc with the date and their names on them as part of their incredible pieces seen above. We gathered natural items and some traditional Native American materials to work with and just let our imaginations go. I taught them many new jewelry skills coupled with working together on the design. I am so very proud of them for their amazing results.
    Thank You for the experience ladies! I feel very inspired and honored!

    From Mrs. Cannon: A very special exhibition of the Middle School artwork will be on display at the Scala’s Art Center, 28 Main Street Georgetown from March 31- April 3. The Art department wanted to expand our yearly middle school exhibition into the community, and the new art center downtown was a perfect venue. We will also have convenient evening and weekend hours for students’ family and friends to view the work and tour the art center. The art gallery atmosphere gives students “a real-life connection” to the artist exhibition experience. We hope the community will come out and view our wonderful young artist work. Everyone is invited to join us for a special evening opening reception March 31 from 6:30 – 8:30.

    Exhibition Hours:

    Fashion Trends This Spring

    I am loving some of the fashion trends happening this season. Stripes are so hot right now but remember girls they can be less than flattering around our trouble areas. What I do is use them as accents or under a sweater or blazer. So cute! I am seeing allot of great corals and aquas (my personal favs). Natural gemstones and charms in jewelry. That nautical theme is poping up once again, just remember to keep it in check with the stripes and accessories can get a bit over done. I use the old proverb: put your accessories on then edit by taking at least one off. Purple is the color with kids and adults alike this time around. Juicy colors for the spring and summer collections. Fun! Fun! Fun! And yes some Day-glow for the kids is eking it's way in, but ladies a good rule of thumb is if you wore it the first time it was in fashion it might be to young for ya this time. Sucks when that happens! Always remember fashion info. is great but creating your own personal style is always in fashion!

    SHOP LOCAL ! ?

    SHOP LOCAL what does it mean to you?
    Myself and a few other shop owners in Georgetown MA have started a "Shop Local" initiative to help our towns small businesses and to boost the local economy. Our motto: Working Together for the Towns Greater Good. To get right down to it, this effects everybody in the town.   All small towns need to work together to get residence to "Shop Local". There are statistics that say the more money spent in town the more money stays in that town. Help us spread the word to try your local resources first.

    Hi, its Alex Lisa's son from kids in ART and today I had a wonderful time learning about a new type of mini-comic called a zine and it has to do with you opening your mind and spilling all your ideas onto the page. Today I made a zine called  Me, Myself, and I. Its a story plotted out in poetry, the actual story is about how zines are important to my life and everyone else's life so go out and be honest, creative raw, and absurd. If you follow these steps you'll make a kick butt zine.

    If you like what you heard and saw go to a search engine and look up "Whatcha Mean Whats a Zine?"
