Well the Levy's have left St. George and landed for at least nine months, this time in La Verkin, Utah. We're hoping this might be the place to settle down for a year or more. Having no furniture, we have scoured local consignment shops and Facebook marketplace to furnish our compact, yet lovely, two story abode. High up on a hill, overlooking a valley of neighbors, we can see nearby mountain ranges and crisp night stars on a regular basis. The sunsets are also heavenly...
My new studio, while still coming together, is getting back into action and I'm chomping at the bit to make artistic jewelry one of a kind for upcoming holiday shopping. That said, and as many jewelry artists can attest, there is no toggle switch on one's creative flow. When that flow gets disrupted by life--especially involving a move of one's work space-- it's not always easy to flip the switch "on". I tend to be one of those artists so I've started busying myself by knitting wire for future wearable art jewelry projects, working my hands--and eventually my creativity-- towards "the zone". That night sky is definitely working on me... and here is my studio--still in transformation--along with a view that will continue to inspire. So much fresh air too!
In the midst of our move, I stumbled into a lovely gallery--Gallery 873-- in Ivins, Utah, that prides itself on selling eclectic art in Utah. They have taken about a quarter of my collection on consignment. I feel very fortunate to have found a proprietor who sees me as a unique jewelry artist and is willing to price my earth tone organic jewelry accordingly. Two pieces have already sold! I have been envisioning a gallery setting for the past few years. At last, a setting that promotes artistic-crafted and southwestern-inspired jewelry like mine! Amen.
So if Tina's Sedona online jewelry looks a bit "light" right now, it is because, in addition to the consignment arrangement, today (9/30/19) I am attending a gallery event and selling additional pieces taken from the website. After that the unsold pieces will re-appear. Poof!
I hope you are enjoying my jewelry store blog. If so, please forward to a friend so they can subscribe for all things good from Tina's Sedona--a one of a kind artistic jewelry website. Thank you!
