library jewelry

today and tomorrow are open studio days.
today i did grocery shopping and visited a couple artists.

bookwork of another kind:
 malcolm and mary ann owen
connects you to their library collection
broaches live in this *case*
a repurposed book
 all kinds of stories, er, jewelry
my favorite, besides the tiny reader necklace
 home construction detail
 and this is where that hand lives
keeping the beam honest.
it's good to visit other studios
because i feel very isolated
so much of the time
mary ann and malcolm?
books, libraries, stories hold them together, too
(ps their teapots and clocks are to die for)

Cool stuff, especially love that library necklace! Open studios - its been a long time since I've visit one, that's a good idea.

su-weet! (but what is written on the note? - I read it as 'occupy preuepont' and even though I have no idea where or what a preuepont might be - the anarchist in me likes the general air of the 'occupy' movement....)

v, i had fun today
r, it's a bit of a joke, pierrepont is a tiny place, a crossroad and a swath around that, and even funnier it's pronounced peerpoint.
