ZIP-DANG!

one of my favorite shops got a new shipment of bling earlier this month. ZIP-DANG has some earrings and as of right now they can only be found in their Wisconsin store. It is always a pleasure to work with shop owners to make bling that captures their vision and appeals to their customers. Thanks to Natalie for giving me a nudge to shake things up a bit!

Here are some studio shots...

I am honored to be in the same building as the glass flowers shown above. These flowers have influenced me since I first saw them fifteen years ago. I can not think of a more perfect place for my enamel work nor could I have imagined my work could possibly end up here. I am grateful and excited and don't know what could really top this.
