We are back! We are excepting a few commissions each month. We have a beautiful selection of jewelry from our inventory.
We retired from the retail store after 27 years to have more time to enjoy what we all work for. We took 6 months off and now are back to create a limited amount of pieces for our customers and shows. I will add more of our inventory to show and sell to our website as time permits. But feel free to e-mail me or call to ask about that piece you so desire. We will do a few select custom pieces. We will be doing no more repairs unless prearranged.
Our debut of coming back will be shown at the Sept. OST “Open Studio Tour”. This is a show on Sept. 18th-20th where the public can go to various artists homes and watch their work being created before their eyes. I will be at Lucy Rau’s studio showing my work and new creations as well as many of my favorite pieces from my collection for sale. Please visit OST’s website at www.gigharboropenstudiotour.org for complete details as to location and info. This is a free 3 day show that has gone on for 23 years.
I presently have 2 articles in magazines, ”August issues” that you can read and see my work. Go to www.latitude45mag.com click on Aug. issue and turn to pages 26-28 The 2nd magazine go to www.gogigharbor.com view current Aug. issue page34-37
I look forward to creating more work just not at the pace I was. We also have an extensive selection of semi precious and very rare precious stones. Faceted and non faceted.
Though times will change some things will stay the same, The quality of our work, the affordable price range and the professional attitude we will exhibit. If it says Kit on it, you know its handmade.
