carlsbad caverns

one of the highlights of my trip to santa fe was visiting the carlsbad caverns. the main room has walkways that are lit up so you can see the massive cave and rock formations. we also took a guided tour with flashlights, which was really amazing. my favorite formation was the sparkly "christmas tree" (pictured above). at that point, the tour guide had us turn off our flashlights, and we couldn't even see our hands in front of our faces. really neat.

500 plastic jewelry designs

Oh my, how I love Lark Book compilations! I was recently published in this one; 500 Plastic Jewelry Designs, curated by the fabulous Susan Sloan (pages 246 and 394). The funny thing is, I took an epoxy resin workshop at Haystack with Susan when I was 19. Before the workshop, I never used color in my work. Though I don't use epoxy in my current work, my use of color is apparent. I will also be in the traveling show associated with this book, Transmutations: Material Reborn.
