guest star friday #27...the west coast edition part 1

for the next couple of fridays while i'm on the west coast i thought i would feature the work of jewelers who live in the cities where my trunk shows are. this week i have two shows in a row, portland today and seattle tomorrow. i'll begin with portland jeweler kristin mitsu shiga. kristin makes wonderfully tactile work with a layering of different materials and lovely details. i am especially fond of the first piece due to the yellow color. i also really like the hand stitching.
next is lori talcott from seattle. lori is my mentor. i met her years ago at penland and later went on to apprentice and work for her. lori's jewelry is loaded with rich detail and each piece is incredibly refined and thoughtful.

you can see more images of her work at this link.

thanks for reading.
