Shows coming this Summer!
A collaboration of Artists and Trees Atlanta
Trees not only clean our air, cool our city streets and, help to combat climate change. They also are an important part of healing our minds and protecting our bodies. I'm so thankful to be included in this group project for the Trees Atlanta @artistworkshopseries raising awareness of the importance of trees in our communities. For this project I wanted to share the process that I use for creating collage pieces with dried and pressed leaves, plants and flowers. My piece incorporates a Red Oak Leaf. I dried and pressed the leaf, built a reclaimed wooden frame and then poured epoxy over the piece. I also incorporated Sage and Hydrangea leaves. #33oaks #treesatlanta Thank you, Trees Atlanta for your work. And, for including me!
I’ve been working so hard on our new house….that story is coming soon…That, I have been really only working part time on my art business. I’ve been struggling a bit to keep up with inventory but, I am plugging a way at it. For you folks with custom orders, I appreciate your patience!
In the mean-time I’ve been busy making earrings. It takes me just about an hour, from start to finish to make each pair. So, that means, cutting the raw metal to size, filing pieces to solder, soldering all the components, finishing/polishing the work and then setting stones. Lots of steps!
But, I’ve been getting great feedback about them. My new Stud and Hoop earrings have gotten especially great feedback as well. Customers have said that they are comfortable to wear and can be great everyday adornments! Success!
They are Silver studs with either mixed metal hoops, or all silver hoops. And, I am able to offer a variety of natural stones: Hematite, Carnelian, Snowflake Obsidian, Mother of Pearl, Turquoise, and more. Send me an email if you have any questions!
Thank you to everyone who has been supporting my work and my one-woman show!
I have been really enjoying making my new bandana slides! I love wearing them and sharing them.
I had a great collaboration making Four Leaf Clover slides for Jenni Earle in Winston-Salem and also CBD Hemp slides for Blühen Botanicals here in Knoxville.
Since I’ve been putting them out in the world, I have been getting lots of inquiries about how best to wear them. First of all, I found this awesome blog post about ways to wear Bandanas and this one about the different ways to wear them…Hey, you could totally add a slide to these styles too!
Secondly, I thought I’d share how I wear the slides.
These slides can also be used as rosettes for horse bridals! How cool is that!
How do you wear your scarves and slides?
Hello and, Happy New Year!
I have had a wild year, starting a new business. I appreciate so tremendously, all of the love and support that I have gotten. I appreciate you all so much.
Than being said, it has NOT been easy. I’ve had to take a step away from producing silver jewelry to focus on the real flower pieces. And, to be honest, that hurts my heart a little. But, I am going to try to take the next months to get back into it and produce some new silver work. I’ll post new pieces on my Instagram @brigidko
My Real Flower work will be up and available for another month at Bliss on Gay Street, in Downtown Knoxville.
And, I am working hard on some new collaborations with some awesome artists. More details tba soon! I’m soo excited!
Also…. I am getting ready to go on an epic adventure! I have an incredible opportunity to go to Patagonia, Chile at the end of January! I can’t believe how lucky I am! I am also slightly terrified…but, isn’t that the point of life?! Being pushed to you limits, exploring, spending time with friends and family?
Ok, that’s all for now.
I just wanted to say thank you! Happy New Year! Love each other and be kind to yourself!
