Get Your Jewelry By Etsy

I've shut down my olden-days website, and will now be offering my work exclusively through my Etsy shop: I am, however, taking a break for the summer. So. Hope to see you there in fall 2014!

Jewelry By Jessica Designs in a New Book from Lark Carfts

Exciting news! Three of my designs are featured in a new DIY book on making shrink plastic jewelry! The book, "Shrink! Shrank! Shrunk!: Make Stylish Shrink Plastic Jewelry" will be available in hard copy in October. (You can pre-order it here.) But if you've got a Nook eReader, you can order a copy right this second!

(Look closely and you'll see my Seven Treasures earrings there on the top right...) Kathy Sheldon compiled the artists and made the whole thing happen. She's fantastic to work with, and I'm so glad she helped finally fill this niche need in DIY-land. Other shrink plastic jewelry craft books out there - and believe me I've looked at all of them - have left quite a bit to be desired.)

Anyhoo, more to come when the hard copy is released. But you can download a free preview of the book and project instructions courtesy of Lark Crafts right here. I just did. And saw that my Laurel necklace nabbed a spot on the back cover - cool!

So bottom line, if you've got a Nook, you can get your copy of the book here. If you want a hard copy, you can pre-order here. Fun times!

New Work At Works 2012!

So.....hey there! It's been a while. I've been filling orders as they come in, but not doing much of anything new on the jewelry front.

Enter December 2011, when somehow I found myself working with a whole lot of clay. I haven't added any of these pieces to my web shops yet, but for those of you who live here in Portland, you can see the debut of these new clay pieces at the art/music/food/awesome extravaganza Works, this Friday, February 24 downtown at The Old Church on 10th and Clay.

Come see the new stuff - I'll have some of my plastic work there too. I'm especially excited about the little bowls you see above - "Bowls for Two or Three Small Things" are the perfect size for holding the rings and earrings you wear every day.

Eventually, I hope to get these pieces up for sale on my Etsy site, but for now, come on down to Works and get your own one-of-a-kind pair of earrings and a hand-formed and painted bowl to put them in!

Jewelry By Jessica at the da Vinci Arts Fair 2009!

I had hoped to participate in the Da Vinci Art Fair here in Portland last year, but what with having a baby and all, it didn't so much work out : ) But this year, I am in like Flynn, and very excited about it!

The da Vinci Arts Fair is happening Saturday, December 5 from 10am-6pm, and Sunday December 6 from 10am - 4pm at the da Vinci Arts Middle School, located at 2508 NE Everett. The fair benefits the da Vinci Arts Middle School, which is a very awesome school. Admission to the show is free!

As usual, there are all kinds of wonderful artists participating, including the folks below. To browse a full list of the artists that will be at the show, visit the event page right here.

Unless I decide to do a little trunk show at my house (i.e. if I decide to make myself crazy busy - something I'm prone to do...) this will be my only show this season, so if you're here in Portland, please do come by! Hope to see you there!
