Dear Friends, We interrupt this busy holiday season for a rare blog updateâ€¦ You may have noticed, I havenâ€™t done any holiday shows (yet) this year. Â Thatâ€™s because I am simply up to my eyeballs in other, marvelous commission projects. Â (More about that in a minute!) Â But I wanted to let you all know that […]
Happy Holidays! I’ll be tinkering with this site over the next few days; meantime, check out my new Etsy store: Arcanametalwork.etsy.com
Load-in tonight! Fair tomorrow! Bling right now! Enamel on fine silver; on forged sterling neckwire, with peridot and blue topaz. Detail: enameled silver with peridot. Detail: green enamel on silver, with “Swiss Blue” and “London Blue” topaz.
Yesterday I made Art. I’m supposed to be making Product. I’m supposed to be making stuff that I can do quickly so that the labor cost is low. So that it sells, so that I can keep this as my job. But that’s not how that piece was going to go. It needed to be […]

Why yes, it was a gorgeous day! While hanging out afterwards, my mom got a call from my sister, who had been […]

I am in love with the work I am making. I am utterly in love with my shop. I love that I can stay up and keep working, all night if I have to or want to, or just until I run out of gas. I’m on a short dinner break; a fresh pot of […]
CloisonnÃ© enamels by Peggy Foy, enamel on fine silver, 1″ diameter each. Still in process – there is a little more finishing work (polishing) to be done to the surface; I ordered some diamond-grit sanding pads like we used in class so this is as good as they’re gonna get for the next few days. […]
Dear Friends, As many of you know, I recently made the transition to working full time as a studio artist, and as an inaugural studio project I participated in “Penguins On The March,” a public art project to benefit Woodland Park Zoo’s newly renovated penguin exhibit. Similar to Seattle’s ‘Pigs On Parade’ exhibit, participating artists […]
The above is a teaser. This project ate up the first 9 days since the exodus. It knocked me on my ass for the past two. It was good. I’ll say this: I’m not in college anymore, and the all-nighters aren’t as easy as they used to be. Or maybe I’m just out of practice. […]
