This website still has not yet been "officially launched"...
It hasn't even really been designed (which, as an artist, really gets to me)...
But the links do take you to working, if just preliminary, pages:

  • Sample My Wares
    • Until I've arranged for a collection of favorites & explorations here,
      please feel free to browse my online photo galleries at:
      • Picasa,
        except, the absolutely wonderful Picasa is no more,
        but you can still find many small images from there on my blog, or
      • Flickr I,
        except, though you CAN still see a few older images there,
        for some reason, I can no longer get into that to update it, so
      • Flickr II
        which is where I've been putting photos until I can find a better site
        (they do display well on Flickr, but I find its user-interface
        far too awkaward for regular use, by me or by you...).
      • Sigh...

  • Shop @ Galleries & Shows where my work is available.

    • Holiday Season Special Events:

      Holiday Sparkle Art & Craft Market (North Hills Art Center)
      November 12 - December 10
      (a completely new venue for me this year!)

      Trunk Show #1 *** (The Artsmiths of Pittsburgh, Mt. Lebanon)
      November 26 - 27
      (I'll share space "underground" with two other great artists,
      10-6 on Saturday, and 12-3 on Sunday)

      Holiday Spectacular (The Artsmiths of Pittsburgh, Mt. Lebanon)
      November 26 - December 24
      (along with all the "usual wares" in the 'Smiths Shop!)

      h*oliday mART (Sweetwater Center for the Arts, Sewickley)
      December 2 - 11, 2016
      (with a variety of special events all through the week too)

      Holiday Open House (Hoyt Center for the Arts, New Castle)
      December 3, 2016, 11 am to 4 pm
      (a special event, in addition to the usual Gift Shop hours)

      Studio Open House *** (Regent Square)
      December 3-4-5
      (I'll be upstairs in my studio (address below), plus there will be
      all sorts of other vendors downstairs, in WSCC's Holiday Gift Shop)

          I considered holding a second Open House but, with the
          Parkway closure set for Dec 10-12, decided not to.
          But I'll happily make appointments for folks who do
          want to come over on any of those days.

      Trunk Show #2 *** (The Artsmiths of Pittsburgh, Mt. Lebanon)
      December 17
      (I'll share space "underground" with seven other great artists.)
      I may be there on Dec 16 and/or 18 too, check with Artsmiths that day...

      *** Note, the three events marked with three asterisks are the ones where I'll
      be there in person. At these events I'll have more than my usual art-jewelry;
      I will also have colored ornaments & doll house / faerie garden pottery miniatures!

      Please contact me directly, or browse my blog, for more recent information....);
    • A list of potential classes I am prepared to offer at your request
      (I should probably just remove that link, as it's even more outdated:
      again, please check the blog or contact me direcely), and
    • A description of topics I can offer at your site:
      • as private instruction, or

    I've been busy making adornments, not playing on the 'net.
    What's here now are (still) just preliminary notes and quick snapshots.

    If you've known about this site for a while, you will know that I have
    regular fantasies about really spending some time fixing it up. You are
    welcome to let me know if you'd like to be notified when this site is
    officially launched. In the (likely loooong) meantime, please do check
    my blog which I do try to update on average once a week.
