New Artist Friends

Sculpted Windows Jewelry - Kristie-Lou Brigham

Here's a beautiful polymer clay cab created by Kristie-Lou Brigham, wire wrapper and polymer clay extrodinaire!!!

One of the nicest things that have come out of being involved with Gallery 141 in Lancaster is the friends I've met. I'd like to take a few minutes to introduce some of them to you.

Kristie-Lou Brigham is by far the best wire wrap artist I've had the pleasure of meeting. Her work is absolutely stunning, to say the least. Her favorite medium is wire, but she also makes beautiful polymer clay face beads. I've used a few of them in my beadwork and the pieces always sell fast once they're designed and on the market.

Kristie lives in Lancaster with Eon and her two weiner dogs. Here are a couple more of her pieces for you to enjoy (they're actually part of my wish list....heehee). You can find more of her work through

It's been some time since I posted a new blog and so much has happened. It's been a wonderful journey so far. I now have my jewelry in three different locations. If you're interested, here they are:

Olde Factory, Hummelstown, PA
Gallery 141, Lancaster, PA

The etsy shop has been a good venture. I really like the site because it has tons of hand made items. I whole heartedly believe we should support the cottage industry. By cottage industry I mean people who make hand made items for resale. Artists pour their hearts into their creations and it shows. At etsy you can find a multitude of products, including jewelry, clothing, handbags, scarves, home decor, children's toys and much, much more.

Gallery 141 is part of the downtown art scene. It's a little off the beaten path, but we make up for it with charm. There are two monthly events that, if you're ever in the area, you should check out. The first friday of each month is "First Friday", appropriately named....LOL We have a live band, sometimes two and samplings of wine for our patrons. Most, if not all, of the artists are here for people to meet personally. The third friday of each month is "Music Friday". It's almost the same as "First Friday" but fewer galleries in the downtown area participate. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10am - 4pm and until 9pm for First Friday and Music Friday.

Olde Factory in Hummelstown has been in business for 18 years. It's a three story building in historic Hummelstown and only about 3 miles from Hershey Park. They're open 7 days a week. Monday through Saturday from 10 - 6pm and on Sunday from noon to 5pm. There you can find antiques, collectibles, etc. My booth is in a glass case on the first floor.

Come on out and join the fun!!
