So, I am excited to announce that I will be doing my first ever virtual First Friday event and boy oh boy do I have quite a bit planned out! This event will take place from 1-3 pm, Friday May 1, 2020 @firstfridaysantacruz on Instagram. I will have a few new special projects I am rolling out that you will get an exclusive sneak peak of, discounts on certain items on Whatknot Studios jewelry, new paintings to show and more! These offers will only be available to those who tune in so please show up to support your favorite local artist.
I hope you're all staying safe and at home in these wild times. I can't wait until this whole thing comes to a close and we can have a real in person First Friday event all together.
Until then, take care of yourselves and your family and wash your hands!
Lately, I have been taking a quick break from my fine art. I've been doing the Downtown Santa Cruz Mountain Makers Markets as a jeweler. I also want to announce to those of you who don't know that I have have a new website:
If you are interested in purchasing my jewelry please subscribe to my newsletter and/or shop on that website! I am also happy to do custom work and casting for jewelers in the greater Santa Cruz area.
Here's to a new year full of possibilities.
This Sunday I will be showcasing my jewelry at the Seymour Center along with some other amazing makers. Admission is free for members and $7 for the general public.
Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing is hosting a wonderful lineup of artists Sunday, December 1, 2019. Come check out my bronze work as well as plenty of other jewelers and makers who are selling goods for the holidays.

Come visit me and see where the magic happens! I'll have lots of new work and some less expensive functional pieces for sale.
I am a little late on this one but I hope you all got the change to see the wonderful combination of the Monterey Bay Metal Arts Guild in collaboration with the Santa Cruz Watercolor Society at the Santa Cruz Art League on Broadway and Ocean. I had 3 bronze pieces in the 2 month long show and there was a wonderful reception for the First Friday of August. If you missed it, don't worry I am doing Santa Cruz Open Studios this year and you will get a chance to see these pieces, and more!
Also, my piece made the poster!
My studio mate, Darci and I just finished wrapping up the Spring Show at our Studio on 17th Avenue. It was wonderfully successful and although it was raining, we had quite the turnout! Darci sold a ton of jewelry and I sold a painting. Keep posted for the next show!
Also, I found out I will be doing Santa Cruz Open Studios this year so mark your calendars for October and come see me!
We are happy to announce that Whatknot Studios (a side project of mine) and Darci Shea Creations are now open for business! Darci and I had our debut of our joint shop on the First Friday of February. It was a huge success and we were amazed with how many people turned up on a stormy night in February!
Thank you so much to our friends and family and to DJ FREE for playing us some sweet jams all night long. We are looking forward to many more events and hope to see you all there!
