The I am thankful for the experience to have a new-found Hawaiian influence within my art.

Since Club Creative Studio relocated to Hawaii, I have naturally created items that have had a Hawaiian flair to them.  Most times it includes the use of shells.

It is probably no surprise that using shells in creative ways are popular here.  I have discovered new ways to incorporate shells and ocean-themes into recent jewelry art that I create. It has been a fun challenge as well as an expressive opportunity.

The island of Oahu has many inspirational factors to spark creativity. Culture, bright colors, flora, fauna, ocean waves, undersea life, mountains, craters, tropical jungles and sandy beaches just to name a few influences.

I have combined beads, charms, wires and shells in creative ways, and I see no limitations to the creative process featuring shells.

If you are interested in having a special shell wire-wrapped, I do custom requests and would love to help you transform one of your collected shells into wearable art.  You may also check out the inventory online to see if there are readily available items to chose from. http://www.clubcreativestudio.com

N is for New Location

Good bye PA home.

It happens in steps. There is a NEW LOCATION on the horizon for Club Creative Studio. The moving process is not a task done quickly, especially when three different shipments are involved. I said good bye to many packed items in May, and vacated the studio as I knew it in Philadelphia in June.

During the month of July I spent time with family in various places and states and now I look forward to August.  In August I will receive my first shipment of goods for setting up the new studio space.

The first shipment of boxes will include my inventory, select beads, some supplies and a few tables and my swivel chair.  I have included my lighting, camera supplies and a few other must-haves to make the start of my studio feel somewhat functional until the main shipment arrives within the following month, with the rest of my studio needs.

While moving is stressful, it is also exciting.  I have relocated to HAWAII and there is SO MUCH inspiration around me. I have been sparked to create new paintings, take wonderful photos and adore nature in a new way with an deepened appreciation of bright color (like those found in Hawaiian shirts). I can’t wait to create in the SPIRIT OF ALOHA!

I love my new home in Hawaii.
