My book "Jewelry Lab; 52 Experiments, Investigations and Explorations in Metal" is due out in September and is already on re order at Barnes & Noble and Amazon. My work has also been published in Somerset Studio Magazine, Crafting Personal Shrines by Carol Owen, The Fine Art of Enameling by Linda Darty, Making Connections by Susan Lenart Kazmer, Collage Lab: Experiments, Investigations and Exploratory Projects by Bee Shay and 500 Enameled Objects by Lark Books.

I ship USPS and please, bear with me, since I teach at a community college and at art retreats all over the country I only process orders on Fridays during the school year. If this is an issue for you, please let me know and we'll work around it. Please, convo me with any requests or questions. I love the community here on Etsy and welcome convos.
