Hayley tells The Rickie Report, “I have been making whimsical clay figures since 1988. I try to make them fun for the buyers and fun for them and their friends to look at. The artwork has expanded over the last 26 years as I have tried new ideas and perfected new methods”.

“Dogs” by Hayley Zimmass

 

 

 

“New artwork is always coming into my head and new techniques for making it more whimsical and more fun are a constant, ongoing process. My bright colors are a signature part of my work, as is the blending of those colors through my airbrush techniques”.

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“Fish” by Hayley Zimmass

“The figures are all sculpted from blocks of clay. They are then fired in one of my kilns to harden them. Then the colors are applied, and back into the kiln again up to a bit over 1800 degrees. Then the clear glaze is applied and the figures are again fired in the kiln to get the finished artwork”.

Jan tells The Rickie Report,”I have always been a crafty sort of person but did not begin my ‘art’ career until I was in my 40s, and then, it was by accident”… A girlfriend wanted to take a class in stained glass but didn’t want to go alone, so I signed up too. Little did I know that six weeks later I would be hooked! There was so much to learn that I became an apprentice, and then took a job in a commercial glass studio. In the next five years I was fortunate to work on many varied and interesting projects as well as to teach classes. 

 

 

HAEkirchoffkaliedescope

Kaleidoscope by Jan Kirschhof

 

 

 

“Now I work from my home studios in Parkland, Florida and Dahlonega, Georgia doing private commissions, as well as creating inventory for the shows I participate in each year”. In addition to traditional stained glass in the lead and copper foil methods, Jan specializes in what is known as an “overlay” process. By creating a silhouette image from metal and affixing it to a piece of glass, she attains a great deal of detail in a cost effective way.

Jan goes on to share, “The gourd art came about, again, by accident. While shopping in a home furnishing store I chanced upon what I thought was a beautiful rustic vase. It turned out to be a gourd. I bought it and after much contemplation I decided “well shoot, I can do this”.

 

 

 

HAEJanKirchhofgourdarttriple_border_thumb

Gourd Art by Jan Kirchhof

 

 

 

She hunted down some gourds (not easy to find in south Florida) and began her journey. “A lot of what I know about gourd art has come from books and trial and error. The finer techniques I have learned in workshops from artists involved in the Florida Gourd Society. I am currently a member of the American, Florida, and Georgia Gourd Societies”.

Ricki Levine shares, “After retirement from a career in the Computer Industry, boredom set in! I began knitting, a skill I had learned as a child. I was enthralled by the changes in the yarns and colors – and they inspired me to create my own designs. When I was out in one of my creations, people would ask to purchase one–I was amazed to discover that I had creative talent when I had only exercised the mechanical side of my brain during my career”!

 

 

HAELEVINE1

Hand Knit by Ricki Levine

 

 

Ricki’s Knits are all original creations, hand knitted by her. Ricki’s products include jackets, shawls, ponchos, scarves, capes and caplets. Each unique garment is a combination of 25 yarns of different textures and colors that blend together to create a unique piece of fiber art. “My color sense and attention to detail allow me to produce designs that are both fashionable and artistic. Currently, I am in several Florida boutiques in Naples, Sanibel Island, and Coral Gables, and display my work at the Howard Alan events in South Florida. I’m not bored anymore”!

 

HAELEVINE

As Ricki’s husband says, “Every woman looks better when they wear one of my wife’s garments”! (She tells us, “Obviously he is extremely prejudiced, but I hope you will enjoy wearing my designs as much as I enjoy creating them for you”).

 

 

This art show is a perfect setting for shoppers eager to kick off the season and get a jump-start on their holiday shopping while exploring the diverse art displays and avoiding the hectic and crowded malls. Festival patrons will have the opportunity to explore the original work of more than 200 of the finest artists in the country that have been selected from hundreds of applicants. The jury process ensures exhibits of quality work with broad appeal and prices that will be suitable to many budgets. The artists will be set up along 4th Avenue, one block north and south of Atlantic Avenue in Downtown Delray Beach.

Jewelry Trends to Consider

Look at any fashion magazine: You will see jewelry and accessories to go with the new season’s clothing.  What to create for the fashion-conscious art patron?  The Rickie Report shares some insight into Jewelry Trends.  

 

 

 

 Jewelry Trends

 

 

From large, massive pieces of jewelry to a simple pair of stud earrings, it is clear that jewelry as an accessory is here to stay.  For artists who create jewelry pieces, it is important to understand the latest trends but at the same time, stay true to your own artistic self!   Thankfully, we live in an era where variety is not only accepted but embraced.  

 

 

METALS

 

  • Gold has always been the standard, but metals ( think silver, steel, bronze) are hot.  For those working with non-metallic mediums, think of these in terms of a color palette.  

 

  • Metal tubes ( check out your local hardware store or plumbing supplier)

 

  • Chains!  Even better: Multiple chains!

 

  • Watch parts and keys are still big influences

 

  • Wire – wrapped gemstones, cabachons, shells

 

  • Bent wire.  So you’re not into wire-wrapping.  A simple twist of metal is sometimes just enough to enhance a bracelet.
  • Stacked rings ( make them interchangeable, so your clients come back for more)

 

 

Organic

 

  • Be Colorful!

 

  • Consider different fibers  and various textures (check out a local knitting shop) 

 

  • Embroidery floss

 

  • Love a piece of fabric?  Make a wide bracelet!   (Addition of rhinestones or other bling is optional)

 

  • Bohemian styles

 

  • Native American styles

 

  • Woven with chevrons or intricate patterns

 

  • Stop during your walk at the beach and look for shells with natural holes

 

  • Up-cycle scrabble tiles, papers, photos, bottle caps

 

 

Leather, Wood, Etc.

 

  • Think male!

 

  • Think female!

 

  • Wide cuff bracelets with or without metal accents

 

  • Wood beads on leather

 

  • Wood beads with chain

 

  • Wood beads with rubber “O” rings ( get thee to your hardware store!)

 

  • A small portion of a driftwood branch can be wire-wrapped and hang as a simple pendant

 

 

Things to consider:

 

BODY JEWELRY

 

  • Think ABOVE the elbow for bracelets

 

  • Consider the FULL FOOT instead of just the toe rings

 

  • Arm cuffs

 

  • Bib necklaces

 

  • Ankle chains with charms

 

  • Long necklaces that can be worn in front OR in back ( to highlight some of the back-baring fashions)

 

  • Pearls NEVER go out of fashion!

 

 

There is no “right” or “wrong” with jewelry design.  We point out that as concern for easing neck pain and back pain increases, lighter – weight neck pieces are going to become “hot”.  Your patrons may have metal allergies, so be prepared to offer different earring wires.  AND don’t forget those who may not have pierced ears.  It is easy to convert pierced earrings into clips.

 

The Rickie Report looks forward

to sharing

YOUR jewelry creations with our readers.

At the C & S Bead Show you really get a chance to talk with the creatives who not only make beautiful jewelry, but often make the beads themselves.  This Show runs Friday and Saturday, May 16-17. If you are not a jewelry maker yourself looking for supplies, there will be plenty of hand made pieces of jewelry to choose from!  If you are a beader and interested in offering classes or selling your work we suggest you contact the show promoters!  The Rickie Report shares the details in this article.

Place of Hope is a unique faith-based, state-licensed child welfare organization providing family-style foster care; family outreach and intervention; maternity care; safety for victims of domestic minor sex trafficking; transitional housing and support services; adoption and foster care recruitment and support; and hope and healing opportunities for children and families who have been traumatized by abuse and neglect throughout our region.

The Rickie Report spoke with Sarah Anne Livoti about Place of Hope.  It is hard to imagine this large and extensive organization grew out of the desire of Christ Fellowship Church to reach out and help just one child.  While their program is faith-based, one does not need to be a believer to get involved.

We noticed that at “Seven Stars”, craft projects are a regular part of the routine.  Sarah was excited at the idea of local artists volunteering a few hours of their time to feature a craft or art project for a group of children.  She stressed that this does not have to be a long-term commitment  (though Place of Hope welcomes those as well).

Since the children at Place of Hope range in 5 to 18 years of age, their needs vary.  Experiencing art with a community-cased artist would give them a new, inspiring experience. In addition, volunteers can speak about how to open a bank account, how to register to vote or share a beneficial skill that will make a difference in the lives for their future.  Sharing information about your career can ignite a spark that will take a child further into a positive life situation.

When asked about direct donations, Sarah referred to the exciting online auction being spearheaded by Evelyn Ortiz Smykla and Jonathon Ortiz-Smykla of OSGS Gallery.  Offers of art materials are always welcome and they are most welcome with someone to lead an activity.
