I create pieces that I believe are special, beautiful and sometimes personally meaningful, using amazing stone cabochons from my collection. I don’t make “jewelry store jewelry”, which can be very lovely but there is plenty of that around already. That’s not my style. I want to make the jewelry that is not only pretty, but unsual…jewelry that you see with your heart, jewelry that speaks to those who are listening. ~ Michele Kurpisz

Michele has a way with words, just as she has a way with jewelry. Experience more of both on the Facebook page for Michele Kurpisz Designs. You can catch her on Instagram and Twitter too.

Many of her fine earrings and necklaces are also available at Fairport Pharmacy & Gift Shop.

Maplewood Y Craft Show – October 18

You’ll not be able to swing a dead cat at the 4th Annual Maplewood Y Craft Show, without hitting a Rochester Artisan!

Start checking off your holiday gift list by shopping among our 40 artisans. You can get a sneak preview on our website, Facebook page and event page.

But wait, there’s more! You can also visit with the Irondequoit Art Club, including a couple of demos:

12:30 to 1:00 – Drawing Portraits (David Pell)

1:00 to 1:30 – How to Tie One On – Creative Scarf Tying (S.A.M. Shrestha)

The FCTT Hi-Railers Model Railroad Club will be on hand as well. Club members will demo and display using craft techniques in model railroading.

9:30 to 11:00 – Demo of ‘Weathering’ for Realistic Effect

And here are all those Rochester Artisan members I was telling you about. This is our second year as a juried show and we’re confident you’ll love the variety and quality.

Meanwhile, back in the studio . . . the subject of podcasts came up at a recent dinner and it was suggested (thanks Michele of Michele Kurpisz Designs!) that we share some of our favorites on our website. In listing a few of my personal favorites on our Biz page, I started Googling and found more.

A couple were ones I haven’t listened to in quite some time so they will be back in my rotation now. I remember both CraftSanity and CraftCast when they were first starting out. It’s exciting to see how their businesses and art careers have blossomed since then.

I can’t personally vouch for all of these but they looked good to me and I’ll be checking them all out. If you have favorites you’d like to recommend to others, email me and I’ll add the link to the list.
