I just put out new work at Local Roots in Wooster. Of course, the first thing I did when I got there was order lunch and a hot coffee. Their coffee is always so good. I had curried rice soup. Delicious, hot, filling, and satisfying. After I finished, I got to work on my jewelry display.
The afternoon sun was streaming into the craft section of the store and I was struck by how lucky I am to be a part of the local, healthy food movement. There are some really talented artists represented at Local Roots. The store offers pottery, textiles, felting, leather work, and my personal favorite, jewelry.
Check out the store's website here:
I'm a big fan of the textiles.
Most of my work in Local Roots is spoon jewelry, but I also have a display case full of sterling silver earrings and stone set rings. After I finished arranging my new offerings, I headed over to the grocery section and picked up some fresh hydroponic lettuce. Local Roots is a gem of a place to shop. They have two locations, one in Wooster and one in Ashland.
This is the nitty gritty of my day-to-day struggles as an artist. I write about triumphs and failures, design and details, tools and equipment. My life/work balance is constantly changing. Along the way, I post tutorials, tips, tricks and other goodies as well.
