Ring of Keys, 2014
After a friend sent me some vibrant crepe paper that rolls beautifully, I was inspired to create a jazzy, wearable set of keys. It's a play on the Ring of Keys framed piece I made several years ago that was inspired by an antique Victrola key. Sometimes I make single key pendants... you'll find step-by-step instructions on how to make one of your own in the All Things Paper book.

The third pendant is this golden design, Leaves and Loops.
Morris will be hosting workshops for children during the show - there is a paper making class this Saturday, a tour for very young children in October, and paper collage and pop-up book classes in November.

A local newspaper reporter recently did an article about my work in conjunction with the opening that you can read here. The photographer took this picture of a poinsettia ornament that he suspended on a bottle lantern that happened to be on the table... I think it's a pretty cool impromptu photo!
