come and join a new vt art/design event

Artist As Designer-1200x628

hello friends, customers and students.
please pay attention to my friends new project, starting at their wonderful spot in waterbury. right behind the prohibition pig. there is the treasure of property that offers beautiful pottery, barns and vermont country atmosphere, which always includes a homy, welcoming, warm hearted, family- creative vibe with wonderful selected handmade local products that they advertise and promote this year in a special way for the first time.
my very first friends here in vermont (2006), wonderful, warmhearted and universally talented georgia ayers and her known husband, potter jeremy ayers, (many of you will know him from farmers markets or many stores throughout the north east kingdom, http://www.jeremyayerspottery.com/) decided to start a project called “artist as designer”. they decided to give  designers and creative entrepreneurs the platform to connect with people and demonstrate their process of work, inspiration and motivation of why they want to do what they do.
you have the chance to see a lot of art, get to know their creators and also get familiar with this property that is handed down from generation to generation and is absolutely romantic and fantastic for innovative , creative projects in the future.
we all hope you will come and support this event, getting to know us as artists/designers, getting to know our process, inspiration and motivation of our work and also start to understand what it takes to be one of those who are willing to take risks in order to do what they looove to do.
i hope i will see lots of you at this wonderful scene.
jane

such a touching compliment that keeps me doing what i do

this is from my wonderful and inspiring  student eve and came out of the blue in a time that i was struggling, doubting and simply sad….it brought me back to the place to stay more positive, in general but especially right now. its hard but worth it to stand up for your visions and your believes.and small things can grow big…

thank you eve, for getting me going.

“Thank you so much for everything.  I do not tell you enough, your workshop and classes are my happy place. Thank you for offering your beautiful, bright, sunny self and family and home. You have such a warm bright light inside of you.  I am endlessly grateful for you and werkstatt.”

“I can’t contain all the wonderful things I have to say about you. You are such a huge light in my life! I wish you knew. We ALL love being around you so much. . I wish you knew how we all feel about you! I really do appreciate you more than words can tell. You and your classes are the best part of my week. The homey vibe of werkstatt along with your laugh and the creative, comfortable energy feels like a healing balm for the soul. I talk about it all time. You create this little community that I now can’t imagine living without.  “Thank you” doesn’t begin to cut it.

If you ever need a comment or praise for your blog or anything, let me know so that I can sit down and write something more  articulate about werkstatt and you.

Really- You are magic. Simply the best.

getting ready for the holiday season

since ella entered her wonderful kindergarten class at the integrated arts academy, i finally feel like a goldsmith again who gets quality time at the bench all morning 5 days a week. it frees my mind and lets me be creative and productive again.

now that i am solo at WERKSTATT this will be my first season on my own in a different setting. i am excited and nervous at the same time.

i am getting ready with new stock, especially with extended “fan” designs and new stackables including colored, rose cut diamonds. also i worked on a little serie of pins this year that i finally finished and got into stores for the busy and cold season of the year. these are available in all materials and hold scarfs or button-less jackets together in order to keep you warm.

please have a look and make a note in your calendar about the WERKSTATTs first open holiday house, friday, nov. 19th (5-8) and saturday, nov.20th (2-7).

i will be serving some hot cider and punch, gingerbread, clementines and some other small snacks. all stock pieces will be 10% off from that weekend on till the end of the month.

after that my shop will be open every sat.and sun. from 11-5 and by appointment.

802-999-3242 or info@janefrank.de

i hope i see many of you for a cozy gathering by the fireplace, browsing through beautiful and unique jewelry.

a wonderful holiday season and all the best to all of you.

thank you zach and alissa

i met zach in november 2015 to talk about making an engagement ring for him.

since he lives in boston we did a lot back and forth via email but a few months later we  came up with this very simple, elegant and beautiful design including a rose cut diamond. i melted down a bunch of his family members gold in order to make the setting.

when he picked it up he was so happy that he proposed that night and brought his “now” finance alissa and his sweet mom fren the next day. we hit it all off right away.

then alissa and zach decided to come again to make their wedding bands with me, also with gold that we melted down to create something so new and exiting for them.they came all the way from boston and we had such a great time….

they now are married and just sent this picture. thank you for sharing!

all the best, i am pretty sure  this was not the last project for us to work on.

preparing for the “strut” fashion show

hello everyone.

since i decided to leave my retail collective “alchemy” this spring, i am off to new adventures. its scary but exiting at the same time. thanks to my very creative and wonderfully open minded friend lisa lillibridge, i have the opportunity to participate in the art hop fashion show “strut” and move completely out of my comfort zone. she will be working with fabric designer/artist elizabeth bunsen and both of them are from dakota/nebraska, so they made their theme around prairie and earthiness . i am very exited to try something new and making it around having fun…..
