Starting the year with a BANG!

Posted in Uncategorized on March 22, 2012 by tinabarkdesigns

It’s been a busy year so far, starting off with my trip to Arizona for the incredible Tucson Gem Show. It’s always great to be back in the desert, especially for such an exciting and inspiring event! I am having so much fun designing and creating new pieces incorporating my new treasures!

I am loving the combination of the metal work with my new stones- Tiger’s Eye in three different colors!

BARK

BARK cufflinks, for MEN.
DSCN0476DSCN0455DSCN0468DSCN0460“My BARK cufflinks are the most versatile pieces in my collection. The simplicity of the design — no moving parts, gem stones, or sharp angles — allows me to pair them with shirts and suits of all colors and patterns. The elemental rawness of the materials (mine are hand-brushed sterling silver and brass), makes them a more masculine alternative to the dandified concepts of similarly priced creations of old world favorites like Harold Cox or Deakin & Francis. BARK cufflinks look and feel like the work of an American blacksmith, not a European fashion house. Highly recommended.”

All kinds of fun projects and events have been keeping me busy lately! In October I was honored to be the Feature Artist at the Phoenix Gallery in Washington D.C. for Georgetown Gallery Gaze. It was a great opportunity to display my whole collection, including new designs, and to meet and shmooze with the fashion savvy art buyers of D.C.

I also recently made another television appearance in Phoenix, AZ on ABC channel 15’s program “Sonoran Living”, to talk about Tina Bark Designs and give some tips on wearing bold statement pieces!

Coming up this week the Gallery Yes.Oui.Si will open its doors in Boston, and I am excited to be selling my jewelry there now, as well!
I will soon post some pictures of me at my workbench- I’m still hard at work coming up with new designs and beautiful pieces of wearable art!

A Look at Some of the New Pieces!

BANGLES!
These copper and sterling silver bangles make me feel like Wonder Woman when I wear them!

I started my Gourd Series a few months ago and have been selling them as quickly as I can make them! Each one is unique , and there’s a beautiful earth-bound quality that is captured in the bold three-dimensional shape.

The butterflies keep getting bigger and better! This ring is a commissioned piece, where I was able to include the initials of the buyer in the wing design (GM- can you see it?). I love placing the butterfly at an angle, as if it has just landed on your finger!

sterling silver, turquoise, copper wire

I am so excited about my GIANT flowers! The poppy is one of my favorite flowers, and the inspiration for this piece.
