I think it’s amazing for anyone to consider cutting off […]
At the Christmas One of a Kind Show this year I met Sue McNenly, who creates impossibly charming miniature vignettes in fine silver and gold. I loved her whimsical designs and we had a great conversation about her work, which made me like it (and her) even more. Sue had some beautiful flower pieces, with […]
