Riki Jewelry

romantic relics, jewelry design, instructor at retreats

Updated: 2018-03-12T04:01:00.902-07:00




Hi sweet friends! Can't believe I haven't posted one time here in 2017. How is that possible, and where does the time go?

I don't know if anyone still reads blogs?? I will post this to FB too! But I thought I would mention that as of this year, I am retiring from jewelry making, designing, and teaching.  It has been about 21 years of bliss, but am ready to bow out.

I have loved every single minute of meeting new friends, helping others and creating. I can't thank everyone personally, so I will just say thank you to each and every one of you for making jewelry making a dream come true for me.  Stephanie Lee's instruction changed my life, as did Susan Lenart Kazmer.  And instructors like Richard Salley, Robert Danzik and many others were so helpful and giving.  And foremost, Zinnia Galliher with Artful Gathering, your support and friendship has been amazing.

So what's next? Not retirement for sure.  I'm going to sell all the stuff I've collected for over 20 years, wow there's a lot.  Then I'm going to clean out the workshop, take some painting classes and just play, play, play.  No stress!  I'm now planting and gardening, enjoying travel, the new She Shed (thank you Mark Gardner for the photo above), filling the bird feeders, cooking and not thinking of jewelry every waking moment, like I have for 20 years.

I will miss all of the special friends I've made over the years.  And who knows, might run in to you at an event somewhere, for a mixed media or painting workshop, or who knows!! I hope we stay in touch.

Maddie and I send love and happiness to each and every one of you, and wishing you many years of success in whatever your endeavors are.  Take each day and moment and make the best of it, I sure plan to!!



I am so excited to offer a free workshop to one lucky winner!

So this time I decided to post a little video of my workshop. It is as cleaned up as I could get it! I'm in full production mode right now, so sorry about the mess. But I hope you enjoy the video tour. I wanted to give you a glimpse of my stations, and treasures I work with.

I'm going to try to get around and see many other studios listed on Karen's list.

Art Retreat in the Desert - Vivi Magoo


Oh my gosh, the Vivi Magoo art retreat in the desert was over the top fun!Where can I begin? Friday's class was full of lots of challenge.  The students made lockets from scratch.  This was really a wonderful exercise of cutting out metal, filing and making hinges from scratch.  There were a few head scratching moments, but they all did such a wonderful job.  I didn't get everyone's photo, a few weren't feeling too hot, and split.  But to those who were able to hang in there, you guys did a fantastic job!!! Aren't the lockets they made amazing?Then on to Saturday....More smiles as they hammered away on making cuffs with etched bullet casings and hammered bronze wire.  This project was so much fun.  Lots of hammering in that room, so some went outside in the Tucson sun to hammer away.  Great job students!!! You did an amazing job with your bracelets.Then came Sunday!And it was a smaller and slower class, which was great.They made wired heart cages for this workshop, La Cage.They took off with these, and had a ball. I love how each one turned out differently.  And everyone wired treasures inside, giving each a wonderfully romantic and unique look.Fabulous job ladies!!!This is a picture of the class in the hotel lobby.Jackie, SueAnn, me, Karen, Melanie and Wendy!So wonderful to meet all of you, it was a ball.Sweet Joanna Pierotti dropped by to say hi for our lunch break. Sorry Jessica, caught you with chewing on some steak! You two are darling.What a thrill to meet fellow instructor Pamela Huntington!!She dropped by as well, she and Lorri Scott were teaching at a different show. But they came by to see all of us, and I got to see who that darling face is behind the amazing Artful Gathering workshops.The Tucson trip wouldn't be complete without a last night dinner out!So Barb Solem joined us, and we had too much fun. Maybe one too many margaritas, but what the heck!  They were well deserved for a well done job. Many thanks to you Barb, and Erin, for a fabulous art retreat, it was one of the best ever. Can't wait until next year.This is Karen on the far left, Deryn's sister in law, and our sweet Rita with Barb.And of course, Deryn Mentock, her friend and now mine, Ronnie, and my wonderful roomie and friend Diane Cook.  Look at those smiles!! I can't wait until next year!! We did some shopping, ok too much, made new friends, and got to laugh and play with old ones.  It was too much fun.I hope you can join us next year. Save the dates!! It will be around the same time, Feb 9-11, 2014. Come take some workshops, make some new friends, and shop the shows, it is such a wonderful and fun experience.lots of love,Riki[...]

Stephanie Lee Homesteader's contest


Stephanie LeeEvery now and then you get to meet an angel.  I did five years ago.  Stephanie offered a three day workshop, a compressive workshop, at a  home in Los Angeles.  Not only did I get to learn a few basics about soldering with a torch (which I was new at), and so much more, but I got to spend three days getting to know her as a person, a teacher and loves to have fun.  I had worn out her wonderful book, making her projects front to back, self-teaching. So it was a truly a dream come true to get to take a three day course from the master in person.  I formed some wonderful friendships in that workshop.  I met Diane Cook, who came all the way from Texas, and Diana Frey, now both incredible instructors and extremely talented.I have never told Steph what an amazing life changer she was for me.  Oh come to think of it, I've told her so many times she must be sick of hearing it!  When she asked if I would like to give a way a couple of her revamped Homesteader's Metalsmithing Online Classes, I was honored.  I would love for you to have the nearest experience you can to what we enjoyed back in 2009.  You don't get to hang out with her, and enjoy her warm and helping personality, and have a ton of laughs, but you do get to learn a ton of amazing methods, techniques and tricks of the trade. And this is a FOUR week course! She packs a ton of information in to EVERY thing she teaches.  I have taken this workshop, and it is awesome.  You will learn so many wonderful things. a sample of her amazing workHere is a list of what you will learn:~four weeks of indepth instruction~weekly high quality (HD) video tutorials (5+ each week)~troubleshooting help and Q&A sessions~indepth exploration in understanding your materials to be able to manipulate them how you want~tools coaching and selection guidance~fabrication of wire forms, foundations, and flourishes~bezel creation from various materials and in many forms~solder manipulation and texturing~inventive, original and non-tedious chain-making~solder casting~altering and modifying natural elements~resin exploration and alternatives~bead crochet~fabric + metal combining in various, unique ways~image creation in metal and fabric~much much much more!Check out Stephanie's website for more info on the list of techniques she is sharing.  It is a long list.HOMESTEADER'SMETALSMITHINGThe workshop starts this coming Monday, January 20, so the contest runs until January 19.  I will draw a name from the comments listed her on that day.Go check it out and jump on it!!SO if you are interested in winning one of these workshops, please leave a comment, and your email so I can do a random drawing!!

Workshop in LA March 22, 2014


THIS IS FUN NEWS!Maybe you can put this workshop on your Christmas list??Queen's Lace Necklace WorkshopFor my friends in the Los Angeles and surrounding areas, I am finally teaching a workshop in your area!  I can't tell you how thrilled I am about that.Announcing Queen's Lace, a fun new workshop, never taught, will incorporate a new mixed media photo process, called Auratones, along with making a beautiful necklace.Recently, a lady contacted me about collaborating with her about doing a workshop.  Her name is Barbara Buckles.  She had invented a process of using a photograph, and making it look something like what Edward Curtis would make, the talented photographer from the 1800's who used to photograph the plains Indians. And she thought my vintage jewelry style, with the French flair, would be just the ticket for a workshop to teach her process, then we make a pendant focusing on the photo.So....voila!Here is what I came up with.  I decided to try some new techniques, that would allow the student to play with the metal a little more, not just adorning it with some delicate stampings, but give it a touch of "lace" look.  These are so much fun to make, I love them!  And then you will set the bezel with one of Barbara's altered photos, giving the pendant a rich and antique look.  Just lovely.Barbara and I have met a couple of times now, as fate has it.  She is a doll, and it will be so much fun to teach with her.So I hope you will come play with us at the workshop. Here are all the details. Oh, and Barbara found a fabulous loft gallery in LaBrea to hold the workshop.  I'm stoked!  I'm feeling so lucky that Barbara found me, we were able to put this workshop together, and offer this to you. Go HERE for more details and all the info.(Gift certificates available too!)Details on supplies and materials on the link. Beginners are most welcome.Save the date, and book soon! We are pretty limited on space, and it is booking alreadyPlease email me if you have questions.March 22, 2014The Loft at Liz's435 So. LaBrea Avenue, Los Angeles, CAI really hope to see you there!  Love and hugs this holiday season.Riki[...]
