Last weekend we went to the Houston area for a family wedding. Saturday, the weather was fine and the wedding went off without a hitch! Congratulations to Anthony and Nicole Clarkson!

The day before the wedding we went into the big city ( Cheyenne is dinky in comparison) to visit the Houston Museum of Contemporary Craft and get some authentic Texas BBQ. First art then food!

HMCC is small but the shows were first rate. Two of the gallery spaces featured interesting ceramic shows and the third space had a book and jewelry show. In the center of the Museum is the Asher Gift Gallery. The Asher has been carrying Rawhide Studio jewelry for over a year now. The staff was very friendly and spoke well of our jewelry and its popularity. Thanks HMCC for supporting artisans around the country.

Absaroka Western Designs and Tannery

When we say Rawhide Studio is Wyoming made we really mean it! Since the beginning we have tried to find a local source for our rawhide. When we searched the internet and came across Absaroka Western Designs in Dubois WY, we knew we had to make the 5 hour trek to see what the place had to offer. When we arrived at the shop we met the owner Joe Brandl and explained that we made jewelry out of rawhide and were looking for a Wyoming source. He took us through his workshop and then showed us some of his antelope and elk hides. We sorted through them, purchased a few and headed back to our campsite excited about our find! Of course the trip had to include some fishing for Dave and we made a connection with a gallery in Dubois called Pony Tracks.  All and all a great trip to a beautiful part of Wyoming!

Global Arts

Global Arts in Lander WY is the latest gallery to carry Rawhide Studio jewelry.  Lander is located near the Wind River Reservation and Sinks Canyon State Park. It is a beautiful part of Wyoming with lots of opportunities for hiking, fishing and visiting art places like Global Arts and the Lander Art Center. Lander is also home to the National Outdoor Leadership School otherwise known as  NOLS .

Dave and I always enjoy getting up to Lander. We will be heading back up there this Friday for the opening of the West By New West show. We are both in the show along with five other artists from Cheyenne and a guest artist from Lander. More about that show in my next post.

She’s worked hard all her life so her hubby decided to splurge and buy her a pair of Prairie Pine earrings. As soon as the Prairie Pine necklace comes online he’s going to buy that for her too! Then she can stop wearing that boring cameo brooch!
