Duck Off to the Museum

Duck Off to the Museum

First of all a big thank you to each and every one of you! Did you know you are always assisting me even when you might think that’s not possible? Well, do I have a story for you. My jewelry and scarves are about to be shipped to the Mingei International Museum in San Diego. It’s all because of...

It’s November?!!

It’s November?!!

The Crown Update (No, it's not an update on your favortie Netflix show) Last time I shared my difficulty with soldering for a crown I was working on. I succeeded in soldering the tube onto the copper piece in the second round. But, I’ve noticed that when doing an unusual soldering job, it may take...

Rising to the Challenge

Rising to the Challenge

Rising to the Challenge  Currently, I find myself in the studio soldering a huge piece. This is somewhat unusual; even the setup is out of the ordinary. But, hey, I had the idea of creating a crown, “The Crown of Enlightenment” for the upcoming Ojai Studio Artists exhibit “Finding Light” at the...

I’m in Shout Out LA!

I’m in Shout Out LA!

So here it is, from Shout Out LA, an online magazine: Meet Elaine Unzicker: An Empowerment Couturiere for Women One of the...

The Dance of Art
