Signature Artwork

In art, signature artwork refers to works by popular and well-established artists that are easily recognized as theirs because of unique characteristics in style, medium, or subject matter.[1][2] A parallel to the recognition of a person's signature on a work is drawn indicating that the work itself may serve the same purpose to declare the creator because of unique characteristics. The existence of a body of works that demonstrate the characteristics identified as a signature artwork is necessary for the application of the term, and art critics focus upon the development of such "styles" as important for determining the significance of an artist's work. -- Wikipedia

I'm so thrilled to show the most involved piece of jewelry I've ever made. Those who know my jewelry will instantly recognize it. It's currently headlining my new collection available at the Gallery Shop at the Southwest School of Art in San Antonio.

It was a huge labor of love, and I am ready to make another as soon as I can clear out a few other pressing commitments. So many little time.


  1. Congrats Vickie, it's wonderful! It makes me want to make one too!

  2. Go do it, Elaine! It feels great!

  3. All I have to say is - Beautiful!

  4. Stunning!!! That is a work of art.

    1. Thank you, Jane! That's the best compliment!

    Ooooh, lovely!

    Does this make it safe to assume that those earlier "blister" problems somehow resolved themselves before these pieces were fired?!

  6. There are still a very few slight blisters on the back of a couple of the pieces. I still don't understand the origins and the seemingly unpredictable nature of which pieces have the issue. I will continue to experiment.
