AWARDS:
2014 Gayle's foldformed bracelet , Tiffany Forest,  was awarded Juror's Choice in the Lewton-Brain foldform competition for 2014. 

2013  Gayle was awarded Honorable mention in the Lewton-Brain foldform competition, for "Origami Bracelet"  a  foldformed and reticulated, hinged bracelet with a box clasp. This piece has incredible depth and ranges of texture created by the two techniques mentioned. It is an honor to  be mentioned in this international competition.

2013: Gayle was juried into the YES STORE in Santa Barbara, and will be showing her work their during the holiday season. The Yes Store is a seasonal  co-operative  that opens only for two months of the year, November and December.  It would be considered a pop up store today,  and has been in existence for 45 years. It is a pleasure to be involved with this organization that has keep the hand crafted work of local artists available in Santa Barbara for such a long time.   


2014 Ganoskin's online International Exhibition,' CHANGING HUES' will be showing six of Gayle's hand dyed aluminum pendants that are framed in sterling silver and cold connected with brass. Some of them have  tube set stones or bezel set pearls to add depth and design interest to the final piece of jewelry.  The process of hand dyeing aluminum is very interesting and produces exciting metal pieces  that are much like  watercolor paintings. Each piece is one of a kind and complements the sterling silver settings with fantastic color contrast.  I am very pleased to be accepted into this online gallery exhibition.
