Announcing a new group show at White Lotus Gallery in Eugene, Oregon, in which I am one of fourteen featured artists. The show starts on June 18 and runs through July 31, 2021. The gallery is located at 767 Willamette Street in downtown Eugene and is open for business Tuesday through Saturday, 10 AM to 4 PM. Contact them by phone: 541-345-3276 or email.
My new collection of jewelry originals offered in conjunction with this show is highlighted in my latest catalog, Summer 2021: clsjewelry ~ Christine L. Sundt Fine Jewelry Designs, viewable in its entirety at Blurb.com. If you would like to have a free PDF version of this catalog, please contact me.
After a long year of lockdowns, isolation, altered realities, personal disappointments, and uncertainties, summer of 2021 promises a glimmer of fresh starts, bright colors, new perspectives, and hope for a secure and enduring post-pandemic future. I trust this announcement finds you and yours safe and healthy and enjoying summer.
Finally, I offer this thought: Art soothes the spirit and nourishes the soul. If there was ever a time when we have needed soothing and nourishing, this is it.
The year 2020 has been full of challenges and surprises for all of us. So too for clsjewelry, which now has a presence at Etsy.com within the SundtStudios storefront. This site features new clsjewelry creations and the ever-popular Re-Wear Shawl and Scarf Pins, made primarily with recycled aluminum, now available for online sales.
I invite you to visit this shop and explore. You will find a variety of colorful, playful, exquisite, and elegant items. Think about your new screen-time events and opportunities to present yourself in front of others. Make a statement – say something – with one of my unique designs: earrings, neckpieces, pendants. Be bold! Don’t miss your change for a new adventure.
Please join us on Saturday, December 7, 2019, for a special Open House at White Lotus Gallery in Eugene, Oregon. My latest work, illustrated in a new book published by Blurb, Inc., is being presented along with jewelry by Suzanne Linquist and silk scarves by Mihara Shibori. Open House hours are 11 AM to 3 PM.
Join us if you can for tomorrow’s Open House in Eugene. This event highlights new work by me and two other gallery artists, Suzanne Linquist and Mihara Shibori. We will be meeting and greeting between 11 AM and 3 PM and speaking about our work, too. Our local newspaper, the Register Guard, included a feature about this event in yesterday’s Arts section.
I have published a new book through Blurb that documents all of my new work at White Lotus and at Cha-ya, my latest venue, located in Monterey, California. The book is available for free download as an e-book. Enjoy the book!
Max Nixon inspired me to become a metalsmith and a jewelry artist. That was back in 1992 when he was artist-in-residence at the University of Oregon’s Craft Center. Today, eighteen years after his death, we are finally paying homage to him as a teacher, colleague, and friend, in the exhibit “Max Nixon Legacy Metalwork” at White Lotus Gallery, 767 Willamette Street, in Eugene, Oregon. The show opens tomorrow, Saturday, October 27, 2018.
At the time of his death, Max’s “legacy metalwork” — pieces he held on to representing many years of creativity in a variety of materials and techniques, and those he made for his beloved wife Hattie Mae — are on display and being offered for purchase. The exhibit runs until November 27, 2018. See the illustrated catalog at Blurb.com. Print copies are available at the gallery.
Thank you, Max Nixon, for your inspiration, power of persuasion, and boundless patience!

Join us on Saturday, December 2, 2017, at White Lotus Gallery in Eugene for the Winter 2017 Open House. My latest jewelry creations and inspirations will be there as we gather for some holiday cheer.
Another event, Small Business Saturday, will be happening at Cozy, Eugene’s newest yarn emporium across from the 5th Street Public Market, on Saturday, November 25. My Re~Wear pins will be featured. These are fiber fasteners or embellishments made from old knitting needles and various beads, yarns, fabrics, and bling. They are perfect for securing a shawl or scarf or to add some pizzazz to a lapel or hat. They are ideal stocking stuffers for all crafters and fiber artists.
