June 2018 - Anne Blakemore & Liz Montgomery

Anne Blakemore

Handcrafted jewelry, designed to diffuse essential oils. Unique, in that the whole piece is a personal diffuser. Everything from the leather used to string the components to the components themselves. Hand drilled matte gems stones, sea urchin spines, rudraksha seeds, sea shells, artisan clays/leather backed pendants, and so much more. All holding and diffusing oil at varying rates. I do a great amount of research on porosity to find the most unique and beautiful element to adorn each piece. I truly consider each piece of jewelry investment in one's emotional and physical wellbeing.

About a year ago, in an effort to address many health issues, we switch to chemical free and organic products. Eureka! I discovered essential oils. They change our whole world. In search of a way to express, share and benefit from my oils, exponentially. I bought several different necklaces. I was so disappointed. The barley held oil for even a couple of hours. I couldn't adjust the length for the aroma. They were all so generic. Silver chain with a pendant including some cheap felt or even worse, wax covered lava stone. So….I decided to make my own, uniquely expressing me!

I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin,


spent most of my adult life in Barrington,

IL and finally settled down in Southeast,

Florida. I have been retired for many

years now and live on a small island in

the Florida Keys. I was surrounded by so

much natural beauty that I turned to


photography in order to capture some of

it. A substantial part of my family is located

in the Spokane area and as such I vacation

here for four months of the year. I became

attracted to some of the unique photo-

graphic opportunities found only in the

Inland Northwest.

My work has been published in several

newspapers. My photograph was on book

cover. I have held several solo exhibits at the

Marathon, FL Theater. An image of mine

has been on the 2015-2016 brochure for the

Theater. The Shady Palm Art Gallery in

Marathon, Fl is where I have my work.


My Mission: To reveal God's beauty through

my lens for all to enjoy.

I am currently working

in the photo canvas medium. Landscapes

flowers and landmarks dominate my canvases

presently. I also have a sub-specialty in photo

note cards.
