Artist Feature: Carol Novotne

One of the most beloved artists at Harvest Gold is Carol Novotne. Based in Helena, Montana, Novotne held her first show at the age of 16. She is a member of the International Guild of Impressionism.

"Portland Head Light" by Carol Novotne

Novotne gained a degree in Fine Arts and later studied ceramics, jewelry making and gold casting, and painting before receiving a Master's degree in anthropology. In 1983, she became the director of the Helena Art Center, a school of fine arts.

"Autumn Afternoon" by Carol Novotne

Novotne has said, "I love in a world of light and texture. I live in a world of movement, of prisms of color, and of spheres of light and shadow. I look to paint a single short moment in time and place."

"First Snow at Tuckerman's Ravine" by Carol Novotne

We are so lucky to have the work of this talented artist here in our Gallery. As always, pictures don't do the paintings justice and we hope you stop in to see Carol Novotne's work in person!

"Lillies and a Blue Sky" by Carol Novotne

 

 

 

Valentine's Day!

It's hard to believe but January is almost over, which means Valentine's Day is just around the corner! We've got you covered here at Harvest Gold. Jewelry is a classic gift, but we also have a line of heart-shaped jewelry that makes for the perfect Valentine's Day present.

The My Valentine sterling silver pendant says it all with a simple, hand cut out heart.

The My Valentine can be made in earrings and a bracelet in order to create a complete set.

If she prefers a ring, we also have the Queen of Hearts sterling silver ring. All rings come with a free sizing.

The Perfectly Puddled Hearts 14K Gold Drop Earrings are a beautiful set that have a wonderful shine in the light.

 

If a heart design isn't what you're looking for, don't forget all of our other jewelry. Bill and Lynda specialize in making custom pieces, if you're looking to gift a truly one-of-a kind-piece. To see more Harvest Gold jewelry, stop by or visit the website.

 

 

Scenes of Winter

Winter is finally here and we hope that you're enjoying the snow by getting outdoors! There's lots to see and do, from alpine and cross country skiing, to snow shoeing, skating, and hiking. Wildlife is still around despite the cold, so keep your eyes peeled!  We have several works of art in the gallery that depict both humans and wildlife getting out in the snow, though us humans have the benefit of being able to go indoors when it gets too cold!

"One Last Run" by Diane Scott

"Big Moose in the Snow" by Carol Novotne

"Shepard's Farm at Dusk" by Gwen Nagel

 

"Girl in a Red Dress" by Thomas Merriam

We hope everyone is making the most of the winter season! Stop in to see our entire collection of wintry scenes!

Maine Gemstones at Harvest Gold Part 2

Another Maine gemstone available at Harvest Gold is amethyst. Amethyst has been mined right here in Oxford County! We have a selection of earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and rings all featuring beautiful Maine amethyst.

The purple comes in varying shades, from a dark, deep purple like the amethyst in the King Iris necklace.

The Purple Ray earrings feature light, pale amethyst, demonstrating some of the variation that can be found.

The Imperial ring is set with a stunning square brilliant cut amethyst and also features four diamonds.

Owning a piece of our local amethyst is like having your own piece of Maine. We hope you stop in the gallery to see some of our beautiful amethyst jewelry! 

 

Maine Gemstones at Harvest Gold Part 1

Here at Harvest Gold we take pride in our beautiful local Maine gemstones. Maine is famous for tourmaline, as well as amethyst.

Tourmaline comes in a rainbow of colors, from black to yellow, to the more well known pinks and greens. The variation in tourmaline colors can be seen in the hand-strung Lady Slipper Necklace.

We have a variety of colors on display at Harvest Gold, and we are always happy to help you find the exact color you would like for a custom piece. We have several pieces of the stunning watermelon tourmaline, such as the Fresh Slice pendant, that features both pink and green.

Blue hues can be seen in the Kezar Lake white gold ring.

 

The Daisy ring is an example of yellow tourmaline.

Happy First Day of Winter!

There may not be much snow on the ground, but winter is here! We thought this might be a nice opportunity to showcase some of the winter-themed works that we have in the gallery.

"Peaceful Snowfall" by Varvara Harmon

"Race in the Field" by Thomas Merriam

"First Snow at Tuckerman's Ravine" by Carol Novotne 

"Snow Walk on Kezar Lake" by Rebecca Klementovich

"Snowshoe Hare" by Thomas Merriam

We hope these paintings help get you into the winter spirit! Think snow!

New Piece by Michael Hopko

We have a new arrival at Harvest Gold! Today we received a stunning glass sculpture of a large mouth bass, handblown by Michael Hopko.

Hopko, based in Northern California, has been working with glass since 1990. As an avid outdoorsman, he has a strong connection to nature. Inspired by the level of freedom that glassblowing gives him, Hopko creates "unique natural beauties", whether a Saltwater Mahi Mahi or Blue Fin Tuna, or sea turtles and octopus. 

In addition to the new small mouth bass, we also have a rainbow trout blown by Hopko. Both possess an array of color that is wonderfully displayed under light.

To learn more about Michael Hopko, and to see more of his exquisite work, stop in and watch for updates. We hope you come to see the fish and all of the other beautiful works on display in the gallery.

Saying Goodbye...to paintings!

Several paintings have sold recently. While we're always happy when paintings leave the gallery for their forever homes, we do miss seeing them every day. We're taking the chance to say a final goodbye!

"Dancing Forest" by Sandra Bell

"Runt of the Litter" by Diane Scott

"Dancing Bears" by Thomas Merriam

"Tall Greens" by Jean Swan Gordon

Although we'll miss these works, there are still paintings in the gallery by all of the above artists. To see more work by Sandra Bell, Diane Scott, Thomas Merriam, and Jean Swan Gordon, visit our website or stop by the gallery. We hope the new owners enjoy their paintings!

 

Custom Jewelry

Bill and Lynda are always busy making custom jewelry. Customers often come in with jewelry they no longer wear and, with the help of Bill and Lynda, they are able reimagine it into a new piece. People frequently use inherited items, such as wedding bands, to create their own piece that still has the same sentimental value as before, but in a style more suited to the customer's personal taste. As always, Bill and Lynda are happy to help you design your own unique jewelry, whether it is a ring, necklace, pendant, earrings, or a bracelet.

This reimagined piece includes a diamond from the owner's grandmother.

Lynda worked with the customer to create the design of this one of a kind, asymmetrical ring.

This camel pendant was commissioned by a customer as a gift for his wife. She was the editor of a book series called "Sun God's Heir", in which the main character is a camel.

This gold overlap bracelet was designed as a gift for a recent medical school graduate; it contains gems from both her maternal and paternal grandmothers.

As you can see, Bill and Lynda are able to create a variety of designs depending on what the customer is looking for. Their goal is always to provide customers with a piece of jewelry that will bring smiles to faces and be worn for many years to come. Come on in to see more of their custom work!
