No, really? How is Thanksgiving next week? I am so unprepared.
I have my last show on Saturday at North Penn High School. It's a wonderful show full of high quality hand picked artisans. If you are local, I hope you will stop by. I have been working on my indoor display set up, and I am quite happy with it!
It feels like a little shop you can walk into.
I finally got some "real" pipe and drape instead of an old taped and tied up tent frame! I am really liking it. Very easy to set up.
I will have my bags and my prints available. I also changed a few things up. I have these smaller pieces that I offer, and they usually hang on a T-bar display. They so often get overlooked though. I think my other pieces are so big that little things just can't compete. though I still like to make them, and I know there are still people who would like something daintier. So I packaged them in individual boxes, ready for gifts. I love it and I think they will finally get some attention now. You can really see the detail in each one.
I really like how this style I am holding turned out. I bought these antique brass belts years ago- because I LOVED them. And there they have sat. I have tried a few times to work them into pieces and they just don't turn out. Soooooo, finally, it came to me, and I made a few of these pendants. So perfect to show off a great fossil like this fossil coral slab!
I also have some cool news I have been sitting on for a few months.
The winter issue of Belle Amoire Jewelry features me for their Designer Collection. I was so honored to be asked to do it. Rice Freeman-Zachery did the interview and wrote an article that made me tear up. She really listened and captured me and my creative process. It was a pretty amazing experience. So if you get to Barnes and Nobles, or a local craft store, check it out. They did 12 pages of my work! I also have a 4 page article in that issue.
(this is the issue- not my piece on the cover though)
Now I am going to try to stop staring at my pieces in print and finish getting ready for my show and the upcoming holidays!!!!
I do plan on having a bead sale early next week, before thanksgiving (monday or tuesday). It will be on my Facebook page for sales.
I will also be offering some gifty jewelry for sale, and some will be made to order (this is new for me- but I think it will be fun to customize some designs for you guys). Others will be sale items. I will also have prints and bags available for the holidays. So if you know someone who would love a block print or bag, check out my sale, or contact me. I may be able to do ONE custom batch for the Holidays are over!!!!
