This past Friday I held my (1st annual?) jewelry open house.
I decided to try an "island" formation to walk around. I'm not sure if I'm sold on that idea now... It felt like I had much less than when I'm set up how I am at art fairs...But it worked. I may tweak that in the future though.
A few different views...
All of my rooms got the switcharoo. The dining table moved to the emptied playroom. Photo taken before all of the wine came out ;)
Can you see a little hand resting on the corner of the table just waiting to snatch another cookie?
I decided to try something a little different and "group" like things together.
I usually just use the earrings stands as filler in gap areas but was told at the last show people didn't notice them as much. I grouped these and just as I suspected: they look like little gravestones all lined up-LOL.
(at least to me they do)
A few necklaces....
I worked alot this fall with heat treated copper and loved the results. I made quite a few copper pieces and they flew out of here. This was all I had left at the end of the evening. With silver prices at a crazy high right now I think working more with mixed metals is in my immediate future.
I want to thank each of you who came that night. You made the evening a success and made me happy to see so many friendly faces in our home :)
Thank you *Thank you *Thank you!
