After 2 months of focused preparation, the weekend is here. I have hundreds of pendants.
They are almost all priced.
The process of planning is a visual one. I will have an 8′ table in Artisan’s Alley – #461 is you were wondering. I wanted to maximize my space and create a pleasing display. A display that showcases my “Mythic Nature” series of original designs. But I have SO MUCH inventory – I need to use every inch.
So I do a mock set up in the basement studio:
There are trays for pendants, necklace displays to show finished pieces… I really like the antique cigar boxes – I can pin up samples in the lid and set out more stock in the bottom.
I have new work, featuring new pendants… Half the fun is planning waht to wear, and display… I made a new batch of necklaces featuring my pendants and time in the studio was a joy after marathon glazing sessions – 6+ hours a day, 5 days a week.
Now I just have to pack up:
Hope to see you in Philly!

Wow-look at all of those amazing treasures-you have really been busy! So hard for me to miss out on all of the wonderful artisan beads-hope you’ll be there next year! Have a great weekend!
Good luck – hope you sell bunches – your work is awesome. Wish I was going to BeadFest – maybe next year. I love those little Matroshka dolls that Lesley posted a picture of. If you are coming to ArtBliss and have any of those left please bring them. I would love to make my granddaughter something with one of them. Have fun.
