New Earrings at Fusion Art Glass

Yesterday I sent a shipment of a bunch of my post earrings and my leaf earrings to Fusion Art Glass in Seaside, Florida. One of my friends, whose mother winters in Seaside gave me store's business card a few years ago. I contacted them, they saw me at the Buyer's Market, and they have been carrying my jewelry ever since.

New Shipment of Jewelry to Studio 12 in Denver, Colorado

I just sent a shipment of jewelry to Sean Brown, artist and owner of Studio 12 Gallery in Denver, Colorado. I met Sean and his wife, Stacey, last year at the Buyers Market of American Craft. Sean makes amazing ceramic jewelry. He opened Studio 12 Gallery last year and has been carrying my jewelry since then. I enjoyed chatting with Sean at the Buyers Market and I wanted to share his amazing work with you.

Sean's Dachshund Pin, shown here, is available at his Etsy Store.

My Jewelry - Now at What Is That in Ypsilanti

On Saturday, I delivered a selection of jewelry to What Is That...a gallery on Michigan Ave. in Ypsilanti. Just what the City needs! They have an amazing collection of local work. For more information, please read this article.
This is a photo of what I delivered...

Family Necklace

One of my customers, who found me on Etsy last summer has become quite a collector of my jewelry! She asked me to design a "mother's necklace"...a pendant with four pieces - each representing a member of her family. The colors would be of each of their birth months. We discussed several options while finally deciding that my new leaf necklace would be an excellent starting point. The leaf necklace, which is inpspired by nature, but is clean and contemporary, normally has three leaves. It has a different look with four leaves. It's longer and the leaves have a cascading effect, which my customer and I were both very pleased with. It was great fun making this special necklace for this special person. I am so pleased and flattered that she chose me to make this necklace.

Getting Back...

It's been awhile since I've written an update! I've been crazy busy since late January...first with getting ready for Buyers Market of American Craft in Philadelphia along with Valentine's Day orders.

Since returning from the Buyer's Market (I was gone from February 9 until February 17), I have been organized to send out wholesale orders and I ended up having quite a few orders (including several custom orders) on Etsy.

I am also having my studio expanded/renovated...which is being done slowly and in stages so that my work is not interrupted. I am already benefiting from the more efficient work space.

Watch for photos of my studio!
