Summer is going by way too fast! Making me want to scream, STOP!!!!!! In two weeks is ArtStreet in Downtown Green Bay Wisconsin. This is a very fun art show/ festival. It is August 26, 27, 28th. I am booth number 177 I believe. I do not have a map of the grounds yet, but they should post that soon. Go to Mosaicarts.org. http://mosaicartsinc.org
To follow are some things I have made this summer. Some are for sale and some are sold or custom orders. It’s been an exciting summer for custom orders. There are few pieces I have made that just amazing me. They had so much meaning to them. It is a wonderful thing to bring that persons memory to life in a piece they can wear every day.
This gorgeous stone above is a Chrysocolla in pretty much it’s natural state. I could not pass up the color ~ WOW! Link: https://www.etsy.com/listing/458327436/chrysocolla-sterling-silver-necklace?ref=shop_home_active_1
Necklace and rings that are at J Jeffery Taylor in Fish Creek Wisconsin. If you would like one made for you I can have you pick out your own stone. Price estimate $200-$250
Custom Order Twig Vine Aquamarine and Diamond Ring ~ Reverse side of this ring has 4 diamonds wrapping around the stone. This lady was floored. I thanked her up and down for the opportunity to make such a special piece for her. It was such a pleasure and meant to be. In memory of her mother and all of her mother’s favorite things incorporated into the design.
This has never happened? How does the above happen? I don’t have any idea: 25,000 + views on one of my videos? I’m dumbfounded. The company was as well. They said thanks and I said you’re welcome. Love your tools: Pepe Tools….. especially your jump ringer.
Massive Labradorite Necklace at J Jefferey Taylor in Fish Creek Wisconsin
Again if you would like one of these necklace just contact me. You can pick out your own stone. Cost estimate is $400-$900…just depends on the stone. Just this one stone was $175 but I have stones that are $50 as well.
One of my favorite customers had this ring made from a pile of jewelry she was not wearing. How fun!!!!!! This is the ultimate in recycling. Thanks R and TGIF!
I love this piece. Variscite and Tourmaline… This stone material is the 1940’s. I have never seen it look like this. Too good to be true! For Sale: Link: https://www.etsy.com/listing/451029954/sterling-silver-variscite-tourmaline?ref=shop_home_active_5
This pendant is about 5 inches long… a stunner and not for the shy. Would look great on a guy if you have the guts to pull it off. Prudent Man Plume Agate and Labradorite Link: https://www.etsy.com/listing/386636096/one-of-a-kind-sterling-silver-necklace?ref=shop_home_active_14
I have sold all of these bracelets and I am making more today. They all sold in Madison on Saturday. When people see them they fall in love with them ~ Sturdy and rugged and great movement. Custom made in your size. Link: https://www.etsy.com/listing/287939961/leather-bracelet-sterling-silver?ref=shop_home_active_7
This is myself, Katie and Savannah in Madison. I probably will not continue to do Madison. It’s a big show, expensive & a ton of extra work. I do several shows that cost me less than $100 total and I have them available to me right by my home. This show I am out $500-$800 before I ever arrive and it’s 50% more work than usual. I am so swamped with work that I just don’t need the extra work load. I will pick up a show that is in a rural tourist area that I enjoy instead of cooking on the pavement in a big urban environment. I so love the shows I do in parks, in pretty little places that this big city show is not for me. I have done it two years in a row to give myself a chance at really getting a taste for it and it’s just not my style. So, love ya Madison maybe I will try your inside Holiday Christmas show instead of being among the buildings. Not in anyway is the show not a good show… so try it if you want to… the downtown thing is not for me.
