I’ll See You at Sunapee!

by tomburnsjewelry on 29 May 2014

Well, that certainly was a fun weekend in New Paltz. The Woodstock New Paltz Craft Fair, that is. A fine weekend with lots of people enjoying themselves and quite a few people taking home a new piece of jewelry from my booth! Thank You if you were one of them, and if not, well there’s the biggest and probably the best show of the year coming up in August: The New Hampshire League of Craftsmen’s Fair, at the Lake Sunapee Resort, will be happening the first two weekends in August and the week between, August 2 - 10, and I’m excited already. I’ve been having a burst of creativity lately, with a lot of new ideas filling my sketchbooks and I’ve got two free months to make a lot of them turn into silver and gemstone reality. I saw an exhibition of ancient Turkoman jewelry at the Metropolitan Museum in New York last Fall that got my “juices” going - there was something about their design sense that resonated with what I’m already doing, yet it jogged my pencil in new directions that I can’t wait to explore this summer. Please make plans to come to Sunapee in early August to see the show. It’s always an experience, always has the best craftwork you’ll see anywhere, always full of craft artists excited about what they do, and it’ll have all my new work on display to see and touch. Not to mention a swim in the pristine lake in the afternoon! I’ll see you at Sunapee!          p.s.   My web guy has been unable to change the dates on the Upcoming Shows sidebar to the right, but if you click on a show it will link you to THIS year’s show. I won’t be in the Manchester, VT show or the Somerset NJ show.  All the others are correct, and they’ll link to this year’s show. See you soon!
