Sugarloaf Shows!

by tomburnsjewelry on 17 September 2014

It’s been a fine summer, but here come my favorite seasons. Not kidding! There’s something refreshing in the Fall air. I always wind up making some of the best jewelry of the year when the weather turns a little cooler, and it’s happening again. I’ve got about 50 new rings underway, and a bunch of really exciting necklaces and pendant designs in my sketchbook and on my workbench and I know just the place to show them to you: The Gaithersburg, MD Sugarloaf Craft Fairs! The first one is in October, the 17th, 18th, and 19th, and the second one is the weekend right before Thanksgiving. Please come out and enjoy the sparkling weather, and see what I’ve made this Fall.

People often ask why I don’t sell online, and I’ll tell you: it’s because each piece of jewelry is made with care, by hand, and at shows I get to meet you, you get to meet me, and I get to see where that piece is going to be “living”. It completes the picture that starts with a sketch on paper, continues with raw elements, stone and silver, being hammered and joined by fire, and ends with us meeting and you walking away with a new piece and a smile on your face that literally lights up my life. With your smile, you give me the reason I make these things. I didn’t get that when I sold wholesale to stores, I didn’t get that when I sold by mail.

That’s why I’ll keep selling my jewelry only hand to hand.
I’m already excited about these Fall shows! I hope I’ll see you there!
btw, the sidebar to the right listing my shows is stuck on 2012, but if you click on the Sugarloaf shows it’ll link you to the 2014 show sites!
