Hi there, you wonderful person checking my site! If you met me at the October show in Gaithersburg, well Hi! If you’re one of the people who went home with a new piece of my jewelry, I’m excited for both of us and I thank you sincerely, as without you I’d have to stop doing one of my favorite things: designing and making new pieces of silver jewelry! And I truly love what I do for work, and have a daily appreciation for the people, like you, who make it all possible.
And that brings us to the next main point here: In just a few short days my last show of the year 2017 will be happening, at the beautiful Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Gaithersburg Maryland, November 17th-19th, the weekend just before Thanksgiving. It’s perhaps my favorite show of the year because the turnout is so terrific, plus I make sure I have a lot of new things ready to be worn home right from the show! The new Opals I’m getting ready to set this week are knocking me out – they’re like holding fire in your hands. The Pietersites I’m setting are blue and sparkling, like water running through them while you watch. Oh, there’s so much more to show you – so please come out to this huge (400+ craftspeople) show and see all the new things for yourself. I’ll be in the second barn into the show, and I can’t wait to see you!
Hi and thank you, a real thank you to all you wonderful people who came out to the Woodstock/New Paltz show and made it one of the best Fall shows I’ve had there. We even braved rain and flooding on Sunday and had a number of memorable people “make my day”!
And now my thoughts are turning to Gaithersburg Maryland, and the Sugarloaf show there October 20-22nd. I’ve found a lot of amazing stones over the summer and designed some new settings that I think are pretty and exciting, so now is the fun time when I can head out to my shop and create some brandy new things to bring to Gaithersburg. It’s so fulfilling to make new things and have you come out to the shows, touch them and like them, and maybe wear one home.
That’s the reason I don’t, and won’t, sell online, or by mail, or through stores. At the shows, we get to meet each other in person, I get to show you all the things I’ve been dreaming up and making, maybe you find that one special piece that was made just for you, and we each go home with a real smile on our face.
I love my life and value your contribution to the whole picture. See you in Gaithersburg!
Yay! It’s almost time for one of my favorite shows: The Woodstock/New Paltz Art and Craft Fair. It’s the weekend that, when I was younger, meant the end of summer. Labor Day signaled that school is starting and the fun is over. But now that I’m grown up, it’s the start of my favorite part of the summer: warm days, uncrowded weekends and one of the country’s best Craft Fairs!
I love selling my jewelry person to person. It’s the only way I do it: the good old fashioned I-make-it-and-hand-it-right-to-you kind of relationship. I love it and I hope you’ll come out to the show on Labor Day weekend and enjoy it too!
The weather forecast is great, temps in the 70s with sunny skies. What more could we ask for? So come on out and look for my booth in its usual place near the entrance to the Big Tent A. I’ll see you there!
