First weekend

The first weekend is done.  This is the first time I've participated on the tour as an individual.  I was pretty nervous, not sure what to expect.  My Sister came to help, having her laughing self around made all the difference.  We had a good time and in between groups of people we sat on the front porch, rocked and talked about all the things sisters talk about.

I got a lot of nice comments not only on my jewelry and my interesting studio processes but on my cute little house and my collection of artwork.  One lady wanted to know if the art was for sale, I said, "Nope, sorry".

The arts community in this area is really strong and we like to do trades, so we end up owning pieces that we could never afford, it's wonderful.

One more weekend to go, which I'm now looking forward to, because most of the work is done.  I ripped through my inventory and pulled out large handfuls of good quality jewelry that I either don't make anymore or that I've had too long.  It all went on the "island of misfit jewelry" table, "Make me an offer.", which ended up being sort of fun.  I heard a lot of bargains were available from many artists on the tour.



  1. Dang! Wish I could've been there. Sounds like fun was had by all and I would have loved shopping your 'misfits' table. I call them 'mad scientist experiments' when I make things that don't find a home for a long time. They're usually things that were tests of a design or color combination that take a while to find their owner. I once sold a pair of earrings I'd had for seven years!
    Have fun again next weekend!

  2. Susan,

    It's a fun tour, lots of interesting people to meet. The only bad thing is that I don't get to go on the tour.

    Wish you could be here too.
