Branching out.

I have felt the need broaden my product offerings. While prepping for the Lowcountry Artist Market I made a few new pieces, a choker|headband, a belt, and some cuffs. I was delighted that the cuffs were very popular and I sold the three I brought to the show. Unfortunately, I didn’t get photos. I will take a photo of the prototype tomorrow. In the mean time, here’s the choker and belt:

I have several pieces almost finished but they’re packed away. Some are some more ornate belts I have to dig out the boxes.

New stuff!

Ok, not exactly new because these were made for the Lowcountry Artist Market, but these are new photos of them. I have a few more pieces to edit before uploading everything to Etsy. My new challenge is taking these photos indoors. I had a sweet outdoor spot at the old house but it wasn’t always the most practical. I like the burlap but I’m also going to play with a few presentation ideas.

One of the moving bonuses was that I found my old peep toe heels!

Synchronicity

Michael and I were planning on getting in the attic today to hang the new pendants in my studio because we’re supposed to be experiencing some ‘mild’ weather – no higher than 90°. As I was checking my email the phone rings and it’s Lowe’s letting me know our fans have arrived. I almost missed seeing the notification that this necklace just sold!

New Sale

I believe this is more than just me saying I need to get back to work.

Debbi, I hope you enjoy wearing it as much as I enjoyed making it!

Lowcountry Artist Market

Yesterday’s show was a lot of fun but I missed having my posse around. It’s the first time I’ve done a show by myself, in like forever. Kristen did a great job organizing the event and I’m already excited for the next one, which will most likely be in the fall. I met a couple of very cool people and had great response from vendors and people attending the event. I had a nice dose of ‘we’ve heard about you’ in a very positive tone and that really blew me away! I sold a few shoe clip and wristbands. I’m so happy I had them and am motivated to keep making them. I had some nibbles on necklaces and hopefully someone who grabbed a card will visit my Etsy shop.

As usual, I was last minute getting some of these finished and didn’t get photos of the new stuff that sold. I will snap photos of what is left of the new inventory later in the week so I can upload them to Etsy. We dropped all of the booth goods at the new house after we left the Farm.

I’m also working ideas on a better table display. I had my standard dress form and a smaller decorative table version, as well has using my small velvet jewelry busts for the ribbon chokers. We started on papier mache bust but just couldn’t get it finished in time. Michael also brainstormed the stand for them.

New Piece

I realized that I hadn’t uploaded any photos of one of my new pieces that actually sold at the Inman Park Festival. I only got a couple of decent photos during the rush of the last day before we left for Atlanta.

I’m going to make another similar to this, as no two can be exact. 🙂

I am working on a write-up, but for now here are a couple of photos.

Inman Park Festival

Michael and I are joining a couple of friends to sell our collective crafts. I made 16 new necklaces and squeezed in extra shoe clip at the last minute. I have several pieces ‘in process’ that will help me with a show I’m doing here in Charleston on June 5. I took photos of everything but have only managed to get 6 uploaded to my Flickr. I also tried shooting a new way today while being SWARMED by gnats.

I’ll upload the rest when we get home along with a full report. Oh yes, new computer will be purchased next week!

Those two new shoe clips I mentioned the other day…
