destashing for First Friday

First Friday is tonight!  Come see me from 6-9 at our studio on Glenwood.  I will have tons of new work, destash beads, and for the first time ever, I'll be selling my handmade supplies in person.   If your in the area its the perfect chance to pick up some new jewelry making goodies and save on shipping.

its about time

after, i'm embarrassed to say it, several years of procrastination, i {Finally} got around to making a banner for my booth display!  other than one slight road bump in the form of a crooked "t", the process went smoothly and i am really happy with how it turned out.  i finished just in time for Raleigh Wide Open and even had a enough extra fabric left over to accent the new display pieces, an amazing vintage mirror and a beat up old wooden frame, that i picked up at Suzanna's Antiques (love this place, thanks Johanna and Kristen for telling me about it).  while i was at Joann's picking up the fabric for the banner i stumbled across a book i have some pieces published in on the shelves.  yay!
i also spent some time last week working on a prototype for a new bracelet design.  its a wide cuff bracelet with a lovely, organic look.  the wire i used is too thin so this one doesn't hold its shape very well, but i have some thicker gauge wire on order and hope to refine the design and incorporate it into the Metamorphosis Metals late summer/ early fall collection.
