I'm pretty excited about my line-up through the end of 2011. The events are all so different from each other, making them extra fun to plan. This is the schedule:
Yellow Springs Street Fair
Oct 8, 2011
Yellow Springs is a college town with a little hippie undercurrent. I'm having fun picking out the pieces to take there; definitely some cool pendants, adjustable sterling silver squiggle rings, and a lot of gemstone, wire-wrapped hair combs / clips. Fun stuff.
Pickerington Antique & Craft Show
Nov 5. 2011
This one will be fantastic because I can mix two of my interests, art and antiques. I used to decorate my home with antiques, and have some very cool pieces to offer along with my jewelry. These include a stereoscope and stereo cards from the mid 1800's, glassware, and some paper collectibles. Can't wait!
Dec 2-4, 2011
This is an intimidating event. Attendance is 18,000+ and artists compete from all over the U.S. for acceptance to the show. I'll be working really hard on new jewelry for this one-- hoping to deserve this chance to join so many wonderful artists at Winterfair. I'll include different styles / techniques of metal work, but will focus most on my fold form jewelry. I'll post my booth number on the blog when I have it. I'd love to see some friends in the crowd and will really appreciate your support if you stop by and say hi!
I've spent this last week planning my booth, working on displays, and making things like clasps and earring wires. Nothing quite photo worthy but I promise to have something next week.
Thanks for stopping by!

This began as a hobbyist's blog.
Over time it became a quest to support & connect metalsmiths around the globe who use foldforming techniques in their work.
See how it all
