productive day

Posted: July 19th, 2007 | Author: | Filed under: art, jewelry | 2 Comments »

This afternoon I knocked out one of the big items on my populous to-do list: getting a handful of new jewelry items finished and posted on Etsy.

et70-012-a1.jpg I’m especially pleased with the brass etchings I’ve been working on. I first learned this etching technique several years ago, and in the past week I’ve been experimenting with how to apply some permanent color. I think these fit in nicely with the other garden-themed pieces I started making in the spring. I have many, many more than are posted on Etsy; come out to an upcoming show to see more.

The Avon Lake Summer Market show launched their website today: Looks like lots of great vendors again this year.

Today I learned I was accepted into another summer show. It’s a small, first-year show, so I’m not quite sure what to expect, but I hope it will be a good one. If you’re out and about that day, I’d love it if you would stop by and say hello.

Sunday, August 12

Rocky River Reservation in the Cleveland Metroparks

Here’s hoping they’ll get some kind of publicity going for it soon; I wasn’t able to dig up anything on the web.

2007 Avon Lake Summer Market

I will post about this again when the date gets closer, but several people have asked whether or not I was doing this show again and to give them more details, so here you go:

Avon Lake Summer Market
Saturday, 28 July 2007
32770 Lake Road (at Route 83; map)

The Summer Market is a benefit for preservation and restoration of the Thomas Folger Home (note: the Folger Home website is all bells & whistles [including sound] with even less [and well-buried, at that] information about the show than I’m giving you here, but it does give a little history of the Folger Home, if you’re interested).

This is a fun, well-organized show at the lakeshore with about fifty vendors selling all kinds of great stuff: home decor, flowers and plants, baked goods, quality arts & crafts, antiques, and so on. This isn’t the same stuff you see everywhere else, and the scenery can’t be beat. I was so impressed with this show last year that I expressed my desire to be included this year less than halfway through the day last year. Hope to see you there.

pale blue earrings My Etsy shop is now up and running! Look for new items every couple of days — there’s a queue of fun stuff waiting to be photographed and posted, and I’m working on some cool new ideas. Feedback is always appreciated.
