I am really proud of these, so I am cross-posting them everywhere.

Sterling silver and fine silver.

I made every bit of these by hand. I:

-cut the circles
-textured the circles
-made the rings
-soldered the rings in to itty bitty chains
-cut the bars
-soldered the bars to the chain, and chain to the circles
-polished everything all shiny.

Yeah, I'm proud.

Caleb said he's wearing them to work tomorrow.

I may post them on Etsy at some point, but I'm not sure what I would charge... it's too soon, I'm too into them at the moment.

Do you other artists get too into your art sometimes? Curious...

they're not on Etsy yet... sneak preview...
7th-Jul-2009 08:03 am - Exciting, but scary.
My jewelry will be carried in a store soon! (That's the exciting bit).

What do I send over for them to carry? (That's the scary bit).

I want to send over a range of prices, as well as materials, but they want to do a trial-run, and carry only a few things to start. (4-6 necklaces, 4-6 bracelets, 6 pairs earrings, a few rings). I think its low on the earrings, so I'd like to hear some opinions.

Now, don't get me wrong, its a real brick and mortar shop, but... its a hospital gift shop. I'm just as excited about it as I would be if MoMA's gift shop wanted to carry my jewelry, but I'm just as confused about what I should send for inventory.

What would you expect to see, and more importantly, what sort of displays appeal to you? I don't want to go with the velveteen busts and t-bars, but I don't have any better ideas.

Help, help!

10 more pounds, then I'll have lost 100.

I deserve a big reward. Lilly (my gemstone girl) is having a sale soon, too.

What's better than tiny pony?Collapse )

Being part of the marketplace was a blast. I loved the atmosphere we created this year.

Group 1 had about 250-500 people in it (I'm bad at estimates) and I know they counted 1800 in the last group. SO hoarse after wards. And sore.

My booth was awesome sauce. I brought some files, and my tiny hammer*, and every time I started banging on something, the entire crowd would stop to stare at me, and at least 5 people would take pictures.

I have new respect for goldfish.

I could have give away 250 business cards, easily. Too bad I don't even have any designed, yet! *sigh*. Cobbler's kids never have shoes, and graphic designer's wives' never have marketing materials.

If I had been willing to sell, I could have sold everything I brought with me, and left with orders to fill.

I had people come back to my "shop" after they finished the pageant and ask me 2 and 3 times if they could buy something.

Oh well, I'll know better next year.

Check out Collegedale Church's website for more pictures, and if anyone finds more pictures of me, let me know.

*Everything tiny is more awesome.

It's the silver chain I posted a pic of on here 2 (?) days ago. (20% off to LJ users! Include LJ username in notes to seller at checkout).

Photographing jewelry is tiring.

What did people do before digital? Cried more, I guess.

So, I dumped my phone into a glass of water.

If I had your number, I don't anymore.
