Yesterday's Show

Hello, everyone. I had a nice show. Not everyone I invited was able to come, but enough came to have a great time.

Here are a few of the pics I took today, not yesterday. My husband jinxed me by saying the battery in the camera was probably dead. I only got one photo yesterday before the thing went dead.

This is the table layout I used. I had no idea what I was going to do until the night before. I had bought little pumpkins and gourds a week ago because I wanted to use them. I had the candleabras from a closeout of an outlet last year. My candles weren't the best, but it was all I had at the moment. I used the candle holders and the leaves on the candelabras to hand necklaces and earrings. That worked out well. I put a necklace on the candle holder and let it dangle and I put the corresponding earrings on the wax catching part of the candle holder. I also used the pumpkins to dangle necklaces since the stems were strong enough to hold them.

This next picture is the little pumpkin holding one of my favorite necklaces. Obviously, this one didn't sell. It is a porcelain focal bead dangle with deep blue druk beads. I used some simple chain maille for the chain attached to the clasp. It really stands out when someone puts it on. This was tried on a few times during the show.

Here is a pic of my next favorite necklace, which also didn't sell, but was tried on a few times. It is aventurine pebbles and an odd-shaped aventurine pendant. I like to use the jump rings to make little flowers between the stations of the pendant. I love the color of the green with the silver jump rings and spacers.

At this time, I used only silver-plate heads and jump rings. Some items were sterling, but not many. I am not comfortable enough with my skills to work in sterling or gold. I like working with copper for my sample wire wrapping pieces. Not many people have seen jewelry in copper. I get a lot of comments from my steady customers on the copper items I wear. They have not yet requested any pieces in copper.

Let me know what you think of these few pics. I hope you liked them.

Take care.
