Hello folks, I'm happy to announce that I will be part of a Pop-Up store over at the 15th arrondissement tomorrow, the 26th of June.  Its my first time in this location and I hope to meet lots of jewelry loving people!

Here's a sneak peek of some of the lovely pieces I'm bringing...

I was so moved when I opened the mail and saw this thank you note. A friend bought a present for his mother and he chose a bracelet I made with a wonderful blue eye trade bead from the 19th century and vintage  Majorca glass pearls.  His mother loved it, he said.

 I work from home and while this allows me great independence and flexibility, sometimes it makes me wonder whether what I do is good or not.   When  a piece sells, I feel happy that it pleased someone else.  It makes it easier to let go of my pieces, knowing that people are happy to have them and my pieces find good homes. Its even better when  I get proof in the mail like this gracious handwritten note.

 Hello friends, I hope you're still there.  I've been absent awhile thanks to a number of trade fairs and family events.  In any case, I'm back with some photos of some of the events.

You may remember that in May I was in Morges, Switzerland for the Salon UNICREA. What a wonderful experience that was!  We were blessed with clear skies and hardly any rain! And I had the chance to meet with a wonderful new public and other talented and nice designers and artists.

As I was alone during the fair (my first time to be truly alone, and far from familiar territory) I was not able to take a lot of pictures of the other stands.  But I did take a quick look around to see how the Castle could become the backdrop to our creations.
