Successful Sale at Oceanport Gardens

Well the jewelry sale at Oceanport Gardens Senior Residence on Nov. 10th went very well.  It's amazing how much seniors love jewelry.

After the sale I collapsed on the couch and did nothing for 24 hours.  It's a lot of work packing all the jewelry up and setting it all out on the 2 long tables I used.  Then packing everything up NOT in the right order.  Then sorting all the necklaces, bracelets, etc. into the right bags.  Then removing the items I had sold from the Etsy shops.  But it was worth it to see the gleam in the eyes of the ladies who each had a new piece of jewelry to add to their lore.
Many brought their daughters or daughters-in-law who did their Christmas shopping.

Lots of Earrings

With all the heat this summer on the East Coast I have been hibernating in my studio making scads of earrings all of polymer clay.  They are a very simple design with lots of texture.  While creating them I found that they looked just as good upside down as they did right side up, hence, here are both versions.

 You can see them all at my Etsy shop: Polymer Panache

I need as many votes I can get, so I am asking if you can please go to this link and click one of the stars, there are 1-5 stars, 5 star would be FANTASTIC.
If I make it in the top 25, 5 will be chosen by judges and there artwork will be printed on t-shirts and sold at select H&M stores all over the country and also will be installed in the H&M store window on 42nd St and 5th Ave where it will be on display .

Jewelry with an Ocean/Seacoast Theme

Last week my jewelry was accepted to be sold at the Coastal Cottage Boutique in my town.  They have lots of items with a shabby chic/seacoast theme including furniture, handpainted signs and lots of things for the home or for gifts.  Now they have my line of jewelry too.  They did a nice job of the display of the jewelry with lots of light so it can be seen.  They placed it on their counter so customers can see it when they pay for an item.

Here are a few pics.

Mother's Day Sale at Oceanport Gardens, N. J.

I had my first Mother's Day jewelry show at Oceanport Gardens in New Jersey.  This is a senior citizen residence and I had my doubts about doing a jewelry sale for seniors.  I thought  jewelry would be the last item on their budget but I was pleasantly surprised.  I had more sales from these lovely ladies than I ever had with local craft shows.

I started taking a few photos when the show first started but then got so busy I wasn't able to take more.
Here are just a few of the women looking at the jewelry at the beginning of the sale.

They liked the jewelry so much they invited me back for another sale in November just in time for Christmas shopping.

Sale on Leopard and Tiger Earrings

Having a sale this week on Leopard and Tiger print glass earrings.  If you love the big cats you'll love these.  Only $7.00.

Beautiful watercolors of animals

 Here are some examples of another Etsy artist's watercolors.

"I paint to be happy. I get grumpy after a few days of not painting. Sometimes I get so busy that I forget how happy they make me. I mope around for a while and think, "What's wrong?" Then it dawns on me..."Oh, yeah, I haven't painted in awhile." -- Rachelle Levingston
