Shaken, Not Stirred

il_570xN.811176269_onpsThis is one of my latest creations:  a pair of beaded martini glasses for your ears!  Swarovski crystals and pressed Czech glass are mixed (not shaken) to make these adorable martini glass earrings! The green “olive” even has a red “pimiento.” The martini glass stem is made of Swarovski crystals and frosted Czech glass beads. Handcrafted silver plated ear wires add that extra unique style that’s you.

Hotel Beach Show

I was at an arts and crafts show last weekend with Gene of Gene’s Joint.  We participated with three other artisans, at the invitation of a person who, on a whim, set it up.

We had a small conference room in a hotel, and the premise was that hotel guests would stop by on their way to the lobby.

I was pleased to sell one of my nicest pieces at the show.  The buyer liked the dyed orange jade nuggets, and she fell in love with the handcrafted wire settings I made for the earrings. They were the ones that Gene of Gene’s Joint taught me.  I used copper wire that married well with the orange jade nuggets, and I added Swarovski bicone elements to add just a touch of flash and sparkle.  To go with it, I wire wrapped a bracelet, and together they made a pretty and very unique set.

One of the most unexpected sales that Gene made was as we were leaving and packing up.  We were headed out through the hotel lobby, and a young lady stopped to admire one of the earring displays we were carrying.  Right then and there, she bought Gene’s “Abacus Earrings,” hand wrapped with bronze wire and obsidian beads, set together to look like little abacuses.  She was thrilled at acquiring such a unique piece.

For both Gene of Gene’s Joint and I, it was a successful weekend.  We got our business promoted, sold our art, and made happy customers, too.
