Saturday, I did a craft show for the 3rd year in a row for me. I worked hard to streamline the setup and perfected my display tags for days. I was excited for a successful day. Despite the economy, I knew sales would be lower than what I really wanted. I had hopes to at least make my booth space and pass out some cards for hopefully future sales. I was so surprised to see 2 or 3 people stop by my jewelry and notice they were wearing jewelry of mine. Wow, what a great conversation starter and the feeling of seeing people wearing my work is one of my joys being in this business. I love that part of the business!
I sold 2 pieces that really surprised me. One piece was in my shop for a long time and was one of the first wire wrapped pieces, which was an agate wrapped in copper wire.
The other was a bail I had just wrapped in sterling silver wire with a blue lace agate cabochon. It was only in my shop a couple of days. I wish I could find another stone like it to make another, but unfortunately some pieces are just a one of a kind.
