As I said in a previous post I will be in Syracuse, N.Y. at the Innovative Bead Expo this weekend. Check this link for show details, if any of you are in the area please stop by for a visit, I love to meet my customers and blog friends face to face.
I have not done this before, but I am going to close the shop this Thursday, 4/19 until next Monday, 4/23. I need the shop inventory for my show.
If you have your eye on anything you were planning on purchasing go for it. Or I would be willing to hold any item for you until May 2nd, which would be my next listing update. Please don't put anything on hold unless you are sure you want it.
Some exciting news!
I will be a vendor at Beadfest in Philadelphia this August.
I went as a customer last year to scope it out, and I decided to be brave and give it a try.
I met so many blog friends at this show last year, so I am really looking forward to reconnecting with some old and new online friends this year. I will keep you posted with show details as I receive them. I don't have a booth location yet, but I do know I will be in an area called Artisan's Alley. I think this is a great idea to have all the smaller Artisan tables in one location, everything on these tables has to be handmade by the artist so you are going to see unique beads and components for your jewelry designs.
I also had one of my components accepted to appear in the Beads 2012 issue.
Again I will fill you in on the details when I know more.
I happened upon my components, in the last two issues of Bead Trends magazines.
Thank you to Michelle and Rejetta. For some reason I can't link to Rejetta's shop, so please visit her at jettabugjewelry.etsty.com
Enjoy the photos from around my yard.
