Holiday is here!

Black Friday has come and gone, now it's Cyber Monday (or Cyber Week, as I'm calling it) and shoppers are ready to see what we have to offer! I'm in the midst of a busy and varied show schedule and have a few now under my belt! Twist Fair V was great! Lots of familiar and new customers and great vendors and atmosphere kept the event up there as one of my favorite shows to do!! I also have done other shows, including my first time at Monadnock Music Christmas Fair this past holiday weekend right in town! Great people and vendors, as well as the added bonus of being mere minutes from my house! I could get used to this!!
Next up is a really unique and fun event- I'm doing a Trunk Show at my lovely friend, Dana's new Vintage Shop, Concetta's Closet in Newmarket, NH Saturday December 4th. Unlike most Trunk Shows, for the first time ever I will be making custom button rings on the spot for your enjoyment or for special, unique gift-giving needs! I will also be bringing more items than are normally carried in her shop, including Christmas Ornaments (that are only available at shows or events this year and are selling out faster than I can make them) and also more bangles, clocks, and earrings. Items will be made on a first come, first served basis and can be made while you shop her amazing high end vintage selection. This event has gotten lots of press so RSVP on Facebook so we know to be prepared!
Then, I will be moving onto my final show of the year, Holly Fair in Cambridge, MA on December 11th & 12th. It is a two-day event right in Harvard Square and was a great time last year. There is lots of variety in vendors and a beautiful place to shop in the surrounding area as well! Unfortunately, I had to end the show season a little early for health reasons, but may be listing some of the remainder online and am always open to requests for some last minute home shopping parties or possibly event private shopping appointments!
Thanks for everyone who has supported my business this year! To say "Thank You", please use code CYBERWEEK at checkout on my Etsy page for 20% off your purchase through Sat. Dec 4th at midnight , EST! I can already see more new products and new opportunities in the works for next year--stay tuned!

Gearing up for Holiday Shows!

So busy getting ready for show season that I haven't had time to post at all! Must get ready for a full show schedule in November and December, including shows in several Massachusetts and New Hampshire locations so far. I have been making ornaments since the beginning of October and also stocking bangles, clocks, vintage charm necklaces, etc... Also, I am busy getting stock together for the retail locations I sell in--including MADE in Jackson Hole Wyoming, Fisherman's Daughter in Chatham, MA (cape cod), and the NEW Concetta's Closet fine vintage store in Newmarket, NH (see pic above), where she will be selling my purely vintage items like vintage button rings and vintage charm necklaces, earrings, and bangles! So much to do, and so few elves to help out! Check out list of events and complete list of where to buy in the right hand column of the blog or on my Facebook Page under info tab!
I am also having FREE Shipping on ALL items in the Etsy Shop, through October 31st (a.k.a. Halloween & My Birthday)!! Take advantage while you can.

More info and items to come as I get them done!

Ready or not....

....It's show season! Even though I am cutting down on the amount of shows I'm doing this year, there are still plenty of great ones coming up that I will be at. I just finished doing Twist IV in Northampton, MA and, as always it was a great show! Thanks to everyone who came and to the organizers and sponsors. (I forgot my camera, among other things, so no pictures from me this time). This week starts the first time I'm doing the Peterborough Farmers' Market, right downtown in Depot Square from 3-6 PM every Wednesday through October. I am excited to be part of it, as I have shopped there nearly weekly since I've lived there, but have never been a part of it yet! After that, I will be doing some dates at Concord Arts Market, in Concord, NH, beginning June 5th from 9-3 in Eagle Square Downtown Concord is a great place to spend the day, and even more so with the Arts Market! I will be doing dates throughout the summer and fall. June 12th I'll be off to Hampshire College's 40th Anniversary Celebration Marketplace, and spending the weekend reliving the good ol' days with my friend. The Marketplace is Saturday only, from 11-5.
Check back here------------>to the right of this page for any other events that come up! If you aren't near any shows I'm doing and would like something you don't see in my Etsy Shop, please feel free to contact me for a custom listing! I will still do custom orders on clocks, bangles, buttons rings, etc. If you are interested in hosting a home trunk show or shopping party, email me ( as well!

Spring Cleaning

As I plot new events and products for Spring/Summer, I am doing some virtual "spring cleaning" in regards to events and products. I really have had a grueling schedule the past few years trying to get my business out there, trudging through multiple health issues, taking time away from my personal life and depending on family and friends for help. Now that I have experienced many different shows and experiences, I am more able to narrow the scope to things that work for me, my customers and my business at this time! I am planning on doing a variety of shows, from markets, to indie craft shows, to home parties, and also special events and celebrations! I will give first preference to more local shows, as I felt I wasn't focusing enough on this in the past, along with shows that are really trying to help the community around them! I love to travel though, so, expect a variety of shows in the Northeast that are unique in theme or purpose. I also have a few very favorite shows that I cannot support enough, and therefore, will be partaking in some of those as I do yearly! This applies to new stores as well, and I will be expanding to new markets where I feel the message of buying local, eco-friendly, and handmade are the number one priority!
I also plan on working on new products that allow me to expand my creativity and market. I want to do more "art" in mediums I have explored in the past, such as collage and sculpture, and incorporate them into useful objects, giving them a dual purpose (like the clocks). I continue to welcome custom orders and have no problem making some of your old favorites upon request! Thanks to all of my customers, shop owners, and everyone else who supports me for allowing me to create and be happy doing what I do!

Re-launch of my Etsy Supply Shop!

I am in Pre-Spring cleaning mode and since the Holidays have ended and new projects and endeavors are coming for the year, I decided to relaunch my Etsy Supply Shop, ! I started it last year when I was about to move, thinking it would make packing easier, and it was really successful, so, here we are again. Look for the obvious jewelry making destash along with other art and craft supplies. I have extras of lots of things, so feel free to contact me if you're looking for something specific.
Meanwhile, I continue to plan next years shows, events, NEW shops to buy my creations at and, of course, NEW creations! Stay tuned for details, as this year I will be focusing on more local shows (with a few select further locations) and other changes to the business!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year and a big Thanks to everyone who supported/helped/blogged/featured myself or my business this past year! SO much went on this year that could've really caused my business to come to a halt- but because of people's interest and support, we pulled through!
This year, we will be focusing even more on being local and supporting other local artisans and businesses, trying out new and positive shows and endeavors, and focusing on the art and the artist! Please check "upcoming events" on the right side of the blog, and soon, our actual website, to find out where we'll be and what we'll be involved with! (Don't just assume we'll be at the same old shows every week!) Another good way to find out as soon as I make new things or announce events is to be a fan on facebook: or follow me at . I will also be announcing an "open studio time" for those of you remotely local, which will be a set aside time that I will be here and available for people to stop by and shop, browse, place custom orders, etc!
I am really focused on making clocks, collages, and other home decor and art this year, so bear with me of I am featuring less of the jewelry you may be used to. I will still do some of that upon request- I just need to branch out to not get stifled or bored!
Thanks again for all of your support!
