In my own defense, I could make the case that I've had my hands full lately, what with moving into new digs, health issues, yadda yadda. I really should have been blogging through this stuff.
Instead of trying to recap, I'll just press on from here.
I'm going to be in an arts & crafts show near the end of October. I'm trying to keep my expectations low but at the same time I'm harboring hope that this may lead to a permanent place in a gallery in Old Town.
I'll have two tables, and I've been busily making things for this show - lots of "Memento Mori" , "Day of the Dead" sort of things for one table, then everything from my ArtFire shop on the "beadwork sample sale" table.
Here's some of what I've managed to make so far:
2 dozen earrings and 18 bangles so far. A few more chunky bangles are on the worktable, but I'm not sure if I'll have time to do any neck pieces.
I just found a new source for boxes for embellishing! I'll be very happy to get back to making more expressive bead embroidered pieces, but first I have to dye these boxes. They are a rather nauseating shade of yellowish seafoam green at present. I prefer a much more neutral base - something more subtle.
So I've got my work cut out for me, and there will be more later.
