A Lot of Hard Work

As you may or may not have noticed, I have a bright shiny new banner! It represents my five *NEW* jewelry collections:



Gothic Beauty

Keeping Time


They are all themes that I have used in my jewelry before; but now they're in complete collections of necklaces, bracelets & earrings. Why all this hard work? Well, I got invited to participate in the San Francisco Gift Show this August 6th, 7th, 8th & 9th by Mari at Spanglish Arte!
There has been many a late night for me stringing, smashing crimp beads, wire wrapping and even spray painting! Yeah, I know, intense right?!?

After I was done with all that assemblage, it was time to shoot some photos. I asked the lovely, Miss Lisa if she would be willing to participate and she gladly accepted. Along with the help of my beautiful niece, Marianna, we did a two day photo shoot this past week at the Gothic gates of the Historic Sacramento Cemetery off Broadway & East Lawn off Folsom Blvd.. It was spiritual, fun, hot & exhausting - but we labored through and got some terrific results!

I'm hoping more boutiques pick up my jewelry! Wish me luck at the trade show!!!
