A wonderful lady named Elizabeth bought this necklace tonight. This is by far one of my more elegant pieces and looks good on just about every skin tone and every age for that matter. I have gotten a lot of compliments on this piece at trunk shows and craft shows that I have been to since I created it last Fall. It is made with two kinds of fresh water pearls - smooth round white pearls and gold (what I call) rice crispy pearls. All findings are 14k gf. I am going to miss this necklace, but I am ecstatic that it sold and is going to a good home :)
I had some nice photos taken this weekend at Craft ATTACK, this is just one of them (blogger is acting lame and doesn't want to up load all of the high quality photos). Danielle Anthony is an awesome photographer who was offering some product shots for the artists. I definitely took her up on her offer :) I love these photos and think they showcase my work and parts of my booth set up very nicely. You can visit her blog @ http://dreadsky.blogspot.com
I think the organizers of this event did an awesome job. It was by far, the most talented show I have been to thus far. I was very impressed with the artists they chose. Everyone was super friendly and kind - so were the customers. I think they targeted a strong audience in this city.
Personally, unfortunately, this was by far not my best show. I think that factors are involved: the economy mainly, and there were a lot of artists. Both things beyond my control. I did sell a few things and gave out a lot of cards, but it wasn't as good - financially - as some other shows I have been to. I don't think this is anyone's fault, I think that it just isn't a good time for luxury goods. I think my prices are very fair, I know I have a quality product. I think I could change up my display, but for right now, I am not doing any shows probably until Thanksgiving/Christmas.
Since I will be taking an intense LSAT prep course for the next month and a half, I will be pretty occupied. Hopefully making jewelry will still be a great stress outlet for me. Hopefully.
So time is cracking down rather quickly! I am more or less ready for this weekend. Recently though, I have been doing some more life/soul searching and I am going to take the LSAT in December. I am being smart and signed up for a prep course - no matter how I do, I don't think this course could ever hurt me. However, the first day is this weekend on SATURDAY! It is a practice test (first of a handful) and while it isn't 100% crucial that I attend, I would like to put myself in as many testing situations as possible. The test is from 10-2pm.
Craft ATTACK is from 9:30 to 5:30 pm. If I take this test, I will miss a 4 hour chunk at my booth. However, there is a chance my mom and friends may be able to help me out for a few hours - these friends are close enough to know about what I do and to effectively represent me and my work. I am hoping they can help out, but understand if they can't.
Regardless, I am excited about both new ventures. I have high hopes for everyone involved in Craft ATTACK - this could be the start of a really awesome event with a lot of positive local involvement. I can only PRAY that I do well on the LSAT to get into a decent law school...but that is much further away than this weekend ;)
Big things are always on the horizon...no matter how far away they are.
Hello my name is Morgan and you have reached my blog about my handcrafted jewelry business called Karma. I love jewelry and even more so, I love making it with my own two hands. I chose the name Karma because I believe in the concept and I also believe that it has a natural place with jewelry. This is because jewelry can have the ability to transcend one's mood and attitude based on how they feel when they wear a piece of jewelry.
