Bye-Bye Display Pieces

So, I am a loser for not blogging sooner.  Today's client was sick and had to postpone, so it is time to catch up on dreaded internet work.   Last month I sold at The California Gift Show.  I had hoped it would be better than last time.  It was sadly, Not.  I had twice the inventory and made half the sales.
Many factors played into this.  Poorly run and managed, crappy layout and you could barely see my booth.  Attendance was down and more exhibitors than vendors complained than not about these and many things.  Hopefully the management company gets their acts together.  BUT....I really try to see the tiny rainbows in every storm.  My goal for this show was to be able to clear out my jewelry displays and display trays so I can focus on my painting/sculpting and start my children's book.  While several pieces did sell, more came home with me than I wanted.  <sigh>  I exhausted my supplies in creating these and now they are kind of haunting me...LOL.  Pretty ghosts they are.  But I am not a cluttery artist and if I am done with it...it HAS to go.   SO...clearing them out.  Posting pics here so I can pin them on Pinterest.  I have made several hundred of these over the years and they are incredibly functional and beautiful.  All made from 1920's to 1960's metal lamp parts.





















If you are interested, message me.

Onward and upward!
