about my displays

after i posted this photo, many of you commented on and asked about my displays. i thought i would share a bit about them with you. (in the front of the photo are some beautiful sign holders)

when i started showing my work at the artisans gallery, i knew i needed a unique and "rustic" way to display it. my friend meg, (also known as "ironmaegan") who had made some displays for me in the past, was very busy and suggested i call her friend brandon to see if he could do something for me. remember brandon? he made the rose for his girlfriend for v-day? he went above and beyond what i hoped for and made me some gorgeous displays.

over the past year he has made me quite a few, always for a very good price; he's a very good guy and has become a friend.

these are difficult to see because i photographed them at the gallery, but you get the idea.

in the back is a screen for earrings. look at the intricate tendrils at the corners.

here he is at work today in his shop, making my new ring displays.

i even helped a bit!

look how beautiful they are!
i had been struggling to come up with a good way to feature my rings that went along the displays i already had and brandon made them a reality. yay!

Look at that big smile - looks like you were having fun with that torch! I really love the displays, as with your jewelry designs, everything is so cohesive, really looks nice. Good luck at the upcoming show-hope you sell a bunch and meet tons of nice people.

I am completely in love with that earring screen and those individual ring displays too, they're works of art in their own right which fit perfectly with your own work and complement it beautifully.
