trevor completed his first project and i would like to share it with you. i am so proud of him! here he is, sporting his fabulous ring:
it is a very wide band ring with a smoky quartz.
quite good, eh? i told him i would let you know what you all said, so please do leave comments!
and these lovely items are now in the etsy shop for you:
the "i vow an endless bliss" ring, with laguna agate
remember this post, that mentions the biographical john keats movie, bright star? well, this ring is inspired by that movie.
two more "rustic nuance" bracelets, in aquamarine and prehnite with epidote
and another "resolve" ring, with a gorgeous faceted labradorite
speaking of "resolve" i forget to share a lovely story with you from moab. a very nice woman came in with her husband and daughter and bought a necklace and a pair of earrings. a little while later, another sweet lady who had a booth down the way came in to talk to me and we discussed doing a trade. she came back and got the same type of necklace as the previous woman, and several pairs of earrings. (and i got a beautiful apron and bag!) later in the day, another woman came in and said that both of her sisters had bought the same necklace from me without even realizing it and now she wanted one too! she also bought my "resolve" necklace. we chatted for a while and she has since come to visit the etsy shop. she just wrote to me to say that she and her sisters were all at a wedding and they each showed up with one of my necklaces on. i just love that!
another cool thing that happened in moab that i did not share with you was that my very first sale of the weekend was to a woman who lives in hollywood, doing make-up for actors and actresses. she spent over $800! she bought the peacock necklace, the tres flores necklace, and the two spinny-petaled flower pieces. it was so cool. she was in moab working on the filming of a movie called "john carter goes to mars" or some such thing.
and, speaking of moab, i am considering not doing my next show in carbondale. it was a bit expensive to get in, but i am afraid with only one week between my uber-vacation and the show, i may not be able to pull it off. and i do not want to spend my trip stressing about it. what do you think?
