Just a little art bead bracelet I designed this weekend.....
Time seems to be traveling faster each year and we don't get as much design time as we would love. This past month has been filled with many tasks regarding the business side of a jewelry business. We have been learning all kinds of new things and slowly implementing them into our life.
Many things are about to change as Mike and I begin our production on new lines for our websites, Etsy shops and summer shows. My goodness shows are just around the corner.
What to look for is a name change, yet to be decided for Mike's jewelry line. He added jewelry into his fine art photography Etsy site WaterSouls Studios last year. After introducing his line at the fall shows he has set up his own studio in another room in our home and is in the process of developing several collections.

These are a couple more shots of my weekend bracelet.
We have cleared a space in the garage for a work bench and added a kiln and Mike is busy with sketching and creating bronze and silver pieces. He has so many ideas and it will fit beautifully in both of our lines. I also plan to design some components in bronze to begin with and have dabbled at it. It is amazing how a piece of clay can come out into a beautiful piece to incorporate into your designs.
I have several shops the I sell my designs and I continue to design for them. If you are in the Vacaville area check out "In the Mix" at 11 Town Square Ste. B downtown Vacaville. Darci has darling fresh spring and summer clothes. The ladies are loving it.
In the Sacramento area "Trezhers Gift shop at 3214 Riverside Blvd, Sacramento also carries my line.
I will be adding new spring designs to my shop soon as I have so many ideas and never enough time.
We will be building a website soon. We are still in the process of making decisions on this as it is a big step for us. We are working on our mailing list and collecting names for that. We will be sending show info and creative news as we go, not too much and never shared. If you would like to be on this list please leave a message with your email address in comments.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a lovely week.
