What is happening this week

Quick recap on another awesome show.......  We just completed Pleasant Hill Art and Wine Festival

Our front table with some of the Museum Collection Statement Necklaces and Traveling Boho Bracelets

Check out our new necklace display

We have everything from art wood tile pieces, handmade earrings and $20 earrings great for gifts
We receive so many compliments on our displays and designs. We were thrilled to have so many return customers the last couple shows. Ladies coming in to buy additional pieces and bringing their friends.
That is what this is all about. The interaction with our customers. We take the time to make adjustments to the bracelets, adding length or making things fit a bit differently. Most everyone wants to wear their new treasures as they walk around the show. What a compliment!!

We had the pleasure of meeting a sweet new friend who has been following my work for a few years.  We chatted about our style and how Mike and I have renamed, rebranded and brought our line to the point we are at currently in our journey. We also got to spend some time with one of our favorite art bead designers, Tina Francis and her husband Ken. This summer I designed with her beach pieces and some really cute acorns that I made art bead necklaces with. I was a bit surprised when I was about to show her some of them, most have sold. Thats always a good thing!!

We have a few items that are really hot sellers for us right now. The Traveling Boho Wrap Bracelets are going fast. We are down to just a couple colors. Not to worry, they are first on my asap list to make more in assorted colors including black and bronze, teal, and several of my fall collection colors.
You can reserve a color, just send a request.  They sell for $120 each. Some of our customers are collecting several colors to suit their wardrobe. 

 Mike has a long list of bronze pieces to complete in the next couple weeks and more of our Urban Boho art bead earrings. We have a brand new design in the works that is going to be fantastic using his bronze or copper focal's and my beaded work.

He is also teaching his beginning bronze clay class the first weekend of November at Beads on Main in downtown Vacaville. He plans to teach a follow up intermediate class in Jan- Feb. If you are interested sign up early as this class in in demand.

We had a lovely weekend, even with the hot weather, possibly our last out door show of this season. Not to worry we have inside shows coming and they are bigger than ever. We are scheduled to do a trunk show at the Held's Holiday show Nov 6th, and Sacramento and San Jose Harvest Festivals the last two weekends in Nov. See our schedule and show information on our calendar on the website. Designs in the Light

For this week we are taking off a few days and traveling to see our grand kiddos on the Oregon Coast. It will be our first little mini vacation in over 2 1/2 years. We work 7 days a week with a time out for our local grandkids so this long over due and we will come back to a serious month of designing for our holiday season sales.

Etsy and our website: With all the business we do, and all the tasks involved we are slow to list new items on our sites so if you see something you like on our pictures please inquire. We would love to help you find your perfect gift.
