Friday May 22

Day after my 43rd birthday. It's been a long busy week bookended by long busy weekends. I'm tired, been working out every day but hardly had time to make jewelry. So much to do, so little time. Next show is the Ephrata Hospital Auxilliary Craft Show June 6th. I'll have my best bud Ian helping again, he had such a great time in Elizabethtown. The show is on the hospital grounds, hope to see you there.

I'm Back

Sorry I've been away, I've been so busy these past few Fridays. I did get to see the Bacon Brothers, the following Friday I had classes down in Philadelphia and learned how to make a new bracelet and a pendant, then had to get ready for a show last Friday and today I'm getting ready to take some jewelry down to Salon Fin on the corner of Frederick and Mary. I will be displaying my jewelry there in between shows. There is talk of a First Friday event on June 5th and on June 6th I'll be in Ephrata at Ephrata Hospital's Festival and craft show. Most of the summer I'll be idle until Labor Day weekend when I'll do the Roots Craft show on Saturday, then the Landis Woods Art Show the last Saturday of the month. Other than those shows, I will be planning my open house for November. The show I do in Philadelphia at the Unitarian Church has been cancelled this year. So very sad as my Father and I do that show together every year and it's so nice to spend time with him and his friends.

I recently designed a Mother's Tree of Life Pendant based on many of the Tree of Life pendants I have seen, using birthstone colors in swarovski crystals to signify each child and grandchild for my mom. I'm thinking of making these on a per order basis but haven't decided on a price yet for them. I also have not yet decided what kind of cord to use as the necklace part.

So until next time, that's the update for W Jewelry designs. I'll be posting pictures of the new designs next week sometime.

Be well, and see ya at the Springsteen concert tonight!!
