New Recycled Earrings

I've posted a new group of Redeemed, recycled earrings to my online shop.

As always they are one of a kind and I'm thinking this might be the last grouping to get posted until June because I just have a lot of other things going on in my life right now including preparing for two shows next month.

I've made the selection as varied as possible but I can tell you the black/white/grey, more graphic ones usually seem to go first. Maybe they are the easiest to wear with everything/anything. Or maybe I do a better job with the design. I'm not sure.

ACC Baltimore

The American Craft Council show in Baltimore was a success in every way ... except for arriving almost too late to get onto and off of the loading dock and the ensuing stress.  Yes, other than a crazy set  up - a great weekend for sure!

Necklaces on one of my tables. 

The response from customers was overwhelming. This show is LARGE (550 craftspeople this year) and with that much great work to see  I am humbled and appreciative for each person who took the time to visit my booth. You were a great encouragement! And what fun to meet so many people I've only ever known online - I wish we had had more time to talk.

Looking out from my booth and a view of the ACC Welcome booth - I was right at the front door.

Living fairly close to Baltimore meant that I had rotating help all weekend from my husband (who put in a great deal of time and effort) my niece, my son's best friend and my oldest friend in the world.  (Not that she's that old, its just that I've just known her since I was three.) She snapped these shots of my booth later on Sunday when things slowed down a bit.

My booth "glowing" on the right  (maybe I need LESS lights?) and
