bright & festive at Fiesta 2016!!!!
lucy fell asleep in her carseat and i tucked her under the table to give her a reprieve from all the action :O) this was our first show with lucy and she was definitely a trooper and loved the people watching. the last photo was of her having a little play time on a cozy blanket in the backyard of chris and ryan's studio.

i made this new triple pendant for the ABIA show at the austin airport. take a peek at the handmade austin women show featured there thru october.
oxidized sterling, hemimorphite drusy, limpet shell, vintage glass button
my orange ring box is all on display at the show if your flying thru and wanna swing by and see it in person.
thanks art fans of austin that came out to support handmade austin women last weekend. it was a huge success all around and a really great time. here's a few images of my display and pieces i showed.
here's a really shabby picture of my new white plexi display. it was awesome to be able to write the prices/materials for each piece just next to the piece...i've been wanting to make that happen for some time now and my old display was not conducive for that. the white background seemed to show my work well. i'm happy with the result...yay!!!
the 1st, 3rd and 4th images taken by photographer, rebecca bauer.
planning is in full swing. i'm so excited about this years show!! me and a handful of other rad austin ladies are combing thru all details...well, now!!! yay!
