The American Craft Show 2008

My first show for the year and I was in heaven! Never did I think I would get into a show of this magnitude and prestige. The press release they sent about it says it all: NEW WAVE CRAFT. I met new artists, met my idol, Valerie Hector, made new customers, even 2 online friends! Best of all my babies (jewelry, that it) all found new homes.
This first picture shows my set up on the first night. I have to thank my artist friend and fellow DC Craft Mafia, Michael of Arty4Ever for the banner design!

I created so many pieces for this show, most of which I didn't get a chance to even shoot but the designs are, hopefully etched in my brain so I might be able to redo the favorites.

As I mentioned, I met Valerie Hector and she was gracious to sign my book - I was such a ninny when I met her and forgot to take a photo of her and me so this signed book is the only evidence I have of meeting her! Also, I met 2 (!) long time online friends who my colleagues in Eclectic Jewelry Artisans. Anita of GypsyDesigns and Kira of StudioBijoux. The show was exhausting but a lot of fun!
