Show Prep Tips: My prep work has included filling out my inventory with a wide range of prices. This week I worked on a collection of simple pendants with my tiny charms. My girls both swiped their favorite ones, so that is a good sign. And they look so cute, perfect for teens or a more delicate, earthy girl.
Another thing I do when getting ready for a show is to pick a few designs and work it up in several colors/variations like the pendants on the right. Those feature feather pendants that I created, paired with ceramic beads from Earthenwood Studios (another Michigan girl!) and then the eggs are these awesome metal beads that I found that are shaped like eggs - score!
My goal for getting ready is to make twice the amount I actually want to sell. Next up will be earrings. Tons and tons of earrings - always favorites!

Shop Update: In my Etsy shop I have new cabochons. These are made for bead embroidery or you can wrap them in filigree. You could also glue findings on the back to create earrings and a brooch. Be sure to check out the sale section in my shop for some sweet deals.
I'm off tomorrow for a day with my family and meeting up with a few friends in my beloved hometown. I'm also checking out a few possible places for my fall retreat. I'm looking at mid-October for an Into the Woods inspired retreat. Details will be coming soon.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend with loved ones doing things that make you absolutely giddy!
