I Love Pearls (A few more....)
Under the "better late than never" label, I managed to put all the final touches on my new show in Barrington yesterday (Thursday) that runs 10-1 to the end of October. Given how many pieces I ended up using to fill the big window and a display case, the paperwork, inventory and labels seemed to take a pretty long time. I don't always put labels on the pieces as I make them because I can always refer to the listings that I post in my shop online. And I wasn't sure what final pieces would be used in the display until I was actually putting it all together!
I'm happy with how things all finally came together, but wouldn't you know it, I forgot to grab my camera and tripod in order to document this installation project. I hope to circle back next Thursday though and document the installation then, so I can share it here.
At any rate, here are images of a few more of the new pearl bibs that are now on my Etsy site and that I've also included in the gallery exhibition. I'm delighted by the views and sales these pieces are getting since I started to post them in my Etsy shop a couple of weeks ago! I really love them, love to construct them, and look forward to going through the stash of top drilled pearls I've been collecting over the past year to see what more new designs I can come up with within this design, because I've got quite a good collection of different shapes, colors and sizes of pearls.
On another note, here at the WillOaks Campground, we are into our second to last weekend for 2011 and will soon count down our final week for this season. We have had a wonderful break in the weather--from cold and frosty to warm and balmy! I'm pretty sure this is our Indian Summer season and given the cold snap we just went through, it feels really wonderful and things are nice and busy here as the season winds down! I hope you all have a great weekend too!!
