Pop Up Gallery Refresh

Last week I did a Pop Up Gallery Refresh, and also moved shelves in the Downtown Evanston Gift Store. The Evanston Pop Up Gallery has changed ownership and is now Artem Pop Up Gallery. With utility work happening at Sherman Avenue, it looks like the rebranding is more dramatic than it actually is. I brought […]

Sparkly Sidewalk Sale tomorrow!

I’ve been sparkling up the studio this week to make more beaded pieces. Then I tagged all the newbies for the upcoming 3-day sale. Tomorrow I’ll be setting up in front of See Jane Sparkle for the Evanston Sidewalk Sale. I’ll have a table in front of 1312 Chicago Avenue from 10 am to 4 […]

Jigging at the Bead & Button Show

Two years ago I visited the Bead & Button Show for the first time and was overwhelmed. It is amazing how a convention center can have a block worth of bead booths with all of them offering different wares. The plethora of colors and sparkles resulted in me only buying a few strands, since I […]

A Merry Year-end

It’s been fun to create new goodies for my friends this season. Their inspiration has sparked my creativity, and I have more spin-offs in my head from the pendants and ornaments ordered for their loved ones or themselves. My chunky beaded bangle got a few admirers, and fortunately Dakota Beads had two more strands for […]

Summer Selfies

It’s time for some Summer Selfies as I process numerous photos from my August travels. The Yellow Agate Set visited a few stores this quarter while the pink flower wax and wire pendant was admired during NEW’s recent Meet & Munch. I paired it with infinity earrings. in May I wore various Mother’s Day Pendants […]

Maike’s Maraviglia out and about

I’ve been enjoying the weather and nature so much that promoting my jewelry has been backburnered a bit. But you’ll see me wear and can peruse fun pieces at NEW’s Crain’s Small Business Week Event on Wednesday. My Chakra Bangle and Twinsy Dancing Spirals are with me most often. The Morpho Butterfly wax and wire […]

Summer Jewelry on Etsy

Before my 3-day escape last week I did a photoshoot for Etsy. This week I loaded more inventory onto the shop, as I explore other venues to display and sell my work. Draw was inspired by the fabulous pencil handler Lauren Levato-Coyne. She taught me how to draw, and her friendship has drawn me into […]

Weekend Interlude

I took a little road trip this week to clear my head. It’s nice to do a re-set when home and internal changes are churning. The good news is that you get to call dibs on the pieces on Facebook through the weekend. Next week they’ll be up on Etsy for a wider audience to […]

Trunk Show Fun

Before the Independence Day festivities I had some fun at Aurora Rose Boutique. Mannequins were adorned with my pieces. I might play with a scarf pendant necklace in the Fall. I set up for my trunk show there with a pretty and whimsical view. Having extra surfaces to display my wares was nice, as well […]

Maraviglia of the Month

I teased my Facebook Fans with pieces last week that haven’t made their way onto Etsy, but are being uploaded now. I wore the pencil pendant out to NEW’s Women’s History Month event, along with Swirly earrings. Green-ish pieces were featured on two occasions. I wore the turquoise-wrapped spiral earrings and the Knitter’s Delight scarf […]
