Itâ€™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 me at Aylaâ€™s Originals Highland Park Bead Bazaar so I could make two custom bangles for my friends.
This set of portraits has special meaning to the recipients.
They are now traversing the world.
A transgender symbol adorns a proud owner.
I wonder if I will see these pendants around town or if they flew elsewhere.
Some of my favorite Angels got adopted.
Frosties werenâ€™t as popular due to the lack of snow, but some found new homes and â€œWhat Linus Saidâ€ sold twice this year. Destinations include Mexico and Portland, Oregon.
Earrings were admired, one pair converted to clip-ons at the Bucktown Holiday ArtShow, and â€˜writeâ€™ actually went to a novelist.
Musical pendants continue to be bestsellers.
My Delft Blue set stayed in the family.
Two of these sets will be auctioned off in Houston on New Yearâ€™s Eve.
Thank you all for your support this season. Itâ€™s been very affirming to make these goodies and know that they are meaningful to you.
I have re-opened Etsy, and The Collage Cafe has my bangles and pendants in Evanston. Moon Art Gallery will get an inventory update in January. I’m exploring additional venues, and will keep you posted on upcoming fairs and pop-ups.
