LEAVING for Paducah Thursday. I am very excited to go. I missed last year, and look forward to revisiting the neighborhood. It is such a great artsy fartsy area. AND that area of the world has always been one of my favorite, Paducah, KY; Nashville, TN; Bowling Green, Louisville, Lexington, KY. So I look forward to any time I get to visit. I go alone, which is nice. Though truthfully I could use help, but still quite nice to be on my own for a few days.
Here are a few things I am working on for the show. Post earrings made from copper.
I used a wig-jig to make the shapes, hammered them flat, soldered a post and loop, ordered ear backs, flame painted them & added various gems. I think they turned out lovely. we will see how they sell. Posts are an asked for item, but who knows if they will really sell. I did them out of copper to keep the price low. I will make them in sterling next time if I sell and this weekend.
