Detroit Artist to Artist Sales Haul

This past Sunday was the┬áThe Detroit Artist Clearance & Artist-to-Artist Sales Event. I was able to stop by and boy was it awesome! It was a basically a garage sale style event for Artists, both to get rid of their old or damaged art and to sell their unused or partially used extra materials. I was interested in going because I thought it would be a good way to get some art materials at discounted prices. And I did! Here’s a picture of everything I left with, and I only spent $25!

Western Craft Show

 

I had my first craft show yesterday! I went to the Western Academic Craft Fair in Parma, MI. A friend of mine was nice enough to come with me and help me set up and sit with me through the day. It was really nice because that way we both also got to walk around the fair a bit. I was set up in the hallway which got a lot of traffic, because everyone had to walk through to get to the gym and cafeteria. However because I was at the beginning, a lot of people wanted to see everything before they bought anything, so I didn’t get much business until the end of the day when people started heading out. I did get a lot of compliments on my jewelry though which was nice. But I did make my money back and then a little more then that so overall I thought it was a good day. It was a big learning experience and I look forward to doing more in the future!

Crafting Helper

So this is a bit delayed, but a couple of weeks ago my Mom came to visit for the weekend and we went to work! She wanted to help me make some jewelry so I have enough stuff for my first craft/art show (Nov 14!!). One of my favorite pieces to make are the resin pendants. So I dug out my stamps and mica powders and we had a great time making the clay bases to these pendants. By the time she headed home there were over 50! Which is awesome. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been putting the resin on top and adhering the bails to the backs.

Check out some of the stuff we did below! This is only a sample of what we got done. But it was a blast hanging out with my Mom and making jewelry together!
