Mt Dora Spring Show

Well, I'm back and recuperated from the weekend at the Mt Dora Spring Show in Mt Dora, FL.  It was a nice show and extremely well organized...the best I've seen yet.  Lots of people, although not as many as their fall show.  But, most of the people weren't buying jewelry.  Not just mine, but I think none of the jewelry artists did well.  And we got rained out around 2pm on Sunday.  I did meet some nice people, both visitors and other exhibitors, which is always good, and I was certainly happy with the sales I did make.

This is my last big show for the season, so I'm going to be dedicated toward making my bead soup party design.  I'm really looking forward to it!

Nice Comments from Amanda

My Blog Soup Party partner, Amanda, made some very nice comments on her blog--  She is a very talented artist herself!  I adore what she sent me and am especially pleased that she took the time to make the focal and other brass components herself.  I'm not sure how I'll use them yet, but I'm intrigued by the idea of combining the brass and copper in the same piece.  I really think I can do it so that it works!  I already have some ideas and plan to get started within the next couple of days.
