Here's a ring I sold in Saratoga. The centerpiece is a unique color of pink and gold glass on this ring. It was pretty cool. I am pretty bummed I havn't made anymore since this one. I really should have had some for June, but maybe by Oakland. It is hard to set aside a big block of time, and relax enough to focus on my silver work. I have mainly been doing glass for so long, that the silver is really a task master, and I feel too pressured to deal with the learning curve right now. Maybe later in June.

Los Altos Rotary Fine Art Show

Los Altos is this weekend, and they are predicting thunderstorms on Sunday. This could all change of course, so let's hold a postive thought. For some reason, this show always has the most unpredictable weather. It has been one of the hottest, one of the coldest, and one of the wettest I have done. I guess if we get one good day I will be happy.

My husband does this show as well, so he will be next to me with his paintings.

We are in the first half of the show, near the Sherman Street end (south end of Lincoln Park) along the freeway side. My booth number is 126. I used to be at the other end of the show, but I moved into the center. So if you are confused there is good reason. I hate to move my spot, but it helps for my husband and I to be next to each other for packing and unpacking the van. Of course this way I can also keep an eye on him, and he will watch my booth for me...for about a minute!

Sacramento Art Fiesta

I'll be in Sacramento the first weekend of June, Saturday and Sunday June 4 & 5 for the annual Kiwanis Art Fiesta. This show is at the Town and Country Shopping Center at Fulton and Marconi. There is a Trader Joes there, a Noah's Bagel, a Jamba Juice and a whole lot more that I can't remember.
The booths are scattered all around the center on the sidewalks, and it can be a bit of a maze. I am in booth 585, in "Canopy Row", which is the only row of white tents behind the Mexican Restaurant there. I can't of course remember the name of the restaurant, and I hope it is still there. If you stood in front of the grocery store there you can see the booths. They are sort of hidden behind one of the buildings.
I will have a "Show Special" here as well, courtesy of the Kiwanis. They, unlike many show promoters, do not charge a commission on sales made from the show, so I always extend some kind of special to my customers because of this. It is early Sunday morning on Memorial Day weekend right now, so my brain hasn't come up with a special just yet. However, it will be available only to my newsletter recipients, so if you aren't getting my newsletter right now, click on the link above here and sign yourself up!!

About Me

I love the stones and pearls, and the magic that happens when I combine them, and then again combined with the glass I make. You can find me at an Art show somewhere in Northern California most weekends during the spring and summer. Email me at FUNGIRLSJEWELRY@Gmail.com if you like.
