Completed Custom piece and Upcoming Shows!

I will be vending at Rosslyn's Holiday Market in Arlington, VA December 5th and 6th.  It's a new show (only it's second year), but they have rented a large raw space and are bringing a design team in to transform it into a winter wonderland holiday marketplace.  Friday night, they are doing a lighting ceremony with holiday festivities.  Be sure to come out! 

The following day, I am participating in  the 17th Annual Women, Art & Shopping Holiday Market which is a fundraiser for the nonprofit group Alexandria Commission for Women.  The venue will be Alexandria's Charles Houston Center, 901 Wythe Street in Old Town, from 1:00 until 5 p.m. on Sunday December 7. The money raised supports Alexandria's domestic violence and sexual assault programs, the City's battered women's shelter, teen pregnancy prevention, and similar activities.
Refreshments are provided to all attendees and participants free of charge!  Come out, have some fun, and support a good cause!!


In other news, I have been designing some new pieces around geodes and druzy stones.  The first piece is below:




After seeing the design, I got a commission to create a similar necklace with an opal.  This piece has a common opal ( a LOT more wallet friendly) that I found - reminds me of the moon a bit.  It's pale peach and white.  I was very pleased how it turned out!
