Im a Renegade

Cooler weather, here I come!  {I hope}

I have been frantically working over the last month, and past week specifically, to prepare for my first ever Renegade Handmade Festival in Chicago!  It is an renowned event celebrating its 9th year and I am lucky enough to have been selected along with some amazing designers!

For many, it will be the first time to see my fall 2011 collection, sliver, in person and also get a chance to snag some of my new and amazing rings, which I don’t sell online.

As many of you know, I started this little endeavor of mine at the local S Congress artist market, and I kind of feel like this is taking me back to my roots.   However, preparing for a show that is across the country is a whole other adventure!  Not only am I in the process of making around 500 pieces of jewelry, but I had to make new ultra-lightweight displays that would fit into a suitcase, custom fitted table cloths…. and I still have a ridiculously long list of things I havent event begun to make!  {Trying not to panic}

my new and amazingly lightweight displays

So, if you or any of your friends, family or other fail admirers are in the Chicago area, come say hi, bring me snacks, and buy some jewelry!  I will touch base with you all upon my return and recovery.
