Marshall Handmade Market Arts & Crafts Show

Peace, Fine Silver Pendant by Sacred Jewelry & Yoga DesignsI was finally able to take some pictures of my new silver jewelry designs I am bringing to the Marshall Handmade Market, which is happening this Saturday, November 20th, from 10 to 5, at the Marshal High Studios in Blannahasset (Blannerhasset?) Island, NC. This is a place I had never been to before. I went today to start setting up and was very inspired by all the studios there. The building is an old school that was renovated for this purpose, and the place is just beautiful. It is nested in the mountains and to get there you drive along the French Broad River. It feels so peaceful and full of energy!

Many Blessings, Silver Pendant by Sacred Jewelry & Yoga DesignsAs I got into downtown Marshal I saw a sign that said something like, ”Marshall: the jewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains.“ I couldn’t agree more. The town is so quaint and gorgeous! There are cozy little cafés, galleries, beautiful architecture (such as the building that holds the Court House), and friendly people everywhere you go. Anyway, I hope you can make it tomorrow to the Arts & Crafts Show. There will be good music, good food, and about 30 artists selling their handmade creations.

Fundraiser Craft Show at Asheville’s Biltmore Mall

Wisdom Fox by Sacred Jewelry & Yoga DesignsI will be setting up shop with my handmade jewelry designs this Saturday, November 6th, from 10 to 8, and Sunday, November 7th, from 12 to 6, inside the Biltmore Mall in Asheville, NC, to support a fund raising event for the Fire Department. I know there will be a raffle, but I am not sure what else will be happening, other than many artists showing their creations for you to purchase. So if you happen to be in town, stop by and support the cause!

Ready for Art in Autumn Arts and Crafts Festival

Sacred Jewelry & Yoga Designs at Asheville Art in the Park

I have been dealing with tooth pain and dentists lately, which has prevented me from following my regular schedule and writing on my blogs, but things seem to be getting better now, and boy, am I grateful for that!

Not only because tooth pain is one of the worst things I’ve ever experienced (yes, much worse than childbirth), but also because I need to get all my jewelry and booth display ready for the Art in Autumn Arts & Crafts Festival this coming Saturday, September 18th, on Main Street in Weaverville, NC.

Paper Mache Sculpture by Sacred Jewelry & Yoga DesignsI like to look at my booth setting after every show and see if there is anything that can be improved, both in terms of how to display things as well as how to make it more efficient in terms of space, while keeping it practical and easier to transport, if at all possible. I usually have a booth partner, and that is a wonderful thing to have, but I still want to make things easier for both and to be able to manage on my own for shows I will be doing alone. Since I will be sharing the booth at the Art in Autumn Festival, space is of the essence, so this time I will be adding a couple gridwall panels to add vertical space to my side of the booth. I also made the papier mâché display on the photo shown here as a central piece (and hopefully attention drawer), so I want to make room for all this new stuff on the table without crowding it too much.

Ganesha Bronze Pendant by Sacred Jewelry & Yoga DesignsSome of the displays will now go on the vertical panels, leaving plenty of room for my other jewelry on the table, including fine silver pendants, sterling silver necklaces, and the new bronze jewelry designs (one is shown here as an example, with a handmade sandalwood necklace). I will be sure to post some new photos of the booth to show you what it looks like once it’s all set up.

You can view some of the new fine silver and bronze jewelry designs I already uploaded to the my Handmade Jewelry Shop, but if you happen to be in the area, come visit my booth even just to say hi, while you enjoy the changing colors of Fall in the mountains! The show goes from 10 to 5. Hope to see you there!
