To Market to Market

I am busy preparing for my first craft market of the year -
Crafty By Nature ------------------------------------------------>
being held at Shupp's Grove in Reinholds, PA. Its about half way between Lancaster and Reading, PA just off of route 222. The antique market opens at 6am and the craft market at 9am.

I'll have some new designs that will be available for the first time at the show. Wooden rings, mini (read: very affordable) pendants that could also serve as charms, rolodex style stretch bracelets, new necklace designs, new earrings...suffice to say lots of "new".

In addition, I've been taking some imagery (such as the stones and grass/flax designs) one step further by changing color, shape and findings. I really like the grass design. I like it better now that I am using it less literally. Its very experimental because I lay the blades of polymer grass over the background color, inbed them slightly and then cut circles. Yes, I realize, probably not the most efficient way of working with a material (I am TRYING to get myself into caning, really I am) but I so enjoy the asymmetrical results that this technique provides.


  1. Lovely, lovely, lovely.

    Love the dangles on the little hoops, LOVE the stone design no matter what the piece...

    And i'm loving your polka-dot rock looking experiment in your previous post.
