Pendants made from Relish Spoons

I don't ever remember my mother or either of my grandmothers having relish spoons. I was thrilled when I found these beauties. The idea is that the juice falls through the dugouts in the spoon and it so it doesn't get your into the rest of your food. They are simply too pretty to use for only that, they look much better as a necklace. So the hunt is on, I'm hoping to fine many more of these!

Tussie Mussie's

These are the lapel pins I'm making from the vintage knife handles, they look wonderful on a blazer or a denim jacket or a tux for a wedding. Put a fresh flower in when they are in bloom or a piece of holly during the winter months. I love recycling or I should say upcycling old vintage silverware into wearable art. Back in the day these were called Tussie Mussie's. The gentleman with the pin on his tux was dressed for Victorian Days in Belvidere. It is held every September and the entire town comes out in full Victorian dress. Plus they hold an Antique Car Show and Victorian House Tours. It's quite the celebration!

Yesterday was the Summit Fine Art's and Craft's Show. The promoter and her crew were wonderful. They were there for your every need and did an incredible amount of advertising. There was great music and tons of people came out and they were buying. The great day came to a screeching halt when at four o'clock it got really dark and started pouring. I look forward to JC's next festival!

Shows, Shows and more Shows!

Last Sunday was a show in Leonia, small show put on by the Craftique people, they are so good at what they do. I sold lots of rings so I've been working on a new batch this week. They are so hard to bend into such a small circumference but after I shine them up, I love them. This Saturday I am at Harmony school in Middletown from 10 to 3. If you're in the area stop by and say hi.

Olde Lafayette Village sponsored a two day show this past weekend, the weather was perfect and there was a really nice array of fine arts and crafts. I met some wonderful people and had some of my faithful clients show up to purchase my new designs. It was a very enjoyable show. I am looking forward to the Leonia show next weekend, Hope to see you there!

Happy 2011

Well a new year is upon us and it's time to start working after my week of lounging around and reading, I loved it! I sprained my wrist a few weeks ago and haven't been able to work on spoon bracelets. I will start again tomorrow and hope it doesn't bother me. My new show list is here, just starting to sign up. Keep checking, I'll be adding shows weekly!
