The Laguna Beach gallery sold this necklace last week. I’m really excited at the prospects of the future with this gallery. It’s called Orange County Creatives and I’ve linked a Google Map to it for any locals who would like to check it out. The owners are also excited about their future because they’ve only been open since the beginning of November and it’s been going well so far. They’ve joined the Art Walk Association so they’ll be getting a trolley stop at the January 2nd and all future Art Walks. Tourist and wedding season should spice things up a bit as they get in contact with the surrounding hotel concierges.
I’m really looking forward to where this venture ends up going. One of the owners told me the straight up chainmaille and the chainmaille with my favorite glass beads get the most attention. That makes me happy and scratches the itch to do nothing but make beautiful chains. Now that we have a TV, I just need to find a good lap tray to do just that.
I also sold these earrings while I was there on Saturday doing a live artist demo. A lovely Beaumont couple was spending the day on the coast and the wife was very happy to know I knew where Beaumont is. These earrings are certainly my favorite pair ever. It’s a perfect blend of 3 metals and 3 different sizes of barrels. Perfect for everyday wear, dressing up and dressing down. I need to make a whole bunch more of these just to keep them in stock. And keep a pair for myself.
Allison and I got a ton of stuff done last week, so I can somewhat enjoy the holidays that are coming up. I have a few projects to work on and get to her soonish, but it’s nice to cross off most of the things on the to-do list. 2014 is going to be an exciting year and I hope I can keep up with it all. I haven’t checked in on XCVI, but I’ll wait until after Christmas. Hopefully all goes well. I need to start cranking out more jewelry to restock when needed. Yup, lots to do and lots to be thankful for. I’ll do a yearly recap before New Years.
