Though I already blabbed about it on the Facebook earlier this week,
I'm totally siked to announce that I'll have a table at the Fall 2011 edition of the UNDERGROUND ARTISAN'S MARKETPLACE! Totally blog-worthy news, right? Seriously!
The event will be held Saturday, October 29th at Schlow Library in State College, PA. This will be my very first time taking part in a handmade market, and I couldn't be more tickled to be included in such a fabulous group of local artisans and crafters and makers and artists and vintage connoisseurs. I am definitely looking forward to being a part of. The anticipation! The copious amount of work yet to be done! Ha!
For fun, above are a couple of pieces I made for myself this summer:
fun and bright, with emphasis on repurposing and revitalizing vintage bits and bobs. My favorite (though you can't tell from the artsy-fartsy photo) is the enameled and inlayed wasp, which I pried from a vintage brooch that I picked up in a Paris flea market for a song. The brooch was....a bit "much," but the wasp alone, perched on a square ring shank, is pretty delightful, if I do say so myself. It flits about on my fingers pretty darn often.
More soon! I've got to go get my hands dirty!
