Stained glass necklaces

I have signed up for the "Artist's Studio Tour" in April. Artists open up their studios for two weekends and the public is welcomed to tour the studios. I will be selling several different types of necklaces and prints of my paintings. I should've spent spring break making new pieces but I spent the whole week working on the house. If I work two hours or so after work I should be able to have enough pieces for the tour.

One thing I am struggling with is finding a new supplier for chains. I havn't been very happy with the chains I've been using. Any suggestions?

The UVAs exhibit is still up, but this is the last week. I wish it could stay up forever, it is such a beautiful show, if I do say so myself. If you type in "Union de Viejas Artistas" into your search engine you will find several articles written about us.

Well, time to get ready for bed and prepare to face my students once again. Eleven more weeks until the end of the school year :)

Exhibit Last Night

We had our exhibit last night. We had a very good turn out and several of us sold some pieces. My jewelry also did very well, I sold several necklaces and picked up some orders. I was very impresssed by everyone's beautiful pieces, the caliber of work was of higher quality than last year. A total of 14 female members exhibited.

I made some "collaged" pieces using the faces of the UVAs and put them in famous images. They were a big hit at the exhibit as were our bra purses. We wore buttons that said "Ask me about my bra". ( You can see some of our bra purses in a previous blog.) If you're passing through El Paso, please stop by!
