I made my jewelry debut in Des Moines this past weekend with a trunk show at From Our Hands Gallery. It was at the same time the East Village was having their annual fundraiser Vino in the Village wine walk. I started on Friday night and that was a bust so I was a bit apprehensive about Saturday, but all went well. The place was packed and people seemed very receptive of my work. I completely sold out of round Kinetic earrings and my new Mod Circles single hoops. The owner, Ann Harmon, made a nice purchase of pieces to have my work in the gallery.
So while I didn’t like the 6 hour trip, having a good show and spending time with Ralph, Blair, Lydia and Julia made everything great. Next up: party plans for my big 4-0!
