Open House response was GREAT!-thank you!

December 12, 2007 | Filed under: Uncategorized

The response to my Christmas Open House and Sale was terrific!  Thank you to all who supported me and visited my home studio.  Thank you also to my friends and family who helped during this 3 day event.  Many many pieces of jewellery went to new homes.  I wondered if 3 days was too much time but it wasn’t and next year I will allot the same number to my Open House again.  I am also thinking of having a spring sale at my home studio.  I have several bookings for 2008 already so I will see how things go.

PAVLO POTTERY which is now located in Rockton is having a Christmas sale until Dec. 16th with 25% off all their pottery.  It is easy to get to from Dundas-just take #8 highway until you see the sign for Rockton.  The pottery is on the main street.  If you have been to the Rockton Fair then you know exactly where to go.  Pavlo and his wife Oksana make wonderful, colourful and functional pieces.  I purchased a large plate for cheese and an exquisite tile which had been decorated by Oksana in beautiful colours.   Pavlo Pottery is also part of the Beyond the Valley Studio Tour-coming up at the end of May.

I had an interesting phone call from a man who said that his wife wanted a pair of earrings to match a necklace that had been purchased for her at the Cactus Festival in 2006.  I remember that necklace very well and he was amazed that I did.  Custom work is something that I like to do and these projects are increasing in number.  I have done jewellery for several wedding parties which is a lot of fun for me.  It is often easier for the wedding group as pieces are made to match outfits.  I do have a fabulous selection of gemstones in a myriad of shapes and colours.

One woman told me that she wears the same black dress but gets a fabulous piece of jewellery to accessorize it which then gives it a brand new look.  Great Idea!
