Getting Ready for a Show

This coming Saturday, July 30th, 2016 I'll be at my first local show of the year.
I've been trying to make a variety of new earrings from a fairly low price point up to my normal higher price point.

Making some more simple earrings with a minimal combination if Artisan components and building them up with slightly more and slightly more so hopefully I have something for everybody.
I'm even putting earwires straight on to some of my Copper Components for rock bottom choices.

Simple Wire Wrapped Textured Copper Hoops,
 I used Steel and Copper Twisted wire to give it a little added interest.

Some of my Painted Discs with Copper Wire wrapping.

Red Turquoise and Faceted Turquoise discs.

Painted Flower Ovals with tiny little matching Lampwork Beads.

More Painted Flower ovals with slightly larger Lampwork Beads.

I'll have lots more earrings to show you!

  1. Kristi, I wish I was in the neighborhood to visit the show and your booth. The earrings shown are gorgeous, each and every one of them. Your painted copper charms are divine (I hoard several pairs LOL) and your style is wonderful.
    Wishing you lots of fun and success at the show.

  2. Kristi, the pieces are stunning and I am sure that its going ot be a complete sell out at the show

  3. beautiful earrings.Good luck at the show.

  4. Your earrings are so gorgeous and distinctively yours! Hope the show goes well. Can't wait to see you!

  5. Gorgeous earrings Kristi. Good luck with your show <3

  6. I can just say "ditto" to all of the above, and point out what Linda said, "distinctively yours." Don't you love that? I could see these earrings almost anywhere and if I didn't know for certain, I'd sure be speculating if they were yours. I love them all! As for the "rock bottom" choices. . . . . you put a lot of time, heart and soul into your copper work. They are artisan simply with an ear wire. I struggle with that; some pieces you make, others make, are so "there" with nothing added. It is a challenge at that point for me to highlight them, rather than overpower them. As a customer at a show, I would buy two copper pieces, because I could. :) I trust you will do really well. <3

  7. Thanks so much to everybody for your wonderful comments!!! I appreciate and admire each of you so much!!! :)

  8. I hope your show was a success, you sure had a variety, love every single one, ♥
