My Favorite New Pieces!!

 I was working hard last week to get ready for my Christmas market in Okotoks. I made a lot of new pieces and good thing too, because the show was very busy and I did very well! This top piece was admired a lot but is still available. I will be listing it in my Etsy shop this week.
 This piece I had make a few days before, and it sold at the show! I love how this piece looked and I hope to make more with the same feel. How nice to see so many pieces sell.
I made this one the same day as the one above and it also sold at the market. It was one of the first pieces to go. So that tells me I am on to something and I should keep going in this direction!!
 This was not only inspired by all of Heather Powers wonderful nature themed jewelry, it also contains one of her wonderful Humblebeads. This one is still available and will also be listed this week. I hope you will visit my shop to see everything!
This new piece is also still available. It is made with a lovely bird gifted to me by the lovely Gardanne. She sent me a handful of beautiful pink enameled components to cheer me up during my fight with breast cancer. What a sweet thoughtful soul.
I love this one with my Spirited Earth Owl and Jubilee house bead. This one sold. It was admired by many! Another piece I may be revisiting since it did so well. I am really excited about the new pieces I made. They just "felt" good :)
Another one that sold really fast for me! I am really loving the feel this one evoked. Whimsy and nature combined. Might have to revisit this design as well, maybe in some purples and blues...

I have to say that this Market was my best Christmas market ever!! The girls that do the advertising for Market Square do a fantastic job and promote us to the point that we are starting to have a serious following! I have several repeat customers, including men buying for their wives, and this makes me smile! I even have a new shop that came and bought several pieces to sell and put in a large order for more! I couldn't be more thrilled!

Now for the rest of the week I will be trying to fill this order as well as another one for hooks. I will also be trying to heal from what seems to be the beginnings of pneumonia! All this and another round of Chemo scheduled for Friday! I think it's going to be a long week!

Thanks for coming by!
