|Our table yesterday|
|Fold flat necklace display with hand turned knobs|
|Bangle and Ring Cones|
|One of the display trees|
This is a combination of 3 different woods, beech top, walnut support and pine base. The lady who actually bought this could not stop raving about it and actually described it as a work of art, well I am just glad that she likes it, she had me put it to one side and told me not to sell it till she got back with some money. I think she will come back to me at some point for a taller version for hanging necklaces from.
So what did we take from today? Well we managed to hand out loads of cards and spoke to people about what we offer so hopefully this is the start of people knowing about us, Networking! such a brilliant word. It also gave us an opportunity to tell people that we can make items to their own specifications because today we had to pre-judge what people would like, I think we got the basics right but everybody is different and has different ideas, we just want to make their ideas a reality. So there you go that was our first bead fair and it definitely wont be our last.
Its week 15 over at 1stunique gifts and there are already lots of blogs listed for you to have a read at so please pop along and say hi to Wendy and take some time out to read what other crafters and artists have been up to this past week.
