"This is something my friends and I talk about a lot. Many people say do whats in your heart and your art will sell. Bullshit. I make jewelry and there are trends and price points. And then there is the show that is normally good and you get there…"

"I am a jewelry artist so I guarantee my work for as long as they have it. I do get repairs, someone will catch a prong or knock a stone loose. But I feel my warranty sells a lot of work and the repairs I make are a tiny percentage of…"

First show ever
Greensboro's farmers curb Market! My space looked like a jewelry yard sale!
What are the best things about art fairs
All the other Craft people!
Best show ever and why
A last minute day and a half show, some woman called out of the blue and needed to fill a couple of booths at an educational conference. You would have thought these women had never seen jewelry before. God bless them.
Worst show ever and why
This year at Nuse River Festival. My car broke down on the way there. (towing$) (repairs$) Had to take a fifty dollar cab ride to the thing $! left the top of my tent in the car! it was so hot I almost passed out! My jewelry was too hot to touch! Well it went downhill from there.

Thanks, Robin, for the compliment on my wraps. No, right now, I am buying all my fabric. Most of it is chanille, polyester/nylon blend, cotton or ultrasuede, and a little silk. I am about to embark on experimenting with dying fabric. At the Bayou City Art Festival this past weekend, a booth had some of the most beautiful shawls hand dyed. So now I'm inspired! Have a great Easter Sunday.

P.S. Love your work

Robin, I really like your work. There are a couple of pieces I am interested in. Do you have a website where I can see more of your work?

I just realized I hadn't heard back from you. I asked you about the fish bracelet but made the mistake of commenting on the picture directly. Let me know if you want me to ask all my questions again!!

Really like the photos of your work. Looks like we share a love of natural rough stones. And thanks again for the awareness on the trademark. Since part of my background is in ceramic sculpture, I had been thinking about getting a mark, and now I know a bit more about what and how I should go about it for the jewelry.

Hey new friend!  I know the feeling - there is never enough time to make all the jewelry pieces that we want, or try out new techniques.  Someday you will just have to set aside some time to try some etching - it is really fun to do.  I call it my doodle work - I draw all the designs on the metal by hand with Staedler luminace red markers - the work better than sharpies.  What is great is that if you don't like it you can just sand it off & draw again.  

Keep the peace.....

Hi Robin!

Love your posts and really love your work- you have great insights into the marketing portion of this lovely ride we call Artfairs!! I live in a rural State, so doing the Ag Fairs, which are plentiful here was a natural transition here. Next month is my transition month- my final outdoor show is October 13th. After that, it's all inside til Christmas. Then after that3 months of almost no shows except for my monthly Art Walk. I hope to expand into more of those! As each of my surrounding communities does them on different evenings (First Tuesdays, Third Thursdays, Final Fridays) it would be at least one per week! I Like the Art Walks because they specifically target people interested in  the Arts and hand crafts. And very community oriented!

Hope your season is going well- we are currently gearing up for fall winter shows- and the weather is definitely getting chillier!! Had some wild wind gusts at my outdoor show this weekend- the worst I have ever dealt with- about 70 mph, and I was right on the Bay. Had to close up early due to my tent having some damage, and jewelry being blown away! Off to the studio- time to work! Have a good week

Hi Robin,

I'd love to be friends and share about shows.  Where are you located and where do you do shows?  I love your photos!
