Hello...I'm a newbie to the forum... I've been doing shows now for about 3 years, and the jury process is still frustrating and confusing to me. And if that isn't a wide open subject for discussion,…Continue

Hi Dawn.  I hope you don't mind me asking but I was invited to Banner Elk and I just wanted to know if you were still enthused about the show.  I'm looking for something a bit closer to home this summer.  Any info you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Happy birthday Dawn. I hope you have a great year.

Hi there. It was great meeting you today.
So I walk into Gallery Morada and immediately tell Laurie (the gallery owner) that I have a new jeweler for her. I pull out your card and she pulls out the same one and mentioned that she thought your work was the best at the festival. I mentioned to her that you were interested in getting into more galleries. If you stop by her gallery, you will enjoy the wonderful work she has displayed. Hope you had a good show. (and I am still thinking about that ring.)

Yes, I will be there.    I will definitely stop by and say hi.  Maybe you will explain lost wax to me because I certainly don't understand it!!  Have you done this show before?

Hi Dawn,noticed  on your website you mentioned the Islamorada festival this weekend.  Have you made it off the wait list?  Don't know about sales but the  atmosphere of the festival is wonderful.  Very laid back and relaxed.  And, the smoked fish dip contest is wonderful, if you like smoked fish dip!!
