The joy of presenting my orginal designs..and having people appreciate my work enough to want to purchase it....and the opportunity to meet fellow artists with a simular passsion for what they do.
Best show ever and why
Too many great events over the years to be able to pick just one!
Worst show ever and why
Don't recall just one that was that bad.

What is one fun fact about yourself?
Never dreamed in my previous business careers that I could actually support my family making jewelry and doing art festivals.
It all has been a heck of a ride and I truely love the collective community of artists...and the connection to supportive customers/collectors.
