What are the best things about art fairs
fun to meet folks, love when folks love my work;
Best show ever and why
Cain Park last year; director of The Cleveland Museum of Art retail shop loved my work and now I sell at the museum; my jewelry under glass!! One of the top two sellers!!
Worst show ever and why
No names; the talkers, shoppers, that go on and on about how unique your pieces are; spend 1/2 hour or so with you then thank you and leave.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
found on internet
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I'm very outgoing and love jiving with my customers at the shows. Poor folks dont have a chance of getting away from me till I tell them all about my work! Been told I have the gift of gab and actually customers enjoy my passion for my work. I always have very good shows.

Question for Howard Alan Jewelry Artists

Posted on May 5, 2014 at 5:15pm 14 Comments

Does anyone have a good idea for displaying heavier, bigger, metal jewelry for a HA show, since

he doesn't allow tables. I'm small and often travel alone. Was thinking of getting a styrofoam material

and cutting and fauxing it to look like marble, but cut it weird or something. Then I can do his FL

shows. Any comments would be greatly appreciated...and hey I'm a supporter now...actually have

listened to several do a magnificent job…
