Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

     Somewhere along the line (right here on AFI!) I learned that jury images need to show a constistency. The pieces need to look like they are all from the same DNA, so to speak. Ever since hearing that, I have had a concern that my jury images are too dissimilar, and that someday I should make them more cohesive. 

So this month, “someday” arrived. I designed and built new statement pieces that are similar to another jury image. In the process of designing, I gave thought to my design and thought processes. Then I started to wonder if anyone else has a similar process. Here’s mine:

It would be very interesting to hear from the rest of you, as to your creative process, as well as thought process when it comes to making a show piece. Please share!

I really enjoyed reading about your process, Sandy, but what was the outcome?  Did you win an award?  Love your work!  I haven't been in that situation yet but it gives me something to think about and strive for...thanks.

Thanks for posting about your process. It's always helpful to hear how other people make decisions about the pieces they create. The necklace came out beautiful! Love the earrings also! A perfect match.

The show with the potential award is two weeks from now. I will post the outcome when it’s over. Thanks for your kind words!
