2 more days...

...Until Crafty Bastards!
I've been designing and making like mad for the last 2 weeks. Completely new designs.... and some oldies but goodies. If you have any special requests let me know by Friday and I'll have it ready for you at the show.

Quick Sneak Peak:
I've had some fossil shark teeth custom designed and gold dipped to make these edgy neat necklaces on A row of fossil shark teeth on an elegant 14k G.F. chain or a single fossil shark tooth on a mix of oxidized sterling silver with 14k G.F. chain mingled with larger links.

SIGNATURE PIECES - birds , monkeys... and the "fox and the crow"- i haven't made this one since my first crafty bastards 3 years ago and I don't know why. I love Aesop's Fables.

Most of my items at shows are discounted up to 20% from my online prices . So if you want to get a deal try to come out to these fun events.

CROSS YOUR FINGERS - that it will not rain Saturday!

That's it... make sure you come out and enjoy the break dancing, all the cool hand made swag (possible ;) christmas gifts), food and craft making activities.

This Saturday, October 3, in Adams Morgan- 10am - 5pm.

Just wanted to remind everyone to come out to the cute little area of Baltimore- Hampden for...

SEPTEMBER 12th, 11 AM-7 PM , W. 36th St, Baltimore, MD
I'll have a small space there with jewelry, onsies and paper goods. Most of my items at shows are normally 10% to 20% less than my online prices... so shows are a good place for scoring some deals on gifts. Not to mention getting to visit a new area of town and meeting and seeing new people and vendors.

Hampdenfest promises to be a fun time with live music, games for kids, food and shopping!
