I’ll again be participating in the Elko, Nevada, Downtown Business Association’s Art Walk from 3-6 p.m. Saturday, May. 11, 2013. I’ll be at the Western Folklife Center demonstrating my beaded jewelry making techniques. Other local artists will be working on and selling their creations at various downtown businesses during this event, so it will be fun and interesting to attend.
At last year’s Art Walk, I did an encaustic painting demo at Mismash ‘N’ Muddle. This year, I will be making and selling my beaded earrings, though I also will have available some of my beautiful turquoise and ceramic beaded horse head necklaces shown above. Most of my earrings are reasonably priced at $8-$12/pair.
I will be bringing a large selection of glass beads to work with that day, so I will be able to quickly make sets of earrings for you while you wait and watch. You choose the beads, and presto! I turn them into earrings with sterling silver or gold-plated ear wires or clip-on fasteners, your choice.
If you’ve ever wanted to have a pair of earrings to match a certain outfit, bring or wear the outfit to the event, and I’ll make earrings to match.
The jewelry that I usually have on sale at the Elko Chamber of Commerce Gift Shop will be available for purchase at my table, plus any other earrings I make during the event.
Hope to see you there, but if you miss it, remember that you always can find my jewelry at the Chamber Gift Shop or on my website.
