I was really impressed by the fashion of many of the fair-goers. I saw so many innovative jewelry pieces being worn- I got all sorts of new ideas.
My setup was small, so I tried to maximize space by making some vertical displays. One of them was an Xray I found on the ground in Chinatown, which I framed and then displayed necklaces over. It was a hit with the doctor in the crowd, who let me know that it was displayed backwards. The heart should be on the viewers’ right side. Good to know!
It was interesting to see what people were attracted to on the table. The steel wool definitely captivated people and drew them in to handle the pieces.
