Renegade Craft Fair a success!

My friend Vanessa Fatton and I shared a booth at the Brooklyn Renegade Craft Fair. Standing with us is the lovely and talented glass artist Jenine Bressner, visiting from Providence, Rhode Island.

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.

Sunday morning jewelry times! Made this one bright and early. I think I am going to do more of these. I really like the clear ones with the different heights.

Made this one today, it’s in the kiln as we speak!

I’m going to be sharing a booth at Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn, next Saturday and Sunday.

Brown translucent beads made with Northstar Nile boro. They’ve got subtle blue interference shades, really nice.

New glass jewelry and Etsy

I have started working on some new glass pendants these days, and I am selling them on Etsy. They are clear Pyrex pendants that are hollow and filled with steel wool. Most of them are quite small, from 5cm to 8cm in length. I have paired them together to create a cluster of multi-sized pendants as well as solo pendants.

I’ll be adding more to this blog as I make and photograph them. Here are two pieces that I have made. The first (cluster of three) has been sold but the second (solo pendant) is currently for sale on Etsy.

I made this next one last week and photographed it this weekend. I’m trying out just a single pendant.

You can find my latest pieces at Larkisadora on Etsy. I’m open to collaborations and commissions! If you’re interested, please contact me through Etsy.

I am now a member of Etsy! Sweet!

And I like it a lot so far. Even when I completely embarassed myself in the forums with my pure unadulterated ignorance people were nice! Really nice! and helpful…on a forum! No flaming! It was hard to fathom, really. So I’m hooked already. They’ve got my love.

In any case, my store is called Wyvern Glass and I am selling hand-blown Pyrex and steel jewelry, fresh from my new glass-blowing studio in Park Slope.

It’s been a long time coming but it seems like things are firming up for me here in the big A (I say, and then begin to frantically knock on wood with all my heart while looking to the gods for forgiveness for even considering future stability). I mean, after everything I’ve been through it’s about time.

I am only selling one piece at the moment. I meant to get more up but I just bought a digital camera (yeah!) and it took my about two days to actually get some OK shots of my jewelry. After that ordeal, my remaining free time only allotted for setting up my account and putting up that one necklace. Hopefully I’ll be able to add more during the week. I’ve got some cool stuff that I’m excited about!
