antilles school holiday bazaar

special thanks to Rory from Texas, my first customer!

setting up at my son's school's annual holiday bazaar for the first time was an intriguing experience.  my dear friend jena and i took the barge over to st thomas and sold our studio jewelry together to a very small but appreciative crowd.  my son xavier's copper and silver forged metalwork was a hit.  i was modeling a pair of his earrings and they were purchased right out of my ears!  i'd been working on a new form of metalwork called fold forming and most of those earrings sold.  steel pan music, kids selling $1.00 candy grams, cake walks, and end-of-the-day 50 cent cupcakes--it doesn't get any better for my first public venue!
