|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!
