So yesterday was my first experience at Art In The Park in Bellevue Kentucky. This was the tenth year for the show and there were 73 artists there. Thanks to Jodi Robinson for her encouragement to enter. There were a lot of jewelry booths. Some were great and some were ok. Apparently I was one of the great ones....because I won third place in the fine art division.
I was the woman with the enameled jewelry that the judges kept talking about. I was consistently the busiest booth in the entire show and at times there were people waiting to get into my booth. And...people were not only telling my how much they liked my jewelry they were taking it home! I gained a whole new group of fans.
Here are some pictures of my booth
I love selling at these shows when someone picks up a piece and says "I have to have this!" And I heard that a lot yesterday. Here are some pictures of the things I had at the show.
Much of this did not make the trip back to my house! I want to thank Barbara Lewis of Painting with Fire for inspiring me to make the enameled and fold formed pieces. Now to get ready for my next show in October ...Art off Pike! Can't wait to see how that goes.....
