Awake early, I made a wirework bracelet with a few of the small pieces of seaglass I found yesterday. Going to wander down to beach again this morning to see if I can spot any more.
I had a request to make a pair of wirework red poppy earrings and while I was at it made a couple more pairs which, together with the poppy necklace I was also inspired to make, are available at Skyeworks. (They’ll also be added to my online shop in due course.)
Here I am
grinning manically smiling cheerfully on my stand at my first trade fair, the Scottish Spring Trade Fair at the SECC in Glasgow earlier this month. The LG on the stand number refers to “Launch Gallery, a special section for new exhibitors. Cards and earring-cards on the left; original painting in the middle; prints on the right; wirework, wearable art, and small originals on the shelves. As to why I chose orange as my “signature colour”; besides being a favourite colour and helping to make my stand stick out amidst the crowd, it’s also the complementary to all the blues in my seascapes.
Thanks to everyone for your support, encouragement, enthusiasm, and conversations ranging from the working with dripping paint to domains names after Scottish independence.
It’s a big weekend for me! I’m exhibiting for the first time at the Scottish Spring Trade Fair at the SECC in Glasgow. My brain feels like a checklist loop: paintings, samples, cards, pricelist, hooks, pen, stapler… but fingers crossed I’ve remembered everything. I’m offering cards and prints of my paintings, plus originals, wirework sculptures and accessories, and my Wearable Art.
