My mom brought me some amazing earring findings and charms from Tokyo and I put them all together today. I love these earrings! I’m definitely keeping these for myself but I am going to find similar findings to make more! Thanks, Mom!





Washi + jewelry = $5 April 25, 2009

My old friend Hillary and I tried to sell our wares (washi paper eggs and jewelry) at a craft fair/flea market today. Never expect to sell anything handmade at an event that is marketed as both because no one will want to spend over $5 on anything. Really–$5 is the magic number. It was fun catching up, though, and I got a nice base of color on my arms. That color being red.

Today was the best experience so far as to selling my jewelry to the public! Even though I only sold 4 items (plus the 2 that my parents bought after it was over) it was a fun atmosphere, outside, beautiful weather, and friendly fellow vendors. Can’t wait until next month!


I have a regular gig! May 16, 2008

My local Whole Foods is hosting a “Local Market” on the first Sunday of the month from June-October, and they invited me to participate! The first market will be on June 1 and it looks like it will be a lot of fun:

* The following vendors will have an 8’ table, table cloth, and space under the big tent provided by Whole Foods Market: Kelli Dietrich, From the Garden, Jlove Jewlery, Alice Dougherty, Occasions to Savor, Simple Bangles, Creole Soul, Poo Paw, Naturally Neil, Helen’s Pure Foods, Nature’s Inspirations, Farview Farm, Bucks County Preserves, Blackstone Studio, The Natural Baker, and Abington Art Center.

* We will have a grand opening ceremony at the first market (June 1st at 10am) with a bread breaking ceremony. Special guest, State Representative Josh Shapiro, will be here to help cut the 5’ loaf of French bread.

* There will be live music, kids activities, and grilling at each market.
