off to Galveston

Not me, but some of my jewelry. Rhonda is heading for the Texas Art Educators Association conference this week. She and some other Denton artists have a sale table there, and she offered to see what she could do with some of my things.

I didn't get a picture of my display construction before I handed it off to her. I was pretty pleased with it. I used two layers of matte-board and some blue velvet to make a stiff velvet-covered board the size to fit in a display tray (7-3/4" x 14"). Some of my 8-gauge copper wire and a brass tube formed a sturdy easel. I made an 8" length of black oxidized copper chain, fastened at a slant across the board near the top. 10 hooks in the chain support neck-chains and bracelets, and half a dozen pairs of earrings go across the top. It gets lots of chain pretty well-displayed in a small space. I'll make a couple more before the DHS show in December.

I'm hardly going to make my fortune selling one pair of earrings a month at Oxide. Still, one pair beats no pairs. The blue and silver dragon-scale pair found a buyer at the Gallery Night last Saturday. Yay!
