In preparation for the holiday season, I have been making a lot of charms. My goal is 600 pieces, and I've reached the halfway point! I have made 300 charms!! (Ok, they aren't complete yet...but I have 300 charms in the works!) At one point, I had to take 2 days off from working with my hands, because they hurt from sculpting so much clay. (Don't worry, I had plenty of other things to do, like paint ornaments.)
I've been getting tons of questions about where these charms can be purchased. I will be taking most of them to the Renegade Craft Fair in New York, on November 15th & 16th. I'm really excited! It has been 6 years since my last craft fair, and this is a huge one. So I need to have a lot of product ready, and I need to work on decorating and merchandising my booth.
After Renegade, I will do a jewelry sale in my shop with any available charms, etc. My Etsy shop will also be stocked with ornaments, earrings, stickers and some fun stocking stuffers that I have been secretly working on!
Next, I will be at the Bust Craftacular in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I will be at the Craftacular on Saturday only, to make sure I can give my online sales the attention they will need at that time of year.
