Successful day at the show

The show was a lot of fun! I was the only jewelry vendor there so that was a bonus. Also a bonus: my booth was in front of a wall of windows and the light came through and hit those Swarovski crystals and even I was impressed! I have orders for 5 pieces and meetings set up with 4 additional brides to design their wedding party jewelry. It was a very successful show. It's rare that you'll actually get orders or bookings at the show itself. Many times, the brides get home and go through all their information and then take the time to browse your website before making a final decision. I was very pleased with the turnout. Now I'm at home, in yoga pants and a sweatshirt, because my legs and back are so sore!!! I could really use a foot massage too! Here are some pictures of the set up. And yes, I give away ring pops as favors!

Bridal Show Tomorrow

The 2008 Wedding Connection is tomorrow from 1 to 4:30pm. I'll be there with my jewelry. I do two shows a year in addition to maintaining my website. I'm looking forward to it! My dining room is a disaster right now because I lay everything out and then take pictures and label everything to make set up on the day of the show easier. I'll take pictures tomorrow at the show of the final product.

Article from Saint Louis Bride

The Spring/Summer 2008 issue of Saint Louis Bride features an article on bridesmaid dress trends, including accessories. Four of my pieces/collections were featured in the article. I must admit, it was pretty fun to see my name in print! The pictures are small, but anywhere you see jewelry in the spread, it's my work.
