As if this week couldn't get any busier, the Art Center held a postcard sale last night. I was going to be there anyway organizing some things for the event on Sunday. This was the first time they've tried a postcard sale, and I know it's already on the schedule for next year! They ask artists to bring in works no larger than the size of a postcard. The variety of mediums was fascinating! The works are a flat $20 each. At a specified time, members of the Art Center had first pick of what they wanted to purchase. After that, it was open to the general public. I am already planning what postcards I would want to make next year, since I didn't have time this year. Of course a beaded one, a wood burned one, maybe even an entire etched copper one! But here is what a purchased..... glass flower, dog oil painting, quilted flower, watercolor woman.I'm off to work to show off this new peacock necklace! The peacock and the large round faux stone piece are both from the new Blue Moon Beads Manor House collection. For the rest, I attached a vintage rhinestone button to one metal wheel, an old clip on earring to another wire wheel, another fancy button for one of the links, and an interesting filigree piece for the other link.
