Spring is here, and even though they are predicting a snow storm tomorrow night, I can feel the change in the air. It is a welcome change after a very difficult winter here in Western Massachusetts. Sheryl and I are gearing up for what is hopefully a busy craft show season. We have two shows in April and are looking forward to getting back in gear.
We make lots of great plans each winter to work together on creating new designs, but if truth be told, both of us need a break and once our shows are over we tend to meet less often. It is important that our rhythms match well and that our need for breaks happen at the same time. During the winter we each create on our own, meeting about once a week. Once we are back to meeting two or three times a week, we are so happy to be back into our routine, because working together is more enjoyable and we spark creativity in each other which is fun.
We seem to be into freshwater pearls and have created some beautiful pieces.
There is something about freshwater pearls - I love the richness in the colors, and the unique shapes that when combined together can suit both casual and dressy attire. We've come a long way since the single strand of white pearls my mother used to wear.
Our show dates will soon be up on the website - if you can, please drop by and say hello!
