I'm still working on getting my Etsy shop restocked. It takes time and a lot of work. Each product for sale requires five photos and an indepth description for each listing. This may not sound hard, but for me it is very time consuming. I need to take at least eight to ten photos to get five that will look okay. And, no matter how good the photos come out, they still need editing and resizing before uploading to Etsy. Part of me dreads this task, but another part of me enjoys the challenge. Photography is an art all itself. As time goes on and I continue to learn more, I think my photos are improving. But, I still have so much more to learn. Here are some of my lastest photos. The Sea Glass earrings are listed in my shop. I'm still working on getting the others listed along with many new fine silver pendants and necklaces.
Well, it is no secret to those that know me know that I love Dolphins. So it is no wonder that they appear in my work from time to time. I seem to have a series of them evolving. But, they are all different. Here they all are together. You can also see them in my Etsy shop.
I have some photos to share from the Dauphin Island Art Trail we had October 15th at Dauphin island, Alabama. It was an interesting and fun event. Read all about it in this post. My booth was at the Sea Lab Estuarium. I thought it was a great fit because a lot of my jewelry is nautical or Island related. Thanks to all the folks who stopped by!
Here are some of my displays:
And we had some great booth mates!
Deb and Steve Garst of The Dog House Studio were our booth mates. Each business on the Island hosted just two venders each. So, it was just us two at the Estuarium. They are wonderful people and they both are fabulous artists. Hope to see you guys back for our next art show!
We couldn't have had better weather for this art show. The butterflies came and flew around us all day. Here a few shots of them, the entrance to the Estuarium, and the area where we were set up. I didn't get to take many pictures because we were actually very busy most of the day.
And here's a photo I took from the back of the Estuarium. An ultralite flew by with a flocks of birds that were flying with him!
More photos of the things around us that day. They say that if you're lucky enough to live on an Island, you're lucky enough. I think I'm even luckier...look at where I got to set up my booth! And they told us we could set it up anywhere in the area we wanted. Not to many artists get to do that at an art show.

All in all, it was a great event. I hope we get to do it again next year.
