Come one, come all to the great June Rock Show at the Har Mar Mall in Roseville, MN! The hours are 10-6pm Saturday, and 12-5 Sunday. Har Mar Mall is located on the corner of Snelling & County Road B.
I have lots of new gem trees made, including this gorgeous Blue Aventurine with brown wire, mounted on a blue Azurite base. This is some of my best work yet, and I'm really excited to see how well the show goes! I have so many trees right now, you guys really need to help me out and take them home with you!
I am also working on some new tags. I found a couple of beautiful tree poems, and will be using one on the product cards. I think the other will be an option, because the message won't always fit the situation.
I have been invited to attend the Midtown Global Market Music Fest in Minneapolis July 13th. It will be held in conjunction with the Aquatennial. I'm really hoping this even goes great, and that I can get some space in the Global Market. Its been my goal for a little while, except I've never heard back when I've inquired about space. I'd love to find a permanent spot to have my work on sale, besides Etsy. I may try for the Farmers Market when things settle down a bit.
I have a new product in development- a Gemstone Lamp! We found a wire hanging lantern that will be converted to gemstones. I will post photos and more information as they become available! They're going to look phenomenal when they're done. This will hopefully lead to a new line of products for us. :-)
Right now I am clearancing out all the Tree of Life Hangings on Etsy. They've sold pretty well, but I think I'm going to keep them more of a custom order thing, where you can pick your gems. I'll still be keeping the Chakra Hanging as an option, as that's been my best seller!
Once the craziness of prepping for this weekend's show is over, I will get to work on my new website. We switched providers so that we could be "guaranteed" a stable and fast connection. I have plans to develop a beautiful site over on Wix. I love it here on Weebly, but they really need more options for layouts and add ins.
That's it for now! I am doing a major rain dance for this coming weekend, in hopes it skyrockets ou. I really look forward to seeing you at the show, I hope you stop by!
I'm going to keep this post brief, as my internet connection is about as fast as the Pony Express delivered postal mail across the country! It supposed to be "high speed" by the 20th, but I think I'll be getting a new provider so that I can continue my website work.
Anyways, I have lots of new gem trees that I made last week! I'll introduce them to you one by one, as well as include their Etsy link. These new guys are pretty amazing! I've played around with the form to make them really unique and twisty. Some are straight, but the straight ones have a thick trunk. I still have more to make before the big show in two weeks! But remember, I still have some wonderful older gem trees looking for their new homes! :-)
YES, I will be at the next Har Mar Mall Rock show! Its coming up this month, June 29-30th. Saturday's hours are 10-6pm and Sunday 12-5pm. I will have two tables this time, to spread out all the beautiful gem trees, gemstone jewelry, tree of life hangings and I believe some Amethyst rocks. I am working so hard to make this the best show yet!
