Early this morning, I did my FINAL POUR for this weekends art show, Art in the Vineyard at Frogpond Farms. Tito and I went through 12 cases of resin, poured roughly every 8-10 hours for 3 weeks and produced 65 pieces of jewellery for sale at the show. On top of that, Tito spent countless hours in our ‘studio’ (er, 8ft x 6ft den) cutting, shaping, soldering and filing copper and brass bezels.

Last night I started putting chains on all the pendants. It’s so amazing to see all that hard work come together! Tomorrow morning we will pack it all up (along with my wheel, of course) and head out to Niagara-On-The-Lake. The weather promises to be warm and sunny for Tito and I’s first show as a couple, can’t wait!

There are many things you have to do to prep for a show, and one of them is photography. Believe it or not, this is where I fell down. There simply wasn’t time. Instead I offer you a selection of our latest pieces, via instagram 🙂 We have bell flowers, cinquefoil, red clover, chives, wild geraniums, English lavender, pansies, columbines, chicory, trefoil and at least 10 more plant species that I don’t know the name of.
