Anthropologie Does it Again!

Can you believe this NYC Anthropologie window display is made with empty milk jugs? The display artists at these stores are amazing to me!  So my goal for 2010 is (drum roll, please) ...... to somehow become involved in the window displays at my local Anthro store! (without leaving my current dream job, though). I'll keep you posted!

ETSY Staff Showcasing my Earrings!

I recently opened a shop on ETSY.com and I'm so excited that the ETSY staff has chosen this pair of earrings to showcase in their under $50 Gift Guide section! Yippee! (Update... earrings have sold!)

If you aren't yet familiar with ETSY- it's a great way to shop with talented artists from across the globe. You'll find everything from upcoming designer clothing to collage and mixed media sculpture. I've purchased several items myself.... here's a sampling of some of my favorite purchases:


If you shop on ETSY, I'd love to see what you've bought!
Just post a link in the comment section....

I am forever tweeking the design of my jewelry booth. But I am lucky in that I find display to be as rewarding as creating the jewelry itself. When you think about it, show artists have a mere matter of seconds to capture the attention of walkers-by. Your set up needs to compliment and enhance your style- whatever that may be. It can be a fine line between showcasing your work and overwhelming it. When people begin commenting on the display instead of my work... it's time to go back to the drawing board!

The set up shown here was recently used for the indoor Madison Museum of Contemporary Art's Holiday Show.

Holiday Window Display

Recently I had the pleasure of helping put together the front holiday window of our local Anthropologie store.

This window was great fun!!!  Would you believe these giant snow balls are made with chicken wire and strips of white garbage bags? Low voltage LCD lights are used to illuminate them from the inside. While giant paper tissue balls fill in the gaps.

More Cool Display....

Another great display!

Here are funky industrial lights hanging from an old board with orange haphazard extension cords catching your eye.
