the last of the last

The final official count is 60. Last night I spent approximately 2 hours wire-wrapping boxes. I know it's probably complete overkill to have 60 boxes ready to go, but I figured I won't have to do that for awhile this way.

I have various ceramic bowls and glass vases (aka small glass yogurt containers I stole from France. Ok, I stole them from a hotel in said country, but doesn't that sound funnier? I stole yogurt containers from France.) that need to be gathered and flowers to be purchased.

My bags need to be stuffed with tissue paper. I should probably go buy some snacks and a lot of water.

I'm going to do a mock set up this evening, but really it will be an adventure to set up at the fair, as my booth partner is bringing all of the tables and I have no idea what the arrangement will be. Suspense!

Lastly, I keep half-forgetting about my signage. Thankfully the boyfriend has offered to put one together for me so I can get it printed tonight. Other than that, I need to print off things for monies, sales tax, and make a tiny sign for the pile of knotted stacking rings.

I think I may even have time to ride tonight!

Anyway, here are the last 4 to be completed. At least the jewelry part is finished!


Aren't these little vintage glass cabs the best? Bright red deer yes please?

Concord Necklace

I almost nearly stamped "stick tight" on the back of this, because it is a stichtite cabochon. And I can't stop typing out STICK.TIGHT.

This cabochon is not quite so dark but I didn't have much light to work with. It reminds me of concord grapes and sticky grape jelly. It's really something you have to put on. It's like a million times better when it's on. I didn't expect to like it as much as I do. I keep looking at it sideways and imagining it on my finger. Maybe next time.
Chichen Itza earrings
These earrings turned out so perfectly I don't really know what to say, other than they reminded me of driving through rural Mexico after seeing the pyramid and ruins at Chichen Itza.
