    Thanks! :)
    My jewelry business debuted this weekend, which is why I’ve been in self-imposed exile from LB for the past week – getting ready! Now I’m in let-down mode, but getting my energy back by picking!

    Beautiful pick, Karen! Love the soft color combo with the gold pieces! Congrats on your first jewelry party!!! So exciting!!! Was it a home party (yours) or did you go somewhere else?

    It was at my house – which is why I was so busy getting ready! 2 cats produce LOTS of dust/fur bunnies to chase around the hardwood floor, not to mention the general clutter I usually live with. :)

    I hear you! We don’t have cats, just one little dog. Unfortunately, we do have clutter. Hubby always says he keeps bumping into my beading stuff everywhere! LOL :-)

    YAY for you!!! How did it go – will you do this on a consistent basis now or was this a jumping off spot as you head into a more permanent venue?

    Love the pick – the vanilla FWPs seem, to my eye, to pull everything together!

    I didn’t have quite as good a turnout as I had hoped, but I didn’t give people as much notice as I should have. The ladies who did come were very impressed, though. They seemed a little overwhelmed with the variety. Everybody left with something and seemed happy, so I’ll count it as a success and learning experience. I think I’ll try another party in a month or so.
    By the way, you may have noticed I changed my picture. I’m thinking of using this photo on my business cards. What do you think?

    I really like your design. It would make a great business card.
    Love your pick; the rutillated qtz. is so pretty w/the brown flower agate and the hidden valley jasper. Makes me want them a lot!
    Glad to hear your show went well. I am also planning to take part in a show with some friends late this fall. You are right about the need to let people know in advance, so they can make plans to attend. We are planning to do a show w/emphasis on Christmas gifts, etc.
    My friends have done this before and say a holiday coming up can really increase sales. Good luck to us both!

    Congratulations, Karen on your first show! My sister and I are planning a home show for June. I’m hoping for good sales, but you never know. All we can do is put our best foot forward!

    Beautiful necklace! The photo will make a great business card.

    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    Perfect photo for your card! Really eyepopping color that makes you want to look!!! Love the necklace on it as well – should make everyone say “Can you make me one of those??? Pleaeaeaese!!!” Did you do any printed material prior to the party – like with your business name and a featured item – thinking about doing that for a show in Nov…Thoughts???

    I sent out postcards with a couple of pictures on the front, and I also sent email invitations with a full page of pictures (4). And just this afternoon I dropped off a handful of quick business cards with this photo at the bridal shop next door. I’m hoping to get some commissions for bridal party sets – I really love to put together jewelry based on a particular person’s color and style likes. :)

    Very cool ideas!! Bet you’re going to be overwhelmed (in a good way) with responses! Sounds like you’ve got a good plan working – you are an inspiration!!! :)

    Karen, you’ve got some great ideas! This is definitely a good time to hit those bridal areas — people love personalized jewelry for brides, bridesmaids, mothers, flower girls, well — you get the idea! Prom jewelry is very popular, too.

    LOVE the photo you are planning to use for your business cards!!! Great colors & contrast! Should work really well for you. Good Luck! :-)
