Trunk Show


About this design:

I wore this piece when I got my haircut last weekend. Everyone oohed and aaah-ed from the shampoo "girl" right up to the owner, who asked if I'd like to do a Trunk Show. Hell yeah! All set for next weekend!

Components:

Tourmaline and apatite nuggets from LB, ss bail, pewter spacers, seed beads

    Thank you Nancy!
    I’m a little nervous because we haven’t agreed on his percentage. For a home show the hostess gets 15% credit towards purchases.
    Any thoughts anyone?

    Yes, Lynn, this is on my etsy page! You are so observant. I’m curious to see if one of the employees at the salon snatches it up before it event hits the display. ;)
