I've been blogged!

You may have noticed that late last night I added a new shop widget to this Cata-blog. I finally put some new, exclusive items into my SmashingDarling shop that you can see a peek of just the right here. Woke up this morning to find that Trisha Ginter, owner and designer at SmashingDarling had decided to use all of my pieces in her blog today!!

Guess I had better get some more things in there pronto!!
I'm having a bit of a dilemna though. Many sellers post their one-of-a-kind items in more than one place on the web. (Etsy,Mintd,SmashingDarling,ebay,RubyLane...etc!) There is some concern about things selling in two places at once. Pretty unlikely. But, does it diminish the uniqueness of an item to see it all over the web? What do you think?
In other news, it is my sister's birthday today!! Happy birthday Nicki!! I love you!

Subtle Circles Necklace


Wait...did you hear the fire alarm??
NO!!! You didn't and this is earth shattering news!!
I fired up my acetylene torch, made a bunch of stuff and DIDN'T burn the house down or injure anyone!
So I am freeeeeee to create at last! I made these copper rings and then attached a bunch of beautifully colored felt bunches to them with more copper wire.
This necklace is extra long and can be worn doubled up. See it in my etsy shop! Click the photo to be magically transported there.

Gallery Night, Providence RI

Deb Clemons, curator at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, just emailed me this flyer for the upcoming Eco-fashion show. Look!!! There is my "Fresh Produce" Necklace!!! How cool is that??

It joins three other necklaces that will take part in the event on August 16th in Providence.

The fashion show is part of a larger, city wide event called Gallery Night. Free shuttles transport patrons all around the city to see special exhibits in many of the town's galleries. Art is big in Providence, as RISD is considered the best art school in the country.
