This Friday, August 21 is my last day at The Block Northway’s Farmer’s Market. Thank you to everyone who has attended thus far. I do have hand sanitizer and alcohol wipes, as well as a UVC wand that can be scanned over any item you would like to try on. Your health and safety is my number one concern.
Also, please remember that you may order online and pick up at this event. Please check the box “Free Pick Up at Studio” and let me know that you’ll be picking up at the Block in the comment section. I will be sure to have your item(s) set aside and waiting for your arrival so that you can be as efficient as possible.
I also want to note that masks are required. I attended this event several times as a consumer prior to scheduling my dates and I feel safe at this establishment.
DATE: Friday, August 21
LOCATION: The Block Northway • McKnight Rd • Pgh, PA 15237
ENTRANCE: Near DSW Warehouse
Hope to see you there!
With shows cancelled, I only have two that are still scheduled in October. I had been preparing cases and getting new displays ready, so needless to say, I am disappointed in not being able to use them, as well as not being able to show you the new items I have in person.
I’m hoping that something miraculous happens and the events are able to happen safely. In the meantime, in case you missed the most recent newsletter, here are the coupon codes available.

I am almost finished with my new plexiglass cases. I just need to finish the edges and take the film off of them. Andy is building new tops to my cabinets to make sure the cases are secure and don’t slide around.
Arranging the displays has been somewhat of a challenge, but a work in progress as well.
In any case, (no pun intended) I will be ready for an event, should one actually happen this year. Fingers crossed.
Earring display prototype in plywood.
The new earring display design is coming along. The whole thing will be on a lazy-susan mechanism, so it will still swivel. The first photo is the prototype all in plywood. The second photo will have the same 3-Form resin panel as the one you have seen at my booth. This is the last of that material. The wires for the rack are also recycled from a previously installed closet maid system. I guess it does pay to keep some stuff! The end result will have plexi-glass doors for your protection from airborne germs. And also keep the earrings from falling off the rack on windy days — fingers crossed! I’m so happy and grateful that Andy is able and willing to make my display ideas come to life.
Check back for photos of the finished display!
I had a photo session today and new bracelets, earrings and rings will be listed soon! I have also added a choice of Fluorite or Angel Aura Quartz to the Meditation Sculptures.
ALSO scheduled is a bracelet sale scheduled for June 16-30, 2020… and more updates coming soon in a newsletter in progress!
I have experienced a slight delay in creating new products due to this extremely cute distraction! We unexpectedly adopted a new 1 yr old cat that came into my life at my mom’s house while visiting this past week. He was starving, but so lovable and friendly. I took him home and we got him to the vet on Friday. We discovered that he was not microchipped or neutered, so we took care of all his vet needs and he is now in my lap!
Many of you know that in March, our 18yr old cat, Slinky, passed away. I did not expect to get another cat so soon, but he stole my heart. And time! Meet Smoky.
Just an update on the covid-19 situation. I am open for business online and following the recommended CDC guidelines. Your safety is of the utmost importance to me, and I will take every precaution in getting your item(s) ready to ship.
If you have any questions on this matter, please feel free to reach out to me.
Welcome to my first ever blog! I thought this might be helpful in communicating covid-19 protocols, updates to the current situation, and other changes and adaptations I will be making. So please check back regularly for updates and other info. Thanks for reading!
