If anyone will be at any of these events, please come say hi to me! If you mention my blog, I’ll have a special piece reserved just for you as a special thank you for your support!
One of the most popular pieces that sold at the convention was my original design – a wrap necklace.
I take memory wire and adorn it with gorgeous seed beads. Then I wire-wrap a focal stone. The finishing touch is adding chains with either crystals and/or charms, which hang down to the shoulders.
This is my Tree of Life wrap necklace.
This is the Goddess Spiral Wrap. The design concept is the same, however, I played with the idea of having two different lengths of chain.
The necklace was made with chains of equal lengths, however, I decided to wrap one side of the chain around a little more to see how it would appear with asymmetry.
All of the necklaces can be worn symmetrically or asymmetrically. I think asymmetrical is a bit edgy.
This is my Keys wrap. I wrapped Swarovski red crystals to silver skeleton keys – this was a convention favorite!
I then started playing around with wrap bracelets.
I used the same keys here as I did in the necklace, but I wrapped glass pearls on them to complement the gorgeous glass pearls in the wrap.
So now that I know what the attendees of the conventions are looking for, I know what work is cut out for me in terms of designing more pieces and having adequate inventory to cover all of these amazing upcoming events!
I set up a Go Fund Me page so that I can hopefully attract donations to cover all of the travel and supply expenses I’m going to need in order to attend these conventions and make them a success.
The link to my go fund me page is below. All donations will receive a gift certificate to purchase jewelry in my etsy shop: http://www.eldwenne.etsy.com – it’s a win/win!
Thank you all for your amazing support and I look forward to seeing you guys at the conventions!
This is the start of an incredible journey and I look forward to taking you all with me!
