My wife and I will be presenting her latest collection fo art jewelry at Gar-Field Senior High School Spring Craft Show on Saturday, March 16, 2013. The event opens at 9AM and is located on Smoketown Rd. in Woodbridge, Virginia. It is very near to Potomac Mills shopping mall. Marie Antoinette has been hard at work through the winter getting ready for this specific event and has created a whole new line of necklaces that are unlink anthing she has done before. Beautiful sea glass, wire wrapped pendants and even bookmarks are just a few of her latest collection of art jewerly.
We hope to see you there!
My wife has been busy through the winter preparing for our Spring craft shows with new offerings of sea glass jewelry and wire-wrapped jewelry. Today however, I wanted to show you something else she has been working on; bezel pendants.
It started when Marie Antoinette was commissioned to make a new necklace. The customer wanted a necklace made from grey freshwater pearls but when it was completed, there were still many beads leftover. Marie Antoinette gathered them up and placed them into a bezel pendant. Our client loved it so Marie decided to make a few more with other types of semi-precious stones.

It’s coming! At long last Marie Antoinette is going to start making sea glass jewelry. She, my son and I have been picking it up off a stone beach in Corsica for many years; building up quite a collection. Marie Antoinette has just started working the art of wire wrapping and once combined with the sea glass; well, each piece will surely be unique and a one-of-a-kind piece of artisan jewelry. Each piece of sea glass is unique. I’m really looking forward to what she comes up with. Below are a couple of photos I took of a necklace she just completed.

We literally walked in the day of the show and filled out an application at the door; boy were we lucky to get in. This was a great craft show and there was a lot of traffic throughout the day.
We had a spot that appeared to us to be in the farthest corner in the back behind everything but it was anything but that! I think we had just as much traffic come by as anyone else did.
A couple of customers just loved Marie Antoinette’s semi-precious stone bead necklaces but wanted to know if their selection could be altered a little; no problem! Marie Antoinette made a couple of changes and each of the customers necklaces and they were happy as can be. We always offer the option of making a piece of jewelry longer or shorter or if within reason, other alterations that make each piece a one of a kind treasure.
The Brooke Point High School Dance Team Craft Show was a great event and we’ve already reserved our space for next year.
