This weekend I will be at the Fairy Lake Artisans Festival in Newmarket. The show runs from 10:00 – 5:00 on Saturday and Sunday. There will be lots of artisans there with a large variety of handmade and artisan designed products and handmade foods.
The festival is held in the lovely Wesley Brooks Conservation Area in the heart of town. It’s a lovely setting with picnic areas and play park for the little ones. Come out for an enjoyable family outing and shopping.
Here’s a sample of one of the products I’ll be bringing. Check out the last few postings. I’ll have those items there too.
|Coral Squiggles Necklace (Sold)|
The focal is a square porcelain charm by Marsha Neal, with a coral squiggle pattern, and is glazed in a combination of blue, gold and brown glazes. The focal pendant is attached with waxed cotton cords in copper and dark green, sitting immediately below 2 ceramic beads by Gaea Cannaday, glazed in complementary colours. Strung along the waxed cord is a ceramic charm with a seashell, also by Gaea, in brown and clear glazes. Riverstone chips and freshwater pearls dyed deep coffee help call out the Tide Pools interpretation of the necklace, as does the antiqued brass starflower toggle that finishes the necklace.
I have been really enjoying a more organic, somewhat rustic bohemian approach to my designs lately and would be interested in hearing your opinions on this style. Do let me know.
