meeting artists. Falling in love with their work, learning their creative process, asking them how they make their work and just learning about all the ideas floating out there, waiting for someone to open that package.
The second best thing is making and having new friends around the state and the country and world. If we didn’t pack up the gallery and schlep the stuff all over creation then we wouldn’t meet as many very cool and interesting people.
And then there is the third perk: NEW JEWELRY!! I collect necklaces, earrings and sometimes bracelets. I mentioned Conny yesterday and her lovely Bigib Designs. Here is my first piece of hers that I brought home. It won’t be the last.
