The weekend just gone

The opening night at The Kings School Art Show 2012 and the table with most of my 'main' pieces
 My friend Neva Brown and "slave" for the weekend. If you look closely you will see the face of Neva just peaking over the top of the display. (Neva was towards the end of the line when they handed out 'tall' genes, although she assures me she was once tall). Neva is wearing her own creation "The Mayoress"
I had two tables at the show and a glass display case. I am told things behind doors often don't sell. 


Here we are on Sunday, keen to be there, but starting to lack in energy. We were both on our feet so much. 


It is funny how things happen. 
Not one sale on Sunday morning. This was just before I went out to buy some lunch. I returned with food, Neva had sold 3 pieces. From that moment on we did not stop and the last sale was 35 minutes after close. I have HUGE gratitude to Neva for her unrelenting support.

My Lotus necklace sold to the wearer, Deidre, who was most gracious in allowing pics. The necklace went perfectly with what she was wearing and she looks so happy in it.


Julia wearing my BOTB piece 'Davinia'.   As soon as Julia put this necklace on I immediately asked if I could photograph her and use the image. She was most happy to oblige and I am grateful to her.
