Holiday Arts Tour

Petite Minx booth, Holiday Arts Tour 2009

Last weekend I exhibited my jewelry during Ruston, La.'s, annual Holiday Arts Tour. More than 50 artists showed their work from their studios and downtown. I sold my jewelry at a cute clothing boutique. This was one of my favorite table set ups ever. I layered an off-white vintage table cloth atop a pale blue cloth, and it really complimented everything beautifully. And see the little hand in the photo above? That's my prize find of the month.

Lots of people passed through the shop that weekend. Thanks to everyone who purchased from me. It's always nice to meet the people who appreciate my aesthetic and to learn what they like most. This year's Art Tour really validated me as a jewelry artist in a way that I haven't been in some time. It really gave me the gusto to persevere during a time when many artists, including myself, have had fewer sales than in times past.

As I have been absent from blogging lately, I am late in telling you all about the sweetest, most beautiful blog post about Petite Minx. Go see Dionne, the talented lady behind City of Dionne, and drop her a line while you're there.
