Happy Almost-Summer! I’ve been enjoying making earrings with antique pen nibs (many 100+ years old) and Swarovski crystals, no longer being produced as components for the wholesale trade. These pictured have sterling hooks and fun vintage links as well. They’re available at The Beaufort Emporium in downtown Beaufort, SC.
I’ll list them soon in my Etsy shop, which is currently taking a little break. See you back there in mid-June-ish! Feel free to send an email or a message through Etsy if you need to reach me before then. Take good care, Robyn
**Thursday, MARCH 5 UPDATE** – And I thought yesterday’s weather was challenging! Storms are on tap all day today, so I will need to dart back and forth to tend to a nervous wee beastie doggie. I’d like to keep my sidewalk sign in one piece, so I’m just going to use today to get ready for First Friday. See you tomorrow eve!!
Many thanks to all who kept my shop humming for Art Walk on October 26 and First Friday on November 1! I appreciate the conversation, the encouragement, and of course – the $upport!
Special thanks to Anne Glaze for lending a hand for Art Walk, and for artsyletters regular Kim Poovey for all the help on First Friday.
I’m posting “Harvest to Holidays” pictures over on Instagram – Feel free to follow artsylettersgifts. And if you don’t receive my quarterly (if that!) newsletter, you can click over to the right and sign up. :0)
Greetings! After a follow-up at the orthopedist’s office, I was able to give the crutches the boot – :0) – but I’ll be IN the boot until the end of August. I’m only able to work on a limited basis in coming weeks, but I’ve re-opened my Etsy Shop online. (The 10 percent off no-coupon-needed sale for July is still on!) Open Studio hours will resume in earnest for fall, beginning with First Friday downtown, Sept. 6, 5-8 p.m. (For next week’s First Friday, Aug. 2, come celebrate The Beaufort Emporium‘s 3rd Birthday!! 905 Bay Street. Cupcakes and nice give-aways!! I’ll be there, happy to mingle at ground level. ;0) )
(*UPDATE*: 7-15: well, now I’ve gone and fractured a bone in my ankle. Not sure when I can resume regular hikes up the stairs & regular hours, but I hope soon!! Thanks. See above for latest! )
(UPDATE: The studio will be closed July 11 & 12 as I will be traveling out of town for a funeral. We’ll be open several days during Water Festival – look for the sign out front. Thanks!)
Happy JULY! I’m busy in the studio & will open this month for FIRST FRIDAY, July 5, 5-8 p.m. Then, hours will be on the flexible side, with some extra open days during WATER FESTIVAL! :0) See you soon!
I was thrilled artsyletters was the Spotlight Business for First Friday this month. And icing on the cupcake was this TV coverage from Lyndsey Gough of WTOC in Savannah! Enjoy a taste of the celebration. (Ignore the windblown hair!) Link and pictures below.
