Last Show

The last show of the season!!

Okay, I only do three, and one is a Artist Tour, but that's it for the season for me, possibly!  There might be one more around the holiday, we'll see.

I had my "Pearl" going on for the show.  Second time I got to wear it, and oh my gosh, the responses were so much fun!!  Everyone wanted to know what those clothes were all about, and where I got them. There might be a few gals looking her up.  Gave you lots of plugs Robin!


Here I am in front of the booth, feeling the love with my Magnolia Pearl on.  This was the most amazing show ever for me in Anacortes, WA.  The stock market had dropped 500 points before the first day of the show, and I had record setting sales.  Go figure!

Thank you to each and every one of you who purchased a piece of my jewelry.  It was so much fun to meet some followers, and see them in person.  Thanks for taking the time to swing by my booth, and appreciate your business.


Maddie did her part in helping at the show!!!  Isn't she a good helper, licks toes while they look.  Quite the team we are!  And WH was busy the whole time helping me out, getting lunch and writing everything up.  Thanks goodness for the new electronic device Square!  Love you Square! 


I listed a few pieces in my Etsy store today, so swing on over if you get a chance.  This is your chance to own a Riki piece!  I was asked so many times to put some pieces on Etsy, so here we go! 

This is the sweetest dragonfly soldered to a brass base, love it.  Makes me "laugh"!



Here is one of my darling soldered bee designs.  I just love the touch of bling soldered on the wings.  And if you want to learn to do that, I have a video you can purchase on my sidebar!

Thanks again to each and everyone of you, for helping to make it the best year ever.

Hugs,


Riki

Look at you Miss Pearl... I think Maddie just wants something "pearlie" too. You need to make her a collar with some lace on it. She's special you know.
Love the necklace. Really beautiful...

Charlene said...

Adorable picutures of you & Maddie! HOW did you get her to STAY under the table??? Elle would have been bouncing all over the room wanting people to pick her up. We met a couple in Houston that had 2 Havanese & they called them VELCRO DOGS! Isn't that a perfect description??? LOVED IT! Miss You!

The dragonfly really looks very awesome on the table with your genius composition of the metal and the stones added to the creation.

Hi Riki, It’s been awhile. I was home in Wisconsin and when I’m here I am now so wrapped up in working the room in Etsy that my blogging has taken second place. No worries. I join the crowd is saying congrats on all your success on your show. Always so stressful and you want so much to do well. Good for you. you got it all going on. All the best, Cynthia
