Fall has fallen and winter is coming!

It’s been quite a year so far, 2015.

IMG_1796We completed our first season of art & wine festivals and special events, and boy are we knackered! It began right after we came home from our whirlwind trip to Ireland in mid-June, when we landed in our first show in San Anselmo. From there we averaged one art show every two weeks through the beginning of October, along with one gallery exhibit reception and one (first-ever!) metalsmithing demonstration and reception, which happened to be a great success! And in the middle of all this, we managed to welcome an 8 week old husky puppy AND a rescued feral kitten into our family…so yeah, time for a well deserved respite.

Helena and Winchester!

Doing a season of art shows was an incredible learning experience. Even though we didn’t travel far (staying in the bay area for all of them) it was still quite a rollercoaster of studio work, promotional work, time-management, and just remembering to feed ourselves at regular intervals.

HIGHLIGHTS

All in all, it was a fabulous season, and we thank all of you who made it out to see us!

What about the holiday season, you might wonder? We have one show booked for the holiday season, and are putting the rest of our creative energy toward stocking our two gallery partners with beautiful and unique items that won’t be in our Etsy shop. If you happen to be near Petaluma, come see us at the Petaluma Downtown Craft Mart’s Holiday Crafterino!


Petaluma Holiday Crafterino
Saturday, November 28th from 11am-4pm
Petaluma Veterans Memorial Building
1094 Petaluma Blvd S, Petaluma, CA 94952


Because we’re only committing to this one show in late November, this means we’re available for your holiday commissions. If you’ve been thinking about ordering something special from us, now is the time. All holiday orders must be received by Tuesday, December 1 for delivery by Wednesday, December 21. And of course, the sooner the better!

For those of you who just want to peruse the shop this season, use this coupon code (expires 12/1) as a gift from us: WINTER15

And if you just want to shop for something beautiful and handmade, drop into our two partner galleries: ACCI Gallery in Berkeley, and Abrams Claghorn Gallery in Albany. Both these galleries have superb collections of bay area artists and artisans as well as our jewelry, and it’s a great place to support the arts and your local economy.

Other than that, we’re hoping to enjoy the winter working on some new designs, polishing up the website, and keeping you all up on the latest through our social media posts.

Until next year, best wishes to you all!
