artBLISS-only 16 days away!

Can you believe artBLISS is just around the corner! We are so excited and look forward to seeing everyone! If you have not registered, it’s still not too late! Let’s do a quick review of all the happenings!

We have a variety of awesome workshops to attend! You can choose taking a workshop with Christine Damm and learn how to work with polymer clay and create colorful bangles or pendants. We also have some great metalworking classes! Learn how to make colorful metal bezels with Kerry Bogert in her True Colors Workshop or the Elemental Bracelet class with Stacie Florer!

Have you always wanted to learn how to make your own lampwork beads? Now is your chance! Kerry is an amazing lampwork artist and is back again to teach her K.reating A.rt B.eads workshop. Learn from one of the finest in the field today!

Lets talk about the importance of beautifully photographed jewelry. Yes, learning how to take beautiful photographs of your creations is very important. But lets review why it’s important!

  • A portfolio provides a visual representation of your work. You should start creating a jewelry portfolio as soon as you commence making or designing jewelry, so you can show it to interested gallery owners and merchants, potential clients and educational institutes.
  • To sell jewelry on-line, it’s imperative the photographs of your jewelry pieces are exceptional. Your customers will base their purchasing decison by what they see!  A poorly photographed, but beautifully made piece of jewelry, will perhaps never receive the opportunity of being enjoyed being worn by a happy customer.
  • Most jewelry artisans have blogs and enjoy sharing their newest and latest jewelry creations. Just imagine how you will capture your audience’s attention with clear, crisp and artististic photographs of your jewelry!

The above are only a few of the reasons of “why” and I will leave it to Kerry to show you the “how” in her Snaptastic workshop.  This is an evening workshop and seats are limited! We also have two additional evening workshops, please check them out!

Our Meet and Greet which also includes our Authors Signing will be on Friday, September 21st from 7-9pm. Entrance to the Meet and Greet is complimentary if you are registerd for a workshop. If you are unable to attend a workshop, you can register to only attend the Meet and Greet and Authors Signing for $15. It’s going to be a great evening of mingling with the instructors and friends, enjoying h’orderves, wining door prizes and more!

And lastly, let’s not forget about trading beads! Join us for our “Don’t Trash it, Destash it” event! If you wish to participate, please register on-line. There is no cost to participate! More details will be coming about this event! In the meanwhile, collect all your beads you would like to Destash for new beads!

We look foward to seeing everyone.
