In my last post I made a list of things I wanted to achieve this year – I’ve been working hard at sticking to it! I’ve done two market stalls over the past two months and I have two more coming up next week. It’s always hard to know what your audience will be like and whether or not the day will be worth it. My last art fair, ‘Realms of Rummage’ at The Cookie in Leicester was a really positive experience for me, full of lovely people taking an interest in my work, and yet my previous stall in Stourbridge had not been anywhere near as successful. Anything could happen and it’s always a good learning experience.
From my last stall, I learnt that pink was the most popular colour within my hand-painted earrings. I have taken this on board and will be stocking up on my pink designs! I also trialled out my newly-made necklaces for the first time and these seemed to be a success. I’ll be doing more and more designs as soon as possible.
Other newly-made products are my printed birthday cards and coasters. I’m excited to have designed cards digitally for the first time and I’m planning to create a whole collection for different occasions which will hopefully be sold in independent design shops. Recent work examples:
