Alaska State Fair

We survived opening weekend at the Fair with excellent attendance and great sales. This year, my jewelry displays are spread around the building and it seems to be working.
Here is a mixture of some necklaces, earrings, earring sets. Below are my knitted, felted handbags.


This is some of my freeform beadwork and new oxidized necklaces. On the opposite wall are my two earring racks -- the "bread & butter" of Orion Designs! My earring sets (lower right) are a hot commodity this year as well. I raised the price of them this year for the first time in about 8 years. This was necessitated by the rise in the price of precious metals. I'm thankful that my customers appreciate the materials and the work that goes into creating them.
