I have to admit that I was very nervous about having my first home jewelry show. I have had this type of show before, and they have always proved to be a success but I was nervous anyway. I do not know if it is my age or just the artist within that made my nerves tingle more than usual. One of my friends told me that she believed it was the artist who always seems to harbor fears of sharing their work. This is probably so as the work is held dear to my heart.
Great things happened for Adrift Art Studio and our line of Handcrafted Jewelry USA. We made enough money to allow the art studio to become a member of some of the local art groups. That is good because the memberships will help carry Adrift Art Studio closer to reaching more goals set for the studio. That creates excitement for the future of this studio!
We also made enough money to provide some donations toward a couple of charities that do such great work for their cause. St Jude's Research Hospital and The Avon Walk For Cancer will both be receiving checks from Adrift Art Studio. Some of the jewelry offered for sale was pinpointed to sell in hopes of raising money for these two very worthy organizations. This has been a long time dream for C.S. Alexis to be able to use her artwork to help. This was a great start and all of us at Adrift Art Studio are looking forward and working hard to continue doing positive things to benefit others.
Pictured here are just a few of the pieces of jewelry and artwork that we sold for this first home show for Handcrafted Jewelry USA.
