I have been busy getting some new Copperhead Jewelry ready for the Autumnfest in Abbeville, MS this Saturday. I am excited and apprehensive. I haven’t done a show like this since the one last November. That was the day I had my last heart attack. It wasn’t the show that caused the heart attack though because I had felt bad all week.
This should be a fun day. I will get to see my sisters and maybe get to sell some jewelry too.
About the Jewelry
My wife had been telling me about a ring that she had seen on the internet that looked like a cotton boll and she wanted one. We looked in several places and couldn’t find one so I sat down and made her one. I really love it when I make something that she likes so well it makes her squeal and jump up and down. She did this, not once but twice, as I was making jewelry this week. I had to make one for my daughter too because she was trying to take my wife’s ring. Since they liked them that much I figured I had better make some more for the Autumnfest.
In case you can’t recognize what the earrings are, I decided to try to make some “Owls”. I showed the first pair to some people and I already have several orders but I am going to wait to fill them after Autumnfest. Some of the “Hoot Owls” actually look like Gremlins to me. Since they are handmade they are all different and I can’t help but experiment with them a little while I am making them. My daughter said that a couple of pair of them look like Frogs. I guess I can just leave it to the imagination of the buyer and they can be whatever they want them to be.
I hope to be posting more pics an more updates on this site from Copperhead Jewelry. Hopefully I will have some pictures of Autumnfest for you next week.
