Rare Artisans Exhibition News

I am very honored to belong to a group of craftsmen that began to collaborate about a year ago ~ "Rare Artisans". We put together a simple website to showcase the artist's works last November, and we began to build our http://www.rareartisans.etsy.com/ shop in January of this year.

I'm extremely pleased to announce that Rare Artisans recently received an unsolicited communication from the Pasadena Bead and Design Show inviting us to exhibit our handcrafted jewelry, original artwork, and photography. Apparently they found our website http://www.rareartisans.com/ and liked our work!

The show will be held at the Pasadena Hilton on August 14 through 17, 2008. Thursday-Sunday; 10AM to 6PM daily. This is a well publicized, juried artisan trade show showcasing two hundred and fifty exhibitors who are committed to design and handwork: wearable art, handmade beads, art jewelry, designer components, art couture, lapidary, textiles, enameling, ceramics, embellishments, metalwork, collectibles, glass, interior d├ęcor, and decorative arts, along with artisan suppliers to the trade. It is well publicized in all major bead, jewelry, gem & textile magazines, including; Ornament, Belle Armoire, Belle Jewelry, American Style, Niche, Art Jewelry, Bead & Button, BeadStyle, Beadwork, Stringing, Beads 2008, Colored Stone, Fiber Arts, and Jewelry Artist, along with local and LA area advertising in newspapers and weekly magazines and radio advertisements.

We are all elated and on cloud nine!
