Glassie Monday - 1st Art Fair of the 2013 Holiday Season

This coming Saturday I have my first art fair of the 2013 Holiday Season. I will be in New Berlin, Wisconsin at the Ronald Reagan School on Calhoun Road.  The Woman's Club has the fair every year in the middle of October. I love the fair in fact I think it is one of my favorites.  I have been selling at the fair for 5 years. My space in perfect in the cafeteria on a corner heading into the main gym. PERFECT LOCATION! 

This year I have a completely new line of jewelry.  Crushed bottle art.  I have taken different wine and beer bottles smashed them - then heated the glass pieces to approx. 1400 degrees for 12 hours rounding all the edges of the pieces of glass.  I have then taken the glass pieces and designed jewelry.  I have earrings, bracelets, pendants, purse holders, bookmarks, and hair art. Here is a pic of a few of the items. All made with wine and beer bottles.

Each is unique and original.  I have many different items but not a lot of any one thing. I still have wind chimes and bottle art for sale.  I also will be bringing a few Jager Tree Ornaments and Wishing Stars ornaments all made from recycled glass.

Right after the fair I will be heading home to leave to spend a night playing Bingo with a friend.  Karen goes to a all night Bingo event in Woodstock, IL.  I told her "Sure" I will go with.  I like to play Bingo and Karen is a fun friend. My plan for Sunday is sleeping!  Hubby always watches I am good to sleep all day!
