This weekend was my first time exhibiting at the International Gem and Jewelry show (Intergem). What an amazing experience! I was completely overwhelmed, both emotionally and physically (agh, my aching feet!). I had a lot of misgivings as to whether my jewelry would be received well, as there's not a lot of artisan jewelry at these shows -- it's either cheap costume jewelry or high-end gemstones and diamonds, and not much in between.
It was exhausting, but well worth it. Thank goodness I had help all three days, because I couldn't have handled it otherwise.
Here are a few photos -- I'll post more later but am still digging out from under custom orders and unpacking!
