The show is finally over and I am exhausted! But the whole experience was amazing. I really had no idea what to expect and I was pretty terrified the days before the show. I wasn't expecting to sell anything, more hoping to make some connections. In the end I was able to do both. I met some great jewelers, jewelry lovers, collectors, gallery owners and curators. And I sold a one of a kind necklace! The gala on Friday was sold out and I received the emerging artist award for artistic excellence! I was blown away by the positive and constructive feedback that I received. The best part of the whole thing was watching people's reactions to the things that I had made. I consider it all to be a great learning experience and huge success! This week I will post more photos from the show and the weeks leading up to it. Thank you so much to everyone who came out to show their support for all of the jewelers there. Special thanks to Annie and Brandt, I couldn't have done it without you!
