Treasure Island Music Festival

Along with the ferris wheel rides, games, food, creative vendors and happenings, and of course--the music, Kelly Malone of Workshop SF created a huge, interactive, DIY/game/campsite area. People were having a great time building terrariums, sewing, chilling in the outdoor lounge - complete with comfy sofa and coffee table - or lounging in one of several pillow-strewn teepees... She makes a thoroughly welcoming environment, and people really enjoyed it.

But let's talk about the lovely festival-goers who came to my booth! I have such fun meeting people who love this mesh, and it's a special joy when they forgo the box and insist on wearing the jewelry right away. Here are three of several stylish gals who walked away wearing their recent purchases!

This time the booth was simply a six foot table, so one small display had to rise to the occasion. Note to self: if you triple the display height it will be very difficult to see around it to greet people! Fortunately my neighboring designers were very friendly and let me shift around a bit...

By the end of the weekend quite a few of these pieces had found new homes. Sometimes it can be a little hard to say goodbye, and with several one-(or two)-of-a-kind pieces gone, I look forward to the next vintage bag find, and all the new jewelry it will inspire!

And finally, in case you didn't catch that poster on the far left side of the table... please see the latest jewelry model - so ably demonstrating that the mesh looks great on guys, too!

Next event will be an evening trunk show at the Blue Muse in SF. Come have a cocktail and shop the local SF wares! It's Halloween-themed, so we may opt for a costume... more details soon.
