SWAN Day logo

This Saturday is the seventh international SWAN Day which stands for "Support Women Artists Now" Day.  Please support fellow women who are artists and fellow women who are our patrons, customers, and those who give us the daily support that we need to create.  Many places are hosting local SWAN Day events so, please check to see what is happening in your area.  YAYA will be hosting an all female exhibition on Saturday, March 29th from 5-8 pm at 338 Baronne St, New Orleans LA.

Arts Market of New Orleans:  Celebrate Africa Day

I'll also be vending in the Louisiana Crafts Guild tent at the Arts Market of New Orleans in Palmer Park this Saturday.  It will be an all silver day because I'm only bringing my Cicada Silver jewelry with me.  If you're interested in other metals, please visit me at Freret Street Festival the following Saturday when I'll have everything with me.

Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo, New Orleans

16-18 May 2014

Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo Flyer

One of the best community festivals in New Orleans is in May after the hoopla of Jazzfest is over and I'd love to see you there!  I'll have a nice assortment of jewelry including:
  • enameled copper
  • etched copper, red brass, and bronze
  • bezel set natural stone and glass cabochons
  • metal clay items
  • sterling silver hot forged chains
  • etc.
and as always, all purchases will be gift boxed in either recycled kraft paper boxes or my handmade origami boxes.  Everything is reusable and recyclable--no waste!
