I finally finished the Infinity piece and am extremely pleased with the way it turned out. I knew I was saving that upcycled suede for something special. I just had to wait for the design to be shown to me in a dream.
It's made completely with upcycled suede from a purse and coat I found in a thrift store. The Infinity is represented by a continuously flowing Jen's Pind weave, which is sewn into the top layer. Inside of the Infinity are butterfly wings using the same suede and black inlaid dots. To view and read more about this piece, please visit the listing in my Etsy shop.
This weekend I'll be participating in the Durham Art Walk as an exhibitor. My booth will be located at Vert & Vogue... an Eco-friendly clothing store at the Brightleaf Square Mall. I will be there both Saturday (18th) from 10am - 5pm and Sunday (19th) from 1pm - 5pm. This is a huge event with Artists spread throughout the downtown area, all within a 10 minute walking distance. The weather is supposed to be fabulous this weekend, so come on out, get your daily walk in and check out some North Carolina artists.
In two more weeks, I'll be participating in the Salisbury Cultural Arts Festival (May 2nd & 3rd). Since Ted will more than likely be out of town that weekend, a couple of great friends will be making the trip with me to help me out. This will also be an outdoors festival in downtown Salisbury, full of art, music, literature... everything you could possibly want to see. If you're in the area, please come out.
Now to get back to making more pieces... Although we all dream of selling out at a show, we really don't want that to happen. =)
Peace, Love & Happy Mailling,
