I'm really pleased with this BeachStone Cuff! I made a few because I don't think I want to sell this one. It will be interesting to test the concept at the craft shows.
I heard an interview about beach pebbles on "North By Northwest", a programme on CBC Radio. Ellen Van der Flier Keller was discussing her Field Guide to the Identification of Pebbles. It's a handy (waterproof) folding guide. There are wonderful photos and a terrific geological description of many types of pebbles on the shore. I recommend it to anyone who has the beach stone "bug".

The background screening goes to the level where the top shelf will lie. The grid brackets are placed. The top shelf is positioned and I use a couple of tin boxes (that carried merchandise to the show) on the table.
The lower shelf is placed on the tin boxes and the assembly is covered with draped fabric.
Here's a detail of one of the latest Pear themed pieces.

I want the booth to have a funky look with interesting fixtures and colours- (purple red and wickery yellow?) but I also want things to have a sense of order. The first investment this year will be proper table coverings. That blue bed sheet has got to go!!
Tomorrow I'll set up the booth in a spare room and begin to revise the set up...
Here's an item that will be in the booth- a vase I did yesterday. Sixties Flower Power anyone?

I took this photo of a family of sparrows who were waiting for breadcrumbs as we ate breakfast at The Treehouse Restaurant in Ganges. The photo reminded me to check my supply of "Little Bird" pins.... good thing checked- I have six left! The bird pins have sold very well through the smmer. I'll replenish the supply through the week perhaps making some that are more realistic. Here's a few of the ones that were available through the summer season.
One day I'd like to do some bird sculptures in the same way I make the standing Moxies-- maybe if I find some time.... dream on gera.

Speaking of travelling, I'll be away for a Thanksgiving break. I'll be visiting beautiful Saltspring Island. Here's the little cottage where I'll be staying.....
Finally, kudos to my friend Tina Holden who was featured today in Polymer Clay Notes! Tina is a fellow Vancouver Islander and we both share the BeachStone addiction ...our pockets are stretched out of shape from collecting stones on our beach walks and our worktables are littered with a combination of real and faux BeachStones! Her Blog link is in the list on the right.
