.......the hurrier I go...........

by Kelli Pope


"The hurrier I go, the behinder I get."
~ Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland


Have you ever felt that way? WOW!! What a week!! My first Spring art show is this weekend, and I'm nowhere close to being ready. Working full time leaves little time for my "creative getaways". I love to just hole up in my studio, and get lost in jewelry making. (Sometimes the mood calls more for making components where I get to HAMMER!! :o) I'm sure some of you can relate!!) Due to a crazy work schedule and other commitments, I just haven't fully filled that creative need this week, nor the inventory I'd hoped to have. I think most, if not all of the pieces I posted last week, went to one of my wonderful retail shops in Cadiz, Ky.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I could not do it all without my wonderful, supportive husband. (Nor would I want to!) He's cooked and cleaned, run errands, antiqued components and kept me sane this week. LOVE YOU, STEVE!!!!! You are my rock! Thank you for supporting my need to create!

Here are a few of my favorites from this week.... then back to the studio I go!!!



Hammered sterling silver, and antiqued, hammered copper




Hammered sterling silver, hammered antiqued copper and patinated copper components and pendant by Shannon LeVart.




Antiqued, hammered copper with FABULOUS ceramic beads by Mary Ann Carroll! Don't you just love that texture??

( They may just be my most favorite, EVER!)



Hammered sterling silver, and ceramic beads and pendant by Mary Ann. These beads have a GREAT finish on them.. glassy with a bit of a crackle.

Have a wonderful week, jewelry fans!!! I hope the hurrier YOU go the "aheader" you get! :)

I know what you mean...I feel that way about half the day at my "real" job! Good luck at your show, I'm sure you'll do great AND have a great time!

Good luck, Kelli! My own farmers' market season doesn't start until the end of May, but I'm already getting antsy about making sure I have enough inventory. Good luck this weekend!
