While I thoroughly enjoyed being in the Sangre de Cristo mountains of Northern New Mexico, and I gave out business cards to everyone who came to my table, the sales part of this trip was not so great. I sold a grand total of one small pair of earrings and one small candle holder. There just weren't that many people who came! Although, the people selling paper products next to me had sale after sale. (Granted, they did very nice work! I suppose a fair like this one was the right niche for their products, I just need to find the right niche for mine.)
So, here I am in the darkest corner in a dark room, despite being next to a window.
But there was a dude there who did wire wrapping with sterling silver. I couldn't help but pick up a couple of pendants. I'm excited to use these.. Unfortunately, he doesn't yet have a website that I can direct you all too. There were some beautiful pieces a bit out of my price range - some fabulous ammonites, and a great chunk of labradorite.
While on the national parks trip, I bought a couple of other stones for use in jewelry.
I also bought 3 pieces of petrified wood (collected on private land, NOT the national park.) :)
