Three More Weekends at CT Renaissance Faire

You might have noticed that I don’t have too many items on my Etsy store at the moment. I’m in the midst of six weekends of shows. I’ve done two weekends at the CT Renaissance Faire  followed by a Saturday at Roseland Cottage for the Compass Rose Steampunk Show. Now, I’m back to the Lebanon fairgrounds for three more weekends of Renaissance!

I’ll be doing three shows in December:

Gorgeous Dragonfly Glass Box

I’ve been making the purple ring box with the dragonfly for a few years and occasionally have gotten requests for other colors. Here’s a few recent ones! They can be ordered from my Etsy site, just put in the color choice in the personalization section.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Hope everyone has a Happy Valentine’s Day. I recently started selling at Frill  – Gifts, Home Decor & More in East Hampton. She sold this cute little red heart yesterday for me. I also have my tiny boxes (3″x2″) for sale at her store, along with my angels. She’s asked me to make these hearts available year-round as well.red heart in stained glass

Ring Boxes for Valentine’s Day

small jewelry or ring box

Small ring boxes are a perfect gift for someone special. Their small size makes them great to place on your desk, nightstand or bathroom vanity. I use mine to hold rings and earrings at the end of the day, so I don’t have to put my jewelry away right away but at least I know where they are!

I’m adding these little jewelry boxes to my Etsy listings of custom designs and ones that are ready to ship. The pink one above can be found here.

Tiny Glass Boxes make Great Bridesmaid Gifts

bridesmaid giftOne of my most popular items are my Tiny Boxes, which sell great at Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and all year long for Weddings. Brides love to give them out as bridesmaid gifts – being a useful item, colorful, long lasting and truly unique. Each one is hand crafted and can be made to fit the personality of the recipient or done in the colors to suit the wedding theme. They’re even great for that hard-to-please new Mother-in-law 🙂

Fun and Funky Bat Mitzvah Gift

stained glass keepsake box Abby_side Abby_frontI was recently asked to make a keepsake invitation box for a girl who’s “fun”. Her aunt asked me to make it “fun & funky” to fit her personality. The invitation itself was so colorful it was easy to design around. We decided to make sure it had lots of color, so I extended the bands of color around the sides of the box. I hear she loves it!
