Come see my latest jewelry designs at Art on the Avenue in Alexandria, VA this Saturday, October 3rd from 10 am-6 pm! I will be sharing booth E 34 with my mom so you can see her jewelry too. My brother’s beautiful photography will be right next door in E 33. Mt. Vernon Avenue in Del Ray will be filled with wonderful artists, musicians, food and fun activities for everyone! www/artontheavenue.org
I though you might like to see a “sneak preview” of the kind of designs I’m working on. This picture is a necklace and earring set that I made yesterday for a friend of mine using a copper oval that I created from a sheet of copper and after hammering it for texture and strength I added the beautiful red beads. This is just one example of the new styles I am working on. Check back often to see more!
I was accepted as an artist at the Arlington County Fair. Although traffic was slow it turned out well. I donated $74 to Heifer international which brings my fundraising total to $1,625 so far! While I was exhibiting at the fair, I met a woman who said that she manages the Patch online newspapers in this area and she wanted to have our local Patch write a feature article about me! How cool is that? Yesterday the editor of the Rose Hill Patch called to interview me and my mom for the article. I am excited to see it.
I’m busy learning and practicing new techniques and am planning to introduce my new line with lots of brand new designs in about a month. Check back for pictures!
I’m still looking for venues to do fundraising shows, so if you know of a coffee shop or salon or other place that might be good for a show, please leave a comment below or email me. And if you happen to own a location that would be good for me to do I show I would love to hear from you!
If you have any questions you can leave a comment below or email me.
It has been a very long time since I’ve updated my blog. I’m happy to say that even though Art on the Avenue was a freezing cold rainy day, I still had a great show and donated another $200 to Heifer International to help other families! That means I’ve donated more than $1,500 so far. I’ve been very busy with my gymanstics competition season since November but I really want to start working hard toward my $3,000 goal. I am looking for a place to do a show soon where I will donate 100% of my sales to Heifer so that I can really get my donations up. You can see my fundraising progress here: http://sphere.heifer.org/c.swL1KcNZLxH/b.5547919/k.97B/Search_Participants/siteapps/personalpage/ShowPage.aspx?c=swL1KcNZLxH&b=5547919&sid=iwJYIgPXJeL0KmPXKqG
Do you know of a coffee shop, or a salon, or another place that would have lots of people coming in on a Sunday afternoon that would let me set up my jewelry for a show with 100% of my sales going to Heifer International to help families? If you do, please let me know!
Only 5 more days until Art on the Avenue! www.artontheavenue.org I’m very excited and a little nervous too. This is the biggest show I’ve ever done. I’ve been working hard making lots of great jewelry…I just hope it will be enough. I will be at the festival early to set up but then I have to leave for a few hours for gymnastics practice.
My mom will have my jewelry (and hers) there all day so you can still buy my designs and help me raise money for Heifer International even while I’m at practice. I will be back by 3:00 and will stay through the end of the festival at 6, so come then if you want to see me in person. I hope to see you there!
I was accepted into my first juried art show Art on the Avenue http://www.artontheavenue.org! The show will be on October 1st on Mt. Vernon Avenue in Alexandria, VA. I am busily thinking up and creating lots of new designs for the show and am hoping to sell lots and raise a bunch of money for Heifer International!
8 year-old jewelry designer Mia Rose creates beautiful one of a kind jewelry and donates 25% of her sales to Heifer International to help fight world hunger. Each donation helps a needy family to develop a sustainable source of nutrition and income and gives them the opportunity to continue to spread hope and health in their community by “passing on the gift” to others. Through her jewelry business, Mia Rose donated $1,278 in 2010 and she plans to donate $3,000. Please browse her special designs and help make that goal a reality!
I will post pictures of some of the great things I’m creating very soon.
