Ellison Bay Pottery at MPTV Holiday Art Fair

Perhaps, one of the "perks" of going to shows is meeting old friends and making new one.

I met John and Diane from Ellison Bay Pottery last weekend. They came in later than us. John greeted us as we were busy designing our booth. Of course, I had to meet Diane who was talking on the phone, sharing her recipe with her daughter.

During the show, we talked about art, parenting and "stuff". Diane showed me her millefiori necklace and some new pottery pieces she made. I showed her my new paper and constellation jewelry. And then, we talked about Door County. She has always been our resources for the "deep secret" of Door County... Not really a secret... We talked about "Feed the Fish" movie that took place in Door County. She told me how the community chip in with the making of the movie... And of course we have to talk about the shipwrecks in Door County...

We have to pack up and say good bye... But still glad that blog and twitter will keep us update.
Will look forward to seeing you again next year...

Polaris Little Dipper with CZ in flush setting

Polaris or North Star, is the brightest star in the little dipper constellation.

With this idea, I designed this necklace in sterling silver, little dipper constellation with CZ in gypsy (flush) setting to represent the north star.

The edge of the pendant is textured and the necklace is brushed finish.

So new... that it's still need to be listed on my Etsy store.

Family Name Bracelet, An Anniversary Gift Idea

Need some idea for anniversary gift? How about personalized family bracelet from Bigib.

Recently, I made family name bracelet for a couple who is celebrating their 50th anniversary. They have 4 children and 7 grand children.

Each name is hand stamped on a silver disc and linked with jump ring. Just like a family, every family member is "linked" with each other. Hand made "S"clasp added to connect the bracelet.

It's truly one of a kind, personal gift you can give for your special one.
Wouldn't you agree?

One of a Kind Three Yuzen Chiyogami / Japanese Washi Paper Magnetic Bookmarks of a kind magnetic bookmark from Washi/Yuzen Chiyogami paper.

This is the bookmark that stays in the last page you read. It's great for reading in a public transportation, car, beach, as you don't have to worry your bookmark will slip away...

The size is about 1"x2.75". It's made from Japanese Yuzen Chiyogami paper that I acquired when I was in Japan.

This special listing comes in a set of three. It's awesome to use it as a bookmark or to frame it.

Great for birthday gift or people on the go... To learn more about this, please visit
