This past weekend I sat on the jury for a competitive craft and art fair. I came home with my head buzzing from all the things I learned and set to get it all down in writing (after obsessively editing all my slides to reflect what I learned). I decided to publish my insights on a new blog. If you’re currently applying or thinking of applying to art fairs or craft shows, take the time to read this. It’s a little long but will be worth it I think! www.shopdanabechert.com/blogs/news or find the link in profile. #craftshow #juriedshow
Earring update is live 🦓🙌 restocked the arch earrings and a bunch of new colorful designs. Arch earrings sold out in a few hours last time so don’t sleep on these! It’s all I’ll have until mid summer. Solid sterling hooking earwires. Lightweight and fun! Link in profile or tap post. 🌊
Happy spring everyone! Counting the days until we can bring all our houseplants outdoors and give them larger pots. Which plant would you like to see in this 8” hanging planter Only one of a handful left. Purchase link in post.
I still have a few of these illustrated tumblers left on the webshop. Animal motif one side, botanical on the other with geometric accents. A new look for me! I’ll be working with the door wide open today it’s 70!
Alright y’all. The black and white arch earrings are listed! I’ve got four sizes up on the new webshop. Get em while the gettins good. (Thanks for modeling @pasturesongfarm )
Shop update tomorrow at 3 pm est. I’ll have earrings, illustration pieces starting at $65, hanging planters, carved mugs and more. Set your alarm if you want the good stuff!
Working on isolated images today. I shoot on a few different backgrounds depending on what the final image is for. Juried shows like the black to white gradient, online images look best isolated on white and my style shots for press and Instagram I like on gray paper with vellum overtop. This is my first shoot with new professional lighting. Much more consistent than the outdoor natural light I’ve used in the past. Plus I don’t have to spend all day outdoors when it’s below freezing like today!
New studs! I’m here at #accbaltimore until 5 today then hoping to get all the remaining work online sometime in the next week. After a much needed rest.
I’m pretty excited about these new linear pieces. Thanks for the encouragement @shoppemarche
