Valentines and Beyond… A Tree of Hearts

Tree of Hearts

Tree of Hearts

 

There’s a new tree of hearts in town available at The Pod, in Uptown Normal, Illinois, across from the Discovery Museum.

Here’s their information through Uptown Normal, and here’s their Facebook page.

I love to make and wear hearts all year round, but especially for Valentine’s Day.  It is one my favorite times of the year.  Hearts, chocolates, champagne… who needs more?  Oh yes, jewelry makes celebrating complete.  

Other places to find my jewelry are listed on my Here I Am page.   Thanks again for your continued support.

Here are a few more new things you’ll find on that tree:

Copper heart with wrapped silver, garnet, charm.

Copper heart pendant with wrapped silver, garnet, charm.

Dichroic glass heart with silver and copper.

Wow, after a fantastic turnout last night for February’s First Friday and the Tour de Chocolat’, the Main Gallery 404 owner, Lisa Lofgren, asked if I would mind showcasing my work in the front window with The Red Lady for another week?  My response?  ABSOLUTELY and THANK YOU VERY MUCH!  

The Red Lady has a great view!

Hearts On Fire ~ The Red Lady Awaits

The Red Lady beckons from the front window of Main Gallery 404, where I just added tons of new jewelry, with a heavy accent on hearts, in honor of Valentine’s Day.   

Who can resist the Red Lady?

When new owner, Lisa Lofgren, asked to feature my work in the window from now through February’s First Friday, I was honored and thrilled!  Just in time for Valentine’s Day!

The Neighborhood Thrift Store generously let us borrow a beautiful art deco vanity (the one in the above photo) for the display.  And, yes, it’s also for sale.

 On February 1, 2013, Downtown Bloomington, IL also celebrates with its annual Tour de Chocolat’:

“An annual event and celebration of chocolate!  Participating downtown businesses offer free samples of food containing chocolate.”  

Uh, huh.  Trust me, there is everything chocolate to sample.  It’s a super fun way to spend an evening. 

My jewelry is now in the window until 2-2-13.  

Gallery hours are:  

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday:  12-5 PM                                                              

Saturday:  10 AM – 5 PM

Closed:  Monday, Tuesday

Here are a few of the available pieces:
