As I get closer to the One of a Kind show, I find that I need musical motivation to help with the long work hours. Well, that and lots of caffeine. Anyway, here's a sampling of my studio playlist. Enjoy.

I have decided to use round discs covered in fabric to display my necklaces. They create a simple visual element and can be placed in a fun pattern on the wall. Each disc is also perfectly suited to display a necklace. I'm using decorative embroidery tacks to hold the necklace in place.
These displays will be on my side walls, which are white. The back wall will be painted grey. I will place a vinyl sign in the middle of the back wall and hang some birch bark panels on either side to go with my birch bark jewelry. I think it will look quite nice when its all put together. I hope, at least.
I am also working away on some fun new jewelry designs as well as these new displays. I'm really enjoying this opportunity to make a large variety of items, though I am definitely feeling the pressure of crunch time. I hope that it will all come together in the end and that all the artists will have a great show this year at One of a Kind in Chicago.
