The Felt Bird

Tomorrow is the grand opening of The Felt Bird, the brainchild of the crafty Estela Romanos and her musical man Riley Jantzen. I sadly will not be able to attend because I'll (not so sadly) be in Eureka Springs for a nice, long weekend. I am, however, finally mailing a box of goodies to her today. I packaged everything up last night. Take a gander:

Here are nine (of the 20) memory wire bracelets I'm sending on their brand new display. I took a cue from Miss Holly and used a picture frame, but I gave it my own twist. I attached little hooks with glue dots to the front so the bracelets could hang. Fun, huh?
My initial ring display, which required great planning, thought and execution was, sadly, a dud. It didn't occur to me until I tried it out that the very thing that made floral foam seem like a useful ring display would ultimately be its downfall. Shoving a ring base into a slit in the foam is easy and very, very messy. Anyway, here's a much simpler but still attractive display featuring all 20 of the Alice rings I sent.
So, if you are available tomorrow night, head down to Enid for the grand opening, which begins at 6 p.m. Support local art and pick up the "handmade. original. sustainable." goodies at the store!

Your displays look awesome! You're such a creative little thang. And of course, the merchandise looks pretty lovely as well. We went to the grand opening, and her shop is ADORABLE. I think your work will fit right in. :-)
