Wire Crochet/ Reblooming Bags for Pop Up

My little fingers have been flying with a crochet hook, working on getting some of my more unique wire crochet jewelry pieces created for saturday’s Pop Up Pearl.

So the Reblooming bags need buttons, labels, and lining…. which will happen tonight.  The wire crochet is done, for now…. however i do have to adhere the pin backs to them.  I adventured into a few wire crochet earrings, to match the bracelets… we shall see what happens with them.  And my experiment is wire wrapped necklaces on a black faux suede cord.  I really like how the light blue shell ones turned out… but that is what i had in large beads.   So again, an experiment.

I have silk dying and in various stages of drying… photos to follow tomorrow.  I am rolling out gossimer silk 90″ scarves…. wonderful around the neck, as a waiste sash, or just about any way you would like to embellish yourself.  The silk is very light and airy…. and lends to a more airy dying process.   I promise photos to follow.

We are both excited for the actual day of Pop Up Pearl.  Steve is busy organizing the Blues and Barbeque portion of the festival, and coordinating all of the help from Grace Church.  4 cases of ribs are ordered, and our house smells like pork central with him having smoked and slow roasted 6 large pork butts so far for pulled pork.  All the pork is packed and frozen awaiting saturday. 

So you will find Steve in the grass area between Mr E and the vacant restaurant (formerly Theo’s) … just follow the smoke to the grills where he will be celebrating all things blues and barbeque.

And you will find me, and the Images in Bloom booth in the Cavana Building, in the vacant storefront with the awning marked “Truely Carpet”.  We promise to chalk the sidewalks to point the way to our shop.  Please visit.  Mention this blog and I have a small surprise for you!!!

Saturday – May 19th Noon to Dusk – Pearl Road from the Zoo to the Library in good Old Brooklyn!!!!
