Friday arrives with a definite chill in the air, and is cold in the office this morning.
I have been working in several things this week as well as preparing for the Flea Market.
Cage Match – Coif Caged Genuine Rose Quartz Heart shaped gemstone. Using the European 4-in-1 Weave, a cage is created for things to placed into and then closed, ensnaring the object within.
The twist tie is still attached, as I do not know how I want to complete the piece. It hasn’t told me what it wants to be yet, pendant, key-chain, thingamabob.
After creating a rectangular length of chain, the opposite sides are brought together and connected at one edge creating a tube of sorts. The top or bottom edge is tapered and closed with additional jump rings.
The bottom of the piece is closed tightly, and the rest of the cage spreads across the surface of the stone, the top of the cage is closed as the bottom and stretches over and across the stone creating a bail to hang the object from a cord or chain.
As soon as I decide on an appropriate something to hang it from it will be listed in the shop. Time to cage more rocks!
There are two Markets to shop this October so lets get the information out there.
This weekend is the Treasure Valley Flea Market. You know the drill!

Also going on in Boise is a real Halloween treat. Bella’s Grove is hosting The Second Annual Witches Market, Sunday, October 14th, 2012. 2210 S. Broadway, Suite 102, Boise, ID. Spooky fun for everyone!
Hostess, Shelly Moody of Green Witch Designs describes the event:
“This will be our second Annual Witches Market. We will have vendors and goodies and all kinds of great stuff. Join us in merrymaking and frivolity and take the opportunity to support your community and get a jump on your Yule shopping! We will have vendors selling custom leather work, incense, jewelry, terrariums, and other odd bits and pieces. We will have Tarot Readers, and a palm reader as well.”
We hope you will take the time to mark these events on your calendar and stop by and see some of the wonderful, unique Handmade items as well as other offerings from around the Treasure Valley, a Scentsy Representative will be attending the Witches Market, as well.
