Fran's booth was behind mine at the Louisville Artisan's Guild Show this past weekend. I have noticed this "jaw dropping booth" in passing on the way to my booth during a show. But when you watch her set it up you realize the complete MAGIC of this booth. Fran calls it her "Garden of Glass" Each flower holds one of her hand made creations.
Fran is pictured here with her good friend and booth designer Caron Maas of Caron Maas Designs. And as a side note I went to high school with and have known Caron for decades. I knew she was talented. The awesome booth is so fitting with the level of craftsmanship of Fran's beads and the jewelry she makes with them.
When I was teasing Fran and husband Jim about how "over the top and magical" the booth is. Jim said "wait till you see the water feature". I sorta thought he was kidding but I wasn't sure!
I have been interested in ART all of my life. I studied art in college and opened a porcelain restoration business in Louisville which combined my interest in art with my appreciation and love of detail. I have always been a collector of many things, amassing hundreds of thousands of buttons, trinkets, charms, bijoux, beads, found objects, and all sorts of fun things. I currently produce a line of whimsical art jewelry which I wholesale and retail across the country. I've been married to Sam for 20 plus years and we have 3 rescued Black Chow Chow's. Bear, KeLe, and Zoee my children with FUR! I will be sharing my various collections, art shows, artists, friends etc. And any thing else I think is cool will be in this Blog.
