MAKE IT VANCOUVER - DAY 3 has arrived

It's Day 3 at Make It! The Handmade Revolution and the last day of this fabulous 3 day #makeitshow. I've had so many comments from people saying it's the best show in town and how they love the diverse selection of Makies with something for everyone. I have to pick up the wool dryer balls today. They are supposed to save 40% off drying time, making them great energy savers. Admission is only $5 and if you flash this photo you get $1 off so only $4. I'm in booth #140 and hope you can stop in. Have a great day Everyone! #makeitvancouver #makeitshow #debvdesigns #jewelry #jewellery #enamel #torchfiredenamel #yvrevents #metalartjewelry #wiresmith #metalsmith #silversmith #foldform #repousse

THANK YOU for shopping my booth at the Make It Vancouver show.

After a very long day, I'm now at home relaxing and hear my bed calling me. Before I check out to get my beauty sleep so I'm nice and refresh for tomorrow, I had to drop in and send a BIG "THANK YOU" to everyone who came by my booth today and to let you know how much I enjoy hearing that you follow me and my journey on FB or Instagram @debVdesigns. Your ongoing support truly inspires me. Make It! The Handmade Revolution #makeitshow #makeitvancouver #debVdesigns #jewelry #vancity #vancouver

Sneak Peek!

I've been up since 7 and have so much to do today and have congestion on my chest. Hope a little vicks helps and it doesn't turn into anything nasty. I have a list of errands to do before setting up for Make It! The Handmade Revolution and thought I'd throw another little teaser your way with these earrings. Would love to hear your feedback. #makeitshow #makeitvancouver #debVdesigns #jewelry #enamel #earrings #fashion #women

Enameled Cross

Today was enameling day in the studio and oh how I love to enamel. So much to get ready. Cut out the designs brind off the burrs sand buff shape THEN over to the torching station. This is where it all happens. Here's a little teaser of these sexy long & narrow heart earrings (about 2 1/4" long from tope of ear wire to tip of heart) I'll be taking to the Vancouver Make It Show this weekend. The great thing about enamel is you never know what you will get. All of these earrings are using the same color. It changes depending on how close to the flame you have it and how long you keep it in the flame. I'm very pleased with the results. What do you think? #Makeitshow #makeitvancouver #debVdesigns #jewelry #enamel #enameling #handmade

I had a little studio time today testing out graphite effects on enamel. I was able to draw onto the enameled piece and then fire it again to set the design into the enamel. A few leaf earrings, a raven on white and two hearts, one with zantango and the other with just a little love. #enamel #graphite #makeitshow #makeitvancouver #jewelry #debVdesigns #jewellery #raven #leaves #hearts

MY NEW DISPLAY TABLES FOR 2016 SHOWS

FINALLY!  
Super excited to share the new tables my DH is building for my upcoming shows.  

I've been using the stacking plastic shelving tables and loved the flexibility for set up but they are bulky, and take so long to set up. We tried one narrow table last year at the #makeitshow and it took up less room giving more space to walk into the booth.  

I found a pattern for a big table and DH tweaked it for my needs.  

Take a look and tell me what you think.
