Fall is in the air!

Last Friday, November 2 was the Gala event for the Ever Present Annual Holiday Show at the Dunedin Fine Arts Center here in Tampa Bay, Florida. In appreciation of their giving spirit, patrons of the Art Center and it's contributing artists were wined and dined for a fun and festive kick-off to the Fall Harvest Fine Arts Festival and the annual show and sale.  For 21 years, DFAC's holiday show has been a treasured event in the Bay Area.

I am thrilled to be included as a featured artist in this year's show! My wearable art jewelry will be on display through December in the main gallery, together with the artwork of talented painters, pottery makers and sculptors. If you're in the area, stop by and take a peek!
The scarf and lapel pins have turned out to be very popular! Thanks to all of you who count them among your favorite cool weather accessories!
My Fall jewelry and wire classes are underway. My Winter I and II offerings will be posted soon. I've added a pin/brooch making class for the Winter class sessions.
I've been adding lots of new jewelry-making items and, of course, new jewels in my eBay and Etsy stores and keeping very busy!
Other happenings in the Perry household. This weekend was Homecoming...a very big deal for my teenage daughter and her friends! Ahh the memories (and the drama)! Kids just grow up way too fast!
Here are pics of my latest jewelry offerings.

For those starting to feel the cold bite of approaching winter here's a summery ocean-themed pin to warm your thoughts. I've left the end of the pin point unfinished so it can be blunted or sharpened to the wearer's preference.

Some earrings for the Fall season!
And finally, for those that missed them last week, here are several other new scarf and lapel pins that I recently created.
