LURAY Festival of Spring This Weekend, Mother's Day and The City Market

Posted by Melanie Schaefer on


The LURAY Festival of Spring is this weekend on Saturday MAY 5th! Please Note: This is one weekend earlier than previous years. They have also changed the time of the event this year. The festival goes from 12-6pm. Find me in my usual spot near the copy shop. Here is a link the the Facebook Event of more info.

Below are some pretty custom orders that went out in the mail this week. I have been making these simple bar type necklaces. They are pretty but this sapphire one takes the cake. I used up the last of the sapphires I had to make it. But guess who gets to go to a gem show in a few weeks. This girl!!! Yippee!

Of course it wouldn't be the weeks before Mother's Day if I wasn't making some family tree of life necklaces. This one came out gorgeous. So happy to make these special little unique gifts, many times for women who I will never meet. But after becoming a mother, these mini sculptures have even more meaning to me now. I am still taking last minute orders for these if you need something unique and special for Mother's Day. They are also great for birthdays and Christmas too.

I recently worked with this mother of the bride that I met at the Maple Festival. Trish is going to be wearing a fairly plain dress and was looking for the perfect statement piece of jewelry to complete her look for the big day. I worked with her to create exactly what she was looking for. Her set had a bracelet and matching earrings of course. I'm pleased with the final product and cannot wait to see pics from the big day. Many people don't know that I do a lot custom work. I used to do bridal shows when I was still living in Vermont. I have not really marketed for this here in Virginia but I am good at making custom jewelry for any occasion.


Come find me at the City Market again on May 12th, 7a-12p. Here is a link the their Facebook Page. Check out the market if you are in the area. It's one of THE BEST around and one of the longest running markets in Virginia. I do not know what spot I will have so you just have to look for me. Look for my tablecloths!
