Taking part in a jewellery exhibition for the first time

Hello everyone ^_^/

this is a post I have been meaning to make for a while now. Finally I find the time to write it :)
As you might remember from a while back, in December I took part in a jewellery exhibition for the first time. It was a great experience for me as it was the first time I got to show my work in public.

The artists who live in my hometown are very well organised and every year they make various exhibitions showcasing their arts and crafts. So before Christmas they decided on a jewellery exhibition. As soon as the date was set, I started brainstorming and working, using up all my free time.

My workshop was a constant mess XD

The exhibition was opening on December 15 and lasted for a week. A day before the opening we all gathered to set everything up. I decided to showcase a fair mix of jewellery and deco items. Decoden is basically unknown in Greece and it was the first time people saw this kind of thing. Everyone was very excited and impressed by all the bling ^_^

Here is how I set up the jewellery I made.

I snapped a few photos during the opening. It was very crowded so I waited for closing time because it would be impossible to take decent photos in the crowd. This was my little corner in the room.

And here are a couple more shots so you can see what else was on display. Apart from jewellery many artists showcased other types of accessories and even some decorations and furniture. I was particularly impressed by a really cool lamp that was made of wood and clay (you can see it in the middle of the second photo below).

Finally, although you do not get to see my face often in this blog, here is a bonus shot of me XD

All in all I have to say this was a fantastic experience. I have been to many exhibitions of this kind before but I have never taken part. I was very happy and pleased because our exhibition was greeted enthusiastically by the local community and we had great success. Hopefully we will repeat this next year ^_^

Have you ever taken part in an exhibition like this? Do you like attending such events?

In the meantime you can see some of my creations here or here.
Also if you liked the jewellery I make, you can enter my ongoing giveaway for a chance to win a nail polish ring of your liking along with other prizes. Hurry up as it is open for just a couple more days.
