MINI Reinvented

This November I had an incredible opportunity to team up with MINI USA for the MINI Reinvented campaign, a celebration of craftsmanship and a look at the all new MINI Clubman. I was one of eight San Francisco makers chosen to talk about the design and execution of my collection to their visitors, and of course, to show off a little jewelry. The pictures below were captured by their lovely photographers at the event. Visit the link above for even more!

San Francisco International Gift Fair

While I feel like I’m still cutting my teeth on the trade show circuit, I’m pretty proud of how my booth display has come along! August 2-5th I exhibited at the San Francisco International Gift Fair. I was happy to unveil a number of the new exhibiting assets I researched and acquired as of late: handsome flooring, a compact display system with freshly cut, stained and varnished wood panels, and a handful of linen displays for the brand new bridal collection. Everything went off without a hitch, and we’re adding some great new retailers to the roster this fall. Stay tuned!

A 5×10′ booth came with pipe and draped walls and lighting. In this photo I have hung banners, installed the first section of my new floors, assembled the framework for the display cases, and begun to add in the wooden paneling.

After 3 hours of load in and assembly, the booth is finally ready for jewelry on opening day.

I stained the wood panels for my display system a deep ebony color. I’m pleased that the woodgrain texture still shows through. The wood and linen displays “pop” nicely off of the ebony.

It’s opening day! Here’s a view of my booth filled with jewelry from across the aisle. Show-goers rarely stop to see the booth head on like in this photo, so  I made sure to hang my banners with enticing product photos where they would make the most impact to passers by.

Holiday Shopping

What a big weekend! I need to send out the warmest, most heartfelt thanks to those who shopped the SF Made Holiday Fair and the White Barn Winter Fair this weekend. Having two successful shows back-to-back is more than a girl could ask for!

If you still need to shop for some jewelry gifts, the 20% Off Holiday Website Sale is still going strong. Over 100 items are in stock and ready to ship with complimentary domestic USPS priority shipping.

Truth be told, I’d really love to see you all again! So I’m hoping you’ll join me at my final trunk show of the season on December 22nd at Crown Nine. See their lovely flyer and trunk show lineup below. See you there!

Two Holiday Gift Fairs

It may be crunch time in my studio this month, but make no mistake: this is the very best time of the year. Gift fairs and trunk shows give me the opportunity to get out in the world and meet great people like you! Consider shopping with me one-on-one at either of the following events this weekend.

Ceramics, textiles, prints, home goods, and *ahem* jewelry are all up for sale in this laid back three-day event.

Next is the SF Made Holiday Gift Fair in the Fort Mason’s Fleet Room in San Francisco. SF Made is a non-profit organization which promotes the manufacturing sector in San Francisco. Their organization has helped to support the creation and innovation of hundreds of small businesses that foster local employment opportunities. Their roster of members features some of the best handmade goods around. Due to the large number of vendors, their Saturday & Sunday show will feature a different selection of businesses -so consider dropping by both days!

You will find me at this show on Sunday, December 8th 10am-5pm

If you can’t make it to the shows in person, you can still shop my collection online and treat yourself to 20% off with the code HOLIDAY20.

Happy Holidays!

 

COEUR LA

Last week was a pretty huge milestone for Corey Egan Metalsmithing. COEUR LA was my very first wholesale trade show! It also marked my first show outside of the Bay Area. Below are some of the photos of my lovely booth at the Cooper Design Space, complete with brand new wooden fixtures and displays created by David Leggett.

COEUR was a relaxed, fun environment filled with incredible accessories, clothing, shoes and home goods. The show was held during LA’s fashion week on the 11th floor of the Cooper Design Space, which really was the place-to-be for fashion week shows and activities. I was fortunate to meet some incredible new retailers during this visit which will be announced in the weeks to come. Thanks for a great time Los Angeles! Until next time…
